Kaka: I was not a Real Madrid failure

Brazil's Kaka was feeling 'emotional' as returned to Sao Paulo after being loaned by new MLS club Orlando City

Kaka has defended his time at Real Madrid, saying he had not been a failure at the Bernabeu despite critics' claims that he had not lived up to his 67 million euro signing.

- Paul: Kaka exit an opportunity for Milan
- Davis: Orlando welcomes hapy hero Kaka

The Brazilian, who will spend a short spell on loan at his first club Sao Paulo before moving to Major League Soccer outfit Orlando City, moved to Madrid from AC Milan in 2009 before returning on a free last September.

He told Esporte Espetacular: "My time at Real Madrid wasn't a failure -- I played 120 matches, I scored 28 goals and I played an average of 30 games a season.

"What's more, I won three trophies -- La Liga, a Copa del Rey and a Supercopa."

Kaka praised former Bernabeu coach Jose Mourinho for helping him to mature, adding: "He was a person who helped me to grow, to be patient, to fight and to respect the coach's decisions.

"I learned to do everything in my power to show him that I could play. That's what I did during the three years that I worked with him. He helped me to mature -- I went from being a kid to being an adult."

And he said he was hopeful that he could force his way back into the Brazil team under returning coach Dunga, after failing to win a place in Luiz Felipe Scolari's World Cup squad.

"I did everything I could to be in the final squad for the World Cup, but the final decision is the coach's," he said. "I did everything I could, and that's why I have no feelings of frustration about that.

"I want to play well and get results at Sao Paulo. I want to do well and get the rewards if I perform well."
