Kaka: We Must Stop Inter

AC Milan's Brazilian midfielder Kaka declared that this weekend's derby between his team and Inter Milan is to be worth six points. The Rossoneri are currently 12th in the Serie A standings, 11 points behind leader Inter, with 7 points after the club's 8-point deduction for its part in last season's Calciopoli scandal. Milan returned to winning ways last night by beating Chievo Verona 1-0 away from home through, predictably, another long-range effort, this one from full-back Marek Jankulovski. "I think this derby is worth six points, seeing as if we win we earn three points and they lose three points as well," said Kaka, Milan's attacking midfielder. "We want to do all we can to stop our main rivals." The 24-year-old admitted his side hasn't enjoyed the best run of form recently, scoring just three goals in its last seven games. "I must admit that we are not enjoying much luck at the moment - we have created many opportunities in the past few matches and were not able to score."
