Kaka leaves hospital after knee surgery

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- Kaka left the hospital Saturday after knee surgery and the FIFA player of the year hopes to play for Brazil next month in two World Cup qualifiers. He is certain to miss two upcoming games in the United States.

"I'm going to get ready. The doctor said I have a chance" to play, AC Milan midfielder said on television as he left Pasteur Hospital.

Dr. Jose Luiz Runco, head physician of the Brazilian national team, performed the arthroscopic surgery Friday. He termed the operation a success but declined to set a timetable for the 26-year-old player's return.

Kaka almost surely will miss exhibitions against Canada in Seattle on May 31 and Venezuela in Boston on June 6. His goal is to return for qualifiers against Paraguay on June 15 and Argentina on June 18. Brazil trails the two in the race to qualify for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
