Recently while reading the post match reactions of Champion's league semifinal, I saw a lot of comments blaming Kaka for the loss. What I failed to understand is what Kaka did wrong. As soon as he came on you could see him all over the field, making runs and taking on defenders. Apart from not taking a shot from Granero's long ball and getting a penalty saved he tried his best. Everyone suddenly has taken a u-turn and now we don't want him on he team. What all of us seem to have forgotten is how much he had contributed before the match. Sure there were times, mostly in the first half, when he wasn't seen a lot but he made up for it in the second half. The chemistry between him, Ozil and Ronaldo seemed better than that between di maria, Ozil and Ronaldo. We actually did better without di maria's selfishness. And do not forget if Kaka wasn't there then we might as well have had Callejon on the wings in all the matches (and as of yet that is not a good prospect). We can almost assuredly expect one of the front 4 to get injured next season too and then Kaka will be the missing orb from our galactic team. Kaka has been an important cog in Mourinho's engine and his presence on the bench itself must have given Mourinho a peace of mind which jese, Callejon and Morata can not.

Believe me if it had been di Maria involved in those moves instead of Kaka, those wouldn't have been goals. Di maria is a great player,sure, but he doesn't have the maturity and experience to take so quick decisions. Kaka and Ronaldo combine like a dream.
If you are still worried about his peformance against Munich, why don't I see people raising Questions about Higuain. He contributed even less then Kaka in that match and spoiled an almost certain goalscoring opportunity by coming in between Marcelo and Ronaldo in those dying minutes of extra time.
Amongst all the stars and big names of Real, Kaka is perhaps one of the few who who inspires support from fans and helps get a little sympathy from the refs. Also Kaka is unselfish and has the qualities required for being the perfect substitute. Maybe those who say that he will never be his brilliant self from milan but he is still one of the best in that position. otherwise why would Chelsea, Man city and PSG be behind his expensive services.
