Luiz Felipe Scolari has given hope to AC Milan attacker Kaka that he could make a recall to the Brazil team in time for next year’s World Cup.
Kaka has returned to regular first-team action after making the switch from Real Madrid to the Serie A giants earlier in the year.
And Scolari admitted he is keeping his eye on the returning Rossoneri as he continues to tinker with his squad for next year’s finals.
"I was happy with Kaka's decision to sign with the team that gave him the chance to be at his best once more," he told reporters.
"I'm watching all Milan fixtures. He can certainly have a good opportunity in the future."
And Kaka can take extra hope from the recall of compatriot and Milan team-mate Robinho to the Brazil squad for the friendlies against Honduras and Chile.
Scolari admitted he could not ignore the 29-year-old’s recent good form with Milan.
"Robinho has participated in two World Cups. His quality, technique and his joy can be useful," he added.
"It was time to call him up to see if he can be important in the World Cup."
