MILAN (Sporting Alert) — AC Milan have confirmed that Brazilian attacking player Kaka has been ruled out of Wednesday’s Champions League opening Group H clash with Celtic due to an injury.
Kaka, who made a move back to Milan from Real Madrid in the transfer window this summer, made his second debut for the Italian giants in a late 2-2 draw with Torino and was hoping to play apart against Celtic.
However, a hamstring injury will keep the midfielder out.
“AC Milan communicate that the medical carried out for Kakà has revealed a tear to one of his hamstring muscles,” the club said on its official website at www.acmilan.com.
“The player will undergo further tests in ten days time to have a clearer idea of how long he will be out of action for.”
Wednesday night’s clash at the San Siro will see AC Milan facing Celtic for the first time in five years.
Milan returned to training on Monday, following the weekend’s draw and the team is good spirit ahead of the Champions League contest.
Meanwhile, French defender Steven Mouyokolo look well set to miss the entire group stages of the Champions League after rupturing his achilles tendon last week in training.
He will certainly be a big miss for the Scottish champions.
