Real Madrid ace Kaka will not return to action until he has convinced coach Jose Mourinho of his fitness - in body and mind.

Marca says Kaka missed the victory over Racing Santander after agreeing with Mourinho that he is still not ready to compete at first team level after so long on the sidelines with injury.

Mourinho is counting on Kaka for the final stages of the season and will not risk more damage - physically and mentally - by forcing him to play when he is not ready.

So for the moment, Kaka will be sidelined until further notice.
