The 27-year-old playmaker believes that his years of service with the Rossoneri will ensure that he is granted a generous welcome when he returns as a Blanco in midweek...
Real Madrid ace Kaka is expecting a friendly reception from Milan fans when the two giants clash at the San Siro on Tuesday night.

The Brazilian spent six years in Milan, and he now returns as an opponent. However, Kaka feels he will be spared the wrath of Rossoneri tifosi.

"For what happened over the years, I am expecting a nice welcome from the Milan fans," Kaka told the press as Real Madrid landed at Malpensa Airport.

"It will be a difficult game for us."

Milan's Marco Borriello claimed Kaka was not the player he used to be and that the Merengues are in crisis, but the Brazilian thinks it was just a bit of pre-match banter between friends.

"I am sure he was only joking," concluded the Brazilian.

The Rossoneri are joint leaders of Group C with Los Blancos heading into the Matchday 4 showdown.
