Kaká “not sad” about being over-looked for the World Cup
Kaká has insisted he is “not sad” about being over-looked for the World Cup.
The 31 year-old was seen as an outsider to be selected, but his return of seven goals in 28 appearances this season for Milan was not enough to earn him at recall to the Seleção.
“It’s a pity, but I am not sad because I did everything I could,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“[Brazil Head Coach Luiz Felipe] Scolari has always been consistent and made his choices. He hadn’t called me recently, so it would’ve been a surprise to be included. Robinho took the decision the same way I did, we gave it our all to go to the World Cup, but Scolari made other choices.”
Kaká, who rejoined Milan on a free transfer from Real Madrid in August, last played for Brazil in 2013. The play-maker has been capped 87 times and was selected for the World Cup in 2002, 2006 and 2010.
