Kaka To rehab at Orlando Clubs facility
ORLANDO, FLORIDA – Orlando City midfielder Kaká has been ruled out of Brazil’s Copa América squad due to a minor muscle strain. Kaká was called up to the Seleção last week.
Kaká suffered a minor muscle strain while training with the Brazilian national team in California. The injury usually requires a two- to three-week recovery period, though the extent of his injury is unclear at this time.
The Orlando City captain will return to the Lions’ training facility at Sylvan Lake Park to continue rehabilitating before being released to Brazil, where he will continue receiving treatment. One Orlando City SC medical personnel will accompany Kaká to Brazil before returning to Orlando.
This was the 2007 FIFA World Player of the Year’s first Copa América call-up. Kaká was a part of Brazil’s 2002 FIFA World Cup championship team, as well as its 2006 and 2010 World Cup squads.
