Miguel Pardeza has spoken positively about Kaka's contribution to Real Madrid's win over Deportivo La Coruna, but maintained that all the players need to pull together for the remainder of the campaign.
Los Merengues fell behind to Riki's first-half strike, before goals from Kaka and Gonzalo Higuain late on allowed the visitors to pick up the three points at the Riazor.
Speaking to Realmadrid.com after the game, Pardeza was keen to praise the Brazil international's performance but also highlight his potential impact as the season wears on.
"Kaka has played a very good game and I am happy for him because he's working well," the 48-year-old Spaniard said.
"All the players are important in the long and demanding season we have. We hope it stays that way.
"We are ready and will face our [remaining] games seriously. I am convinced that the team will face all encounters with great integrity and professionalism."
Kaka, who has now scored only three times in his limited outings for los Blancos so far this season, also appeared upbeat about his role at the club.
"I'm getting better and I think things are improving," the 30-year-old stated.
"I'm happy to help the team. If the coach needs me I'll be there."
Real Madrid remain third in the league with 52 points from their 25 fixtures.
