`Kaka, Ganso can play together`
Sao Paulo: Sao Paulo coach Muricy Ramalho insists there is room for Brazil playmakers Paulo Henrique Ganso and Kaka in the same team.
Kaka is expected to make his first appearance for Sao Paulo against Chapecoense in Brazil`s Serie A championship Saturday after joining the club on a six-month loan.
Ganso has regained glimpses of his best form in 2014 as he recovers from injury and a prolonged form slump.
"They can play together," Muricy said. "Ganso is different. He likes to be involved but doesn`t go into the area much. Kaka does, and he creates more in the opposition area.
"They have different characteristics. All good players can play together if they are willing to work hard for the team and not only for themselves."
Bidding for their seventh league title and first since 2008, Sao Paulo are currently third in the league standings.
Their star-studded attack also includes former Brazil strikers Luis Fabiano and Alexandre Pato, as well as highly rated forward Alan Kardec.
Muricy stopped short of suggesting that all could feature in the same team.
"To play with all of them together might be difficult because balance is fundamental," Muricy said.
We are going to have quality on the ball, which is important. But when we don`t have the ball, if we don`t work hard to defend, it`s going to be difficult."
