Brasilia, Aug 3 (Xinhua) Brazilian international Kaka still feels pain months after an arthroscopic knee surgery. In a match between his Italian club Milan and Spanish club Sevilla, Kaka came off because of pain, which he feels is tendonitis.

Kaka underwent corrective surgery on his left knee in May and he was expected to recover quickly as the head coach of the Brazilian national soccer team, Dunga was counting on his presence during the Olympic Games in Beijing this week.

However, the player was not relieved by Milan, to participate in the Olympics. His team mate at Milan, Alexandre Pato, was cleared to play and will be playing along side the team’s main attraction, Ronaldinho.

Kaka was expected to be fit in two weeks, but it now appears he may need more time to recover not only physically but mentally as well.

Kaka, who was operated upon in Rio de Janeiro, by Brazilian national team doctor Jose Luiz Runco, will return, if necessary, to Brazil for a check-up by the doctor.
