Milan’s Brazilian playmaker Kaka has backed England to be successful under Fabio Capello.
Kaka came up against Capello during his time in Italy and he believes the manager can bring the kind of success he enjoyed while in charge of Milan, Juventus and Roma.
“I don’t think there is any doubt that Fabio Capello is a very fine manager,” Kaka told teh BBC.
“I believe he can win a lot with the England team in the time he spends as the national team manager.”
Kaka has also been impressed by the performances of English teams in this season’s Champions League and hinted that he may even consider a move to the Premier League in future.
“In the last five or six years, English teams have improved a lot and they are consistently at a high level now,” he said.
“Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are all excellent and any of them could win it.
“I believe all the four English clubs have a great chance of making it all the way to the final in Moscow in May.
“But you cannot rule out the other big clubs involved still, such as Barcelona.
Kaka, who has been the subject of intense speculation regarding his future plans, says he is happy at Milan for the time being
“I am very happy here in Milan but if one day I had to leave I would like to play in another big European team.
“The biggest clubs are in Italy, England and Spain so it would be in one of these countries, although it is clear they play differently in these places.
“I think these three championships are the most important in the world at the present moment, all very good and competitive.”
