Kaka unlikely for Beijing Olympics
Adjust font size:

The Brazilian soccer confederation admits Brazil may not be able to rely on Kaka to be available for the Beijing Olympics in August.

"It's going to be very difficult," CBF president Ricardo Teixeira said on Sunday. "We are not in a position to demand his release." The AC Milan player has been saying he wants to help Brazil try to win its first Olympic gold in soccer, but he would need to be released by his Italian club. Milan, currently fourth in Serie A, may need to play in next year's Champions League qualifying round, which has conflicting dates with the Olympics.
