Kaká’s interview for CBF TV
Kaká: I knew about my call in the moment it was announced [in the media]. I felt as happy as the first time I was called on. I’m excited, because I followed all the calls so far… even the ones I knew I wouldn’t be on the list… I wanted to know who were on the team, who would play. I always follow the NT. But this time, that there was some expectations [on being called], I followed it until I finally knew I was on.
I can see a restart [on the NT], specially after all I went through, the injuries, surgeries, not knowing in which physical conditions I would be back [to play]. There were 2 years and some months of preparation to get on shape to be back to the NT… so I see [this call] as a restart.
I wanted to play again [on the NT], but I knew I would have to wait. During some time I was far from being called, due the injuries, for don’t be playing that often… little by little the problems were disappearing, I was returning and the things, now, are getting on track and making my return something possible. Many of them [the new players], didn’t even have met personally, just on TV. Some I had already have contact with, so… it’s very good to see them again, have some chat… the atmosphere in the NT is always good and I belive it will always be like this.
As I said, I’m truly happy for playing again for Brazil, and that’s the point… keep adding personal and coletive objectives, that’s my journey in the NT. I think there are a lot of things I aim to do. I know how the things run in football, everything happens very fast. So one step at a time, I will return, I want reaffirm my position on the NT, conquer my room again, little by little, and then, further, we will see what happens.
