Edmílson: Kaká can be important for Seleção
Former Brazil international Edmílson has told Arena SporTV that he thinks the recall of Kaká to the national team for the upcoming friendlies against Iraq and Japan is a wise move by coach Mano Menezes.
Kaká has struggled for form and fitness since moving to Real Madrid in 2009 and this summer it looked as though his coach in Madrid, Jose Mourinho, had decided he could do without the former AC Milan star.
However the 30-year-old has made a strong start to the season and his form has not gone unnoticed back in Brazil.
Edmílson, who was capped 42 times by Brazil, thinks that the playmaker can have an important role in the squad and that he is the perfect role model to help the younger players.
He said: "The team has a lot of kids. It needs one or two more experienced players who have been to a World Cup. Players like Ronaldinho, Robinho, Pato, Adriano couldn't fit in the needed role. I think Kaká is different. To have him in that mix, even if you play just 50% of the time, will be of fundamental importance."
