Rangers co-owner Flavio Briatore has branded Manchester City's effort to get AC Milan superstar, Kaká as 'mad'.
Flavio Briatore has never been one to shy away from controversy and his latest outburst sees him take the supporters of football clubs into account in the wake of the since collapsed record breaking transfer saga.
Briatore said: 'If you'd put Schumacher in a Minardi it would have gone nowhere,
'If you put Kaka in this club it would go nowhere. It is completely mad.
'You look at Robinho. When he arrived he looked like he had solved the problem, but now the team looks like it is very close to going down.
'You have to have respect as well because there are people in the grandstands who only earn £14,000 a year.
'They see all this money going to one player, and for me there are no morals at all.'
Flavio helps comprise the second richest board in the world, behind Manchester City - and he believes it is time that clubs introduced a salary cap in order to give a bit of much needed clarity and perspective into the beautiful game.
Briatore believes that the example should be set from the top in order to bring the right ideals into the game.
He said: 'Without a salary cap we will go nowhere,
'When I arrive at my club parking lot it looks like the best car dealership in London because you see only Porsche, Audi and Ferrari.
'Yet there are people out there who have difficulties paying their mortgage.
'I feel the sport needs to set a good example to everybody because it's very challenging.
'I hope we arrive at a point where we impose a salary cap for the players. It's fundamental for the good of the sport.'
