RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Botafogo midfielder Clarence Seedorf will be sidelined for at least a week from the Brazilian league because of a right thigh injury.

Botafogo said Monday that the Dutch player underwent tests but requires a new medical evaluation next week to determine the seriousness of the injury.

Seedorf had to be substituted just before halftime in Botafogo's 4-0 win over Atletico Goianiense on Saturday. He appeared to be in tears as he left the field.

The 36-year-old Seedorf signed with Botafogo in July and has helped the team to sixth place in the 20-team standings, staying in contention for the Copa Libertadores next year. The former Real Madrid and AC Milan player has scored nine goals for the Brazilian club.
