Former AC Milan forward Kaka discussed tomorrow’s derby meeting between Inter and the Rossoneri in an interview in today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

First, the former Rossoneri attacking midfielder discussed what he expects from tomorrow’s Milanese derby, considering the points gap between the two sides.

“A derby that will allow Milan to make a real turn. A match like this can give a big boost, the San Siro is a wonderful sight.”

The 37-year-old Brazilian then touched on the plans of the clubs to build a new stadium and change the San Siro into a free sports arena.

“I hope they retain at least some architectural elements. I understand that football is business, that in stadiums you have to do a lot of things and you can’t stop because of emotions, but something has to stay. Maracanà has changed its face many times and it’s not the same thing anymore. There’s still history inside, but it’s not the same.”

Kaka also spoke about the differences between his AC Milan and the current one.

“Times change, there have been many economic and management problems. I can see that the ranking has improved, but above all I hope that the owners of Milan and Inter will start investing as much as necessary to return to the top. The time is now. Inter and Milan are historic teams, Milan is a beautiful city, Italy is a wonderful country. It makes me sad not to find the Milanese teams in the knockout stages of the Champions League. I think you have to restart a virtuous circle, with the Champions League, you can sign great players and return to the top.”

Finally, Kaka gave his prediction for tomorrow’s game.

“Ibra will score and then let’s hope it will go well…”

The Rossoneri are currently 19 points behind the Nerazzurri in the league table, sitting in 9th place. They are only one point behind 6th place Bologna, although their seven-point gap from 4th place Atalanta means qualification for next season’s Champions League is unlikely.

Inter, on the other hand, are 2nd in the league after 22 games. They are only three points behind rivals and league leaders Juventus, who are playing 10th place Hellas Verona later this evening.
