Kaka and Robinho can't halt Milan's slump
AC Milan's Brazilan contingent failed to stop the club's continued slump as they fell to a thrilling 4-3 defeat at lowly Sassuolo in Serie A's late Sunday fixture.
Despite a more consistent level of performance since the turn of the year, the Rossoneri still incredibly find themselves in the bottom half of the table following today's reverse; they are 30 points behind leaders Juventus.
And the attacking duo of Kaka and Robinho helped their side get off to a blistering start, combining well with Mario Balotelli before the former scored the game's opening goal after nine minutes.
Both South Americans have enjoyed something of a renaissance in recent months at Milan and have been included in Luiz Felipe Scolari's friendly squads, suggesting that the manager is willing to consider all avenues for this year's World Cup.
Kaka has received rave reviews in the past weeks whilst Robinho, with 92 caps and 27 goals to his credit, was recalled to the nationalo team last year after a two-year absence.
