MADRID - Real Madrid and Brazil playmaker
Kaka, the 2007 World Player of the Year, will be out for about
15 days after injuring the left knee that was operated on
following the 2010 World Cup.
Kaka, who made his first appearance of the season for the
Spanish club in January, had a series of tests which revealed
the extent of the knee problem, the team said on their website on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old former AC Milan player will miss Saturday's
La Liga match at home to Hercules as well as next week's
Champions League last-16 second leg against Olympique Lyon, also
at Real's Bernabeu stadium.
Coach Jose Mourinho told a news conference on Saturday it
was better for Kaka, who has struggled to regain his best form
since his return, to get properly fit before playing again.
