Kakà: “I have a great respect for Benzema”
Kakà seemed really annoyed by medias & journalists. He talked about it on his Twitter account!
“For journalists who write only what they want: at no time today (Friday, Ed), what I said was a criticism to Benzema. I have great respect for him, we‘re friends and I admire Karim as a person and player. As I saidalso, I‘m focused on self-criticism and I know in my situation, I can not demand anything from anyone,except from myself.”
Fond of flashy statements, most of the Spanish media (and French …) have preferred to focus on the passage in which the Brazilian said expect more from his young team-mate – “Sometimes he isn’t completely involved in the game and we think he can do a little more.“- thus obscuring the many praise and encouragement, something that the Ballon d’Or 2007 was not at all appreciated.

With Twitter & Facebook, football players are in direct contact with the public, the gossips have to watch out …
After rumours CR/Casillas, CR/Ramos, Mourinho/Valdano, Mourinho/entire club, now Kakà/Benzema. Medias should really stop doing this. Furthermore, Kakà never criticized any players, it’s not his style. I’m glad that he denied! And I’ll add what Mourinho said: “Kaka always means well. He is too pure to mean any wrong.”
