Robinho is delighted Kakà has returned and dreams of a World Cup place
Milan forward Robinho is delighted that fellow Brazilian Kakà has returned to the club.
The duo combined for the opening goal in Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Barcelona.
Robinho insists Kakà brings the best out of him and believes he is returning to form at just the right time.
"I'm well, I'm happy because my form has become ideal again and because I'm playing football. My brother Ricky [Kakà] has come back," he said, as reported by goal.com.
"We've always been friends, on and off the field. It represents a lot to have him back. I did everything possible to bring him back to Milan.
"He has incredible quality, he is always an example, even in private life. If he is physically fit and gets back to how he was before he went to Real Madrid he could win the Ballon d'Or."
Robinho seemed set to return to Santos this summer. He eventually, however, decided to stay and agreed a new contract with Milan. The forward has no regrets.
"I admit there were long periods of doubt. I decided to stay with Milan, I renewed my contract for three years,” the 29 year-old continued.
"I spoke with my family. We all love Milan, it's a beautiful city. I've put a lid on the return to Santos, at least until my contract with Milan is up [in June 2016]."
"It has always been my mentality not to give up. It must be a great season for me and AC Milan. I'll try to get back into the national team and go to the World Cup."
