Cafu hadn't been performing very well recently
This time out for him to recuperate his muscular injury
May also be a good chance for him to recuperate his form back to health

Someone on another thread said outright that Cafu is "finished." Do you think that's true?

I don't think so. He's just struggling at the moment.

Altough I hope that's not the case, I fear it kinda is. It's obvious he's not playing like he used to for a long time. Anyway, I think we need a replacement for him, and until we get it, Simic's the man.

Cafu eyes Brazil homecoming

Marcos Cafu has confirmed he’ll end his career at San Paolo, suggesting this will be his last season with Milan.

“I have just one dream: to return to San Paolo as a player,” he told Brazilian newspaper ‘Globo Esporte.’ “When I moved to Europe, I left the door open for a comeback.”

As Cafu will be 36 years old at the end of the current campaign, it’s highly unlikely he will put this move off for another season.

The right-back left San Paolo after six years to join Spanish outfit Real Saragozza in 1994, but returned to Brazil soon after for Palmeiras.

His Serie A career took off with Roma in 1997 and he went on to win the Scudetto and 1994 and 2002 World Cups.

All set for a spell in Japan after his contract with the Giallorossi expired in the summer of 2003, Cafu was instead handed a revival at Milan, lifting another Serie A title.

News of his departure is a blow for the Rossoneri, who are also losing Jaap Stam at the end of this season, as the Dutchman has already revealed he’ll go back to Holland.

As Paolo Maldini and Alessandro Costacurta are in their late thirties, a revolution will be needed in Carlo Ancelotti’s defence.

The most likely target to replace Cafu at right-back is Lazio's Italian international Massimo Oddo, though Marco Cassetti of Lecce and Reggina's Giandomenico Mesto are other options.

Meanwhile, the indefatigable Cafu jokingly explained that he would gladly go back over his glittering career and change a few things.

“If I were to do it all again, I’d try to play as a striker. Someone like me has to push forward, come back to defend, go up the field again and put in a cross. If you make a mistake, the attacker moans and shouts at you. Yes, it’s definitely easier to be a hitman in football!”

CAFU: 'Still a lot of desire to play in this shirt'
1/2/2006
MILAN - Il Corriere dello Sport reported what Marcos Cafu had to say about his future at Milan: 'I don't feel as if I have arrived at the end of my experience as a player in Europe. I still have a lot of desire to do well, I think a good season will set up a great World Cup. I am content at Milan and I have to say the club have always been very open with me so I have a desire to keep playing in this shirt. If Milan want me for another year I will sign. But I will know nearer the time.

Cicinho pretty much kissed us off in order to jump to Madrid, so us not signing him is no fault of our own.

What I heard is that Cincinho has expressed his desire to wear the Rossoneri shirt in an interview upon approval of his Italian passport.....not sure if it's true....

Can't think of any great rightback who is an apparent successor to Cafu - I believe he's still the best in his position.....
