Kaka claims Milan will be ‘going for the kill’ when they face Manchester United in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final.
Wayne Rooney’s late winner earned United a 3-2 victory in an enthralling encounter at Old Trafford on Tuesday in the first leg.
Brazilian playmaker Kaka, who scored both Milan goals, does not believe that Rooney’s late strike will have an impact on the way Milan approach next week’s game.
“Had we drawn 2-2, it would not have meant the second game would be any easier,” Kaka told the Daily Telegraph. “We would still have had to work our socks off.
“The two teams are very similar, both very strong, who both espouse an attacking brand of football.
“We are two teams who instinctively like to come forward and attack. I think the combination of the teams makes it a joy to watch.
“So there is no guarantee we would be in a better position next week if we had come away with a 2-2. You could never hold back and settle for a draw against a team like Manchester United.
“The second leg will be an exciting match, because it would always be this way whenever these two teams of players meet. But we are going to go for the kill in the San Siro, to win outright.”
Kaka also paid tribute to United duo Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.
He added: “They are both great players. Ronaldo, with his flair and pace, is like a Brazilian player and is amazing.
“Rooney is more a player of strength, but he can decide a game with his speed and strength.
“A lot of people are blaming Dida for that third goal, but the timing of the shot from Rooney was amazing.
“If I was the manager I would pick those two together all the time. I admire them both.”
