The new Ricardo Kaka: Starter at the Camp Nou?

Football is a mood and Ricardo Kaka represents it perfectly. After more than three and a half seasons of injuries and disappointments, the Brazilian has found his best shape since he wears white and trusts to be in the starting line-up tomorrow at the Camp Nou in the second leg of the Spanish Cup semifinals. Mourinho did not give him a minute in the first leg, but since then Kaka has reversed the situation with his performances against Sevilla (February 9), Rayo Vallecano (February 17) and Deportivo on Saturday.

Against Deportivo he made again a great performance: in 90 minutes recovered 4 turnovers, gave 45 good passes (90%), 5 bad and had a 100% success: a shot at goal, a goal. Karanka showed the key to his transformation: "His mood is helping. It's Important to be at this level, is an alternative." In fact, Mourinho thinks about Kaka as starter at Old Trafford in the Champions League before the slope of Di Maria (was sent off against Deportivo, but can play the Spanish Cup clash).

At the end of the last Real Madrid match, the player highlighted the importance of the victory and analysed the performance of the players: “An important victory in a very difficult match. In the first half we were a little anxious and we made a few mistakes. In the second half we improved and we won three points that are important for us and for what is come over the next weeks”.

Because Kaka left Riazor Stadium with an eye to the Camp Nou: "Let's see what happens in this key week. The coach has to decide. I'm going to keep doing my job." Hours after, he sent this message in social networks: "Certainty of things hoped for, the conviction of unseen. Stay positive, fighting, be brave, have ambition, stay focused, be strong. Mentality is everything."
