The Brazilian neglected to secure a standard spot in the Blancos starting XI, with the Portuguese picking Mesut Ozil over him in the lineup. Previous Brazil star Kaka revealed that Jose Mourinho is somehow in charge of his unsatisfactory time at Real Madrid.
The Ballon d’Or winner moved to Madrid from AC Milan in 2009, turning into the 2nd most costly player at any point, however several damage issues plague his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu. When he reclaimed good condition, Mourinho had assumed control as head mentor & frequently let Kaka alone for the starting XI.
Kaka assumed that the mixture of the two elements destroyed his possibility of turning into a star without a doubt, with Mourinho picking Mesut Ozil over him in attacking midfield.
“The problem in Madrid was continuity,” Kaka told SporTV. “First, it was because of the injuries. The first year I had a hip problem. I pushed to reach the World Cup and then I had an adductor injury.”
“After the Cup I have a knee operation and I’m out for six months. And when I return I have Mourinho. My problem in Madrid was continuity.”
“First for the physical issue and then for the choice of the coach. I spent three years trying to convince Mourinho that he could give me opportunities. But it was his choice, it was beyond my reach.”
Regardless of the differences among the two amid their period in Madrid, Kaka says that he has pardoned Mourinho & comprehends the reason he abandon him from the lineup.
“There is no problem between us,” he continued. “I was in Manchester for a sponsorship gig and I stayed at the hotel where Mourinho lived and we talked for two hours.”
“At some point we had a misunderstanding because I believed that I had to play and he believed that I did not. But they were respectful disagreements.”
“I never rebelled and told him ‘I’m leaving here’, nor did I go before the press to complain. I told him: ‘It’s your choice, but I think you could have other options because I think I should have a chance to play. Now, you must choose.”
“He had no arguments. He told me he was not going to play because the position was for Ozil. I thought I could contribute.”
“Mourinho is really what you see in the cameras. He has his explosive moments, but he’s a very smart guy. What people see at press conferences is all prepared and planned and knows exactly what they are going to say. The problem I had with him was because of his choices. I thought he was wrong. But the team worked. We won a league and we reached the Champions League semi-finals.”
