Kaka denies Real pressure

09 Feb 2010 - 07:12:46

Kaka has denied feeling under pressure to perform at Real Madrid following his big-money move from AC Milan last summer.

The Brazil star returned to the scoresheet for the Spanish giants during Saturday's 3-0 win over Espanyol after a three month absence.

Critics claimed Kaka was struggling to cope with the demands of his £59million price tag during his loss of form, but the former World and European Player of the Year has suggested a fitness problem was more to blame.

Speaking about a long-running hernia problem which prevented him from taking a full part in training, he explained: "At Real Madrid one has to learn to live with pressure as in all great clubs, but I did not feel pressure.

"The only thing that has bothered me in this entire time has been that I was not improving physically.

"The doctors recommended patience, but I never felt pressure. I just wanted to play as I wanted.

"The goal was very special because it had been a few months since I had scored and a lot of time without playing.

"Against Espanyol, it was a good match and I felt more free. Every day my condition improves and one will see better things out of me."
