Brazil legend Rivelino: Kaká needs to leave Real Madrid
Brazil legend Roberto Rivelino believes Real Madrid midfielder Kaká needs to leave the Santiago Bernabeu so that he can play more first-team football.
Kaká has struggled to cement his place in Jose Mourinho's starting eleven having made only five appearances in the Primera Division this season.
Rivelino, who won the World Cup in 1970, suggests the Blancos playmaker would be better off returning to his first club São Paulo.
The 66-year-old said: "He wants to play, but he is having problems getting Mourinho to use him. Kaká could go to a smaller team where he could play more games.
"If he leaves he should return to São Paulo. After all, it is his home. It would be great if Real Madrid let him leave to get games but we might have to accept that it will not happen."
The retired player also hit out at Mano Menezes by stating that the former Brazil boss should have been sacked by the CBF sooner.
He added: "We expected a lot from Menezes and he did not deliver. We are still not sure who Brazil's regular goalkeeper and centre-forward are - two vital positions.
"It was obvious that he wasn't going to make it to the World Cup."
