Milan playmaker Kaka has identified Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard as the main danger, ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League final.
Kaka has described Gerrard as a ‘modern player’ who has many strings to his bow.
“An excellent player,” said Kaka.
“In my opinion, he is a modern player because he is a player who runs, marks, knows how to pass, cross, score goals, and he is a leader in the field for Liverpool.
“So he is a player that I’d like to have in my team.”
Kaka’s teammate Gennaro Gattuso is expected to shadow Gerrard although the Brazilian is not convinced that there will be specific plans to deal with Liverpool’s captain.
“Gattuso is a fundamental player for Milan because of the amount he runs, and the motivation which he transmits to the team,” he added.
“I can’t see Gattuso run the way he runs and not do anything. So for me, in the field, he is a great motivator.
“Now who he should mark or not mark is up to (Milan coach, Carlo) Ancelotti to decide.”
Kaka’s three goals for Milan were instrumental in their dismantling of Manchester United in the semi-finals, and the Brazilian admits he drew immense satisfaction from that display.
“I like to do a general balance of the semi-final,” concluded Kaka.
“I think that three goals against Manchester is something really special. To be able to score three goals against a team like Manchester, two at Old Trafford and one at San Siro was a privilege.
“But it’s like I always say, it’s about the pleasure of taking my team forward, helping my team, and my team-mates being able to count on me.”
