Real Madrid midfielder Kaka is on the road to recovery from his knee problem, says surgeon.
The Brazilian international went under the knife on August 5 in order to cure the cartilage problem that had plagued him since his move from Milan to los Blancos in the summer of 2009.
Dr. Marc Martens, the Belgian that the playmaker entrusted to carry out the examination, has had a meeting with Kaka and discussed the possible date of a comeback to action.
Spanish publication Marca comments that Martens, on examining the progress of the injury found that the cartilage had regenerated as expected, and said that the work Kaka had undergone to rehabilitate had been a success.
Although the 28-year-old is not likely to return to action until the beginning of 2011, the news that he is on the road to recovery will encourage Madridistas, and coach Jose Mourinho, who will hope to have a fully fit and firing Kaka for the season run-in.
