‘I don’t want to be a Kaka, I want to be Reinier’


Reinier Real Madrid 2019-20

New Borussia Dortmund signing Reinier has rejected comparisons with Kaka, the Brazil star who won the Ballon d’Or while playing with AC Milan in 2007.

He has started pre-season training with the Bundesliga outfit with a view to featuring in their squad when domestic action returns in Germany next month, and he is eager to carve a name out for himself on his own merits.

“I don’t want to be a Kaka, I want to be Reinier,” he told the media. “It’s a nice thing to be compared to such a player, but I want to show the football player I am.

“I want to be successful with the club, win titles if possible and give the fans a lot of joy.”

Meanwhile, he said he was quick to jump at the chance to move to Germany when the door opened.

“My family and I didn’t have to think twice,” he said. “This club is known for developing players. When this option appeared, we knew it was the right one.”

Asked about his favoured role, he said: “I can play anywhere up front. Wherever the coach needs me, I'm ready. I want to help the team and do my best for the team.”

The playmaker quickly gained a positive reputation in his homeland for his attacking qualities from the midfield, turning out for Flamengo 14 times in Serie A and scoring six goals before his move to Spain.

Additionally, he has been a regular in Brazil’s youth teams, notably turning out regularly for the Under-23 side previously in 2020.

His qualities have in the pastbeen talked up by Dortmund boss Lucien Favre, who explained: “From what I’ve seen, he’s very good offensively and a very, very good finisher.”
