Brazilian national team manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has said that he is yet to decide whether a partnership between Kaka and Ronaldinho can be formed in the team once again.
Approaching the twilight of their careers, Kaka and Ronaldinho are the last two Brazilian players to have been named as the best player in the world. However, they have been struggling to get into the national team for the last few years under the regime of Dunga and Mano Menezes.
After the appointment of Scolari, it was rumoured that both these players could get a recall to the national team. Ronaldinho played an influential role for the Brazilian national team at the 2002 World Cup when Scolari was at the helm.
Ronaldinho’s form with the Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro prompted a recall to the national team for Scolari’s first game in charge against England. However, the former Barcelona man was extremely poor match. He has not been subsequently involved in the two friendly matches for Brazil against Italy and Russia. Scolari has admitted that he would not like to include both players in the same team, as he prefers playing them separately.
Scolari has been in charge of the national team for three matches in his second spell. However, he is yet to get their first victory.
“I prefer seeing them separately, I preferred to give one a chance first and then the other. Then we’ll see later whether we can play them together or whether it’s better not to. I haven’t completely decided on the group, these training sessions and matches show us which players we should count on. The result is also important. We need to show greater strength, belief and confidence. That can only happen by winning so that’s why the result is also important,” said Scolari.
