Kaka happy to make sacrifices

AC Milan attacking midfielder Kaka has made it clear that he's happy to make sacrifices for the team, but added that he prefers a central role after he was utilized on the left wing in the 1-1 Champions League draw against Barcelona.

Head coach Massimiliano Allegri opted to use the 31-year-old out wide for tactical reasons, but the Brazilian has stressed that he hopes to return to the middle of the pitch in the future.

"Having played plenty of times against Barcelona, I knew the importance of the flanks. Tactically it needed to be a match of sacrifices," Kaka told reporters.

"The coach knows where I want to play, but every now and again you need to make these sacrifices. I still need to find my best form."

The draw keeps Milan second in Group H going into the final three games of the group, two points behind Barcelona.
