Cafu backs Milan in their Scudetto push: “I think it could be the right year”

By Oliver Fisher -

Former AC Milan defender Cafu has claimed that the Rossoneri can go on and win the Serie A title this year and end an 11-year wait for the league.

Milan have found themselves as the outright leaders of the Serie A table thanks to recent wins against Napoli and Empoli, and even though there are still nine games to go in the season there is growing optimism that the team will be right in the title fight until the very last few games.

Cafu was a champion of Italy with Roma in 2001 and he was interviewed on the microphones of ‘Il Diabolico e il Divino’ – a radio show hosted by Giuseppe Falcao, Simone LP and Gabriele Ziantoni on New Sound Level 90FM – about the current season.

“I managed to win something, it was a very good career. If I have to choose between winning the Champions League with Milan and winning the Scudetto with Roma, I choose the Scudetto with Roma,” he said (via PianetaMilan).

“I really believe that this is a good year, Milan have a great squad and a great coach and they are in a place where if they get out in front of everyone it will be difficult for them to difficult to recover. In any case, it is a very balanced season that will be fought until the end, but I think it could be the right year.”

How much has football changed and who is the strongest striker you have faces?

“Ronaldo the Phenomenon the strongest. Football has changed for the worse, before it was more played and we had more fun. The strongest striker was undoubtedly Ronaldo the Phenomenon and after Ronaldo Romario. They scored and played in an incredible way.

“They don’t play good football anymore, now you play only for the result. When we talk about the full-back, one-time the full-back did an incredible job on the wing. It was a football full of strong teams and there were strong players everywhere. Today I see a more aggressive and less poetic football and VAR certainly did not help.”

Is there a player like Kaka in the world?

“I am the worst player in the world to make comparisons with other players because everyone has the characteristics of him. Kakà did crazy things in football, he had a touch of class, a poise, a way of playing on the pitch that cannot be matched. Then Kaka always kept his head up, when a ball came from him he always knew what he had to do and always found free space.”
