Real Madrid's misfiring former Ballon d'Or winner, Kaka, is hoping to get more playing time this season under the leadership of Carlo Ancelotti.
Kaka had enjoyed his best years with AC Milan whilst the Italian club was managed by Ancelotti, and the Brazilian is hoping to recapture some of his former form under the stewardship of the Italian at Madrid this season, with whom he has a very good relationship.
He hopes to play a more active role in Madrid's campaign in the upcoming season with the player targeting a place in Brazil's World Cup squad next year.
"My goal is to play more regularly. To be physically strong, play more at Real Madrid and get back into the national side ready for the World Cup at the end of the season," said Kaka.
Kaka offered an insight into his relationship with the Italian manager by saying: "As a coach he is very open and this is helping me a lot. Training with him is very good for me."
The playmaker also has high hopes for this seasons Champions League campaign, adding: "Both of them are big competitions, but winning a tenth title for Real Madrid would be really something. It's very exciting. I really want to win the Champions League at Real. We have a strong team and I'm really motivated, I think we can do big things this season and on a personal level I have high hopes."
Kaka, who moved to Madrid in the summer of 2009 for a fee of around €65 million, has failed to justify the astronomical transfer fee the Spanish club paid Milan for his services in the four years since. He made a mere 12 starts for the Los Blancos last season.
