Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti says that Brazilian midfielder Kaka will need to increase his pace before the start of the season.
The Italian played an instrumental part in turning Kaka into one of the top footballers in the world during their time together at AC Milan.
The Brazilian then moved to the Santiago Bernabeu in 2009 and has failed to hit similar heights - and Ancelotti says that he has put the player on specific training to increase his physical condition.
"He’s very motivated, as is everyone. He needed to do specific work because he needs to improve his speed. He started individual work two days earlier and we’ll see what happens in the coming days," he told AS.
"I think his physical condition is going to improve. He’s very motivated; he didn’t play much last season and he wants to do better this year.”
Ancelotti also gave his take on having Diego Lopez and Iker Casillas in the squad, "What’s most important is that we have two very good keepers who have experience and quality. I think that’s what we need for next season: two high-quality keepers."
