Kaka: Barcelona game can be turning point for AC Milan

Ahead of his side's Champions League game at Camp Nou on Wednesday, the Brazilian has claimed his team will do everything they can to try and improve their form

AC Milan attacking midfielder Kaka believes his side’s Champions League meeting with Barcelona represents an ideal opportunity for the struggling Italians to turn their season around.

Following their 2-0 defeat to Fiorentina at the weekend, the Rossoneri lie 11th in the Serie A, but the Brazilian believes Wednesday's trip to Camp Nou might bring the best out of Massimiliano Allegri's men, who held their Catalan opponents to a 1-1 draw at San Siro a fortnight ago.

Kaka told Spanish television programme Tiki Taka: “Because of the way they [Barcelona] play, facing them isn’t easy for us.

“What I promise is that we’ll give our all. It’s a difficult time for us, but the game against Barcelona could be an opportunity. We have to try to put in a good performance like we did in the reverse fixture.

“We’ll get out of this bad situation by giving our all. I can’t promise anything else. Goals and assists are technical factors, but I can guarantee that the group [of players] will give its all.”

Meanwhile, the Brazil international is also determined to avoid any more humiliating home defeats following Milan's dismal performance against Fiorentina on Saturday.

“The defeat hurt, because losing 2-0 at the San Siro hurts," the 31-year-old confessed. "The problems won't be solved by talking, but it’s a start.

“I don’t give Allegri tactical advice because that’s something down to the coach. What’s important now is that we stick together as a group.”
