Brazil's national team manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has stated that he has not seen enough from Kaka to suggest that he is back to his best. The former Chelsea manager was on hand to witness the Brazilian midfielder play for AC Milan in the derby against Inter Milan.

They were beaten by their arch rivals 1-0 at the San Siro. Kaka played the full match, but he was not at his best. As a result, Milan slipped into the bottom half of the table. Rodrigo Palacio scored the only goal of the game late on in the encounter.

It has been heavily rumoured that Scolari may be prepared to leave out Kaka for the World Cup squad. The former Real Madrid midfielder only recently made the move to Milan in order to resurrect his career, which has suffered since the move to Spain. Before his Real Madrid move, he was considered as one of the best midfielders in the world. The presence of players like Oscar, who are very much similar to him, makes it difficult for Kaka to get into the national team squad.
Scolari refused to make any promises about Kaka being at the World Cup 2014, which the player stated as his big ambition right now.

"I came to take a look at the Brazilians, but they played normal. Kaka didn't have a great game, he wasn't bad but he didn't shine either. I don't know if I will call up Kaka for the World Cup. I came to look at him and Inter's Jonathan and Juan Jesus. There are still six months left until the World Cup and there is time to evaluate the squad," said Scolari.

There is big pressure on the manager to deliver the World Cup, which will be held on home soil after more than 50 years.
