Kaka and Ronaldinho, two of the best footballers in the world, are looking forward to their winter tour in the Emirates. The Brazilians are part of the AC Milan squad that will take part in the Dubai Football Challenge in January. "We had such a great time in Dubai last year," said Kaka. "It is a pleasure to train and compete in such a spectacular city, to play the Challenge in front of a football-loving public will be a great experience."

Milan will take on the German side Hamburg in the Challenge at The Sevens on Jan 6. "Coming to Dubai is something I've been looking forward to, I cannot wait to play in front of what I have heard is a very passionate crowd," added Ronaldinho. lthornhill@thenational.ae
