Kaka to miss Milan derby

AC Milan's Brazilian playmaker Ricardo Kaka will miss next weekend's Milan derby after picking up a foot injury.

Ricardo KakaKaka scored a penalty in Milan's 1-1 draw with Reggina on Saturday night but soon asked to be taken off and the injury is likely to keep him out for two weeks.

Milan, who trail Serie A leaders Inter by eight points, face their city rivals on Sunday night.

"Kaka reported a trauma to his left foot," a statement read. "The checks made after Milan-Reggina did not show any kind of fracture.

"The prognosis is at least 15 days."

The foot injury means Kaka will also miss Brazil's friendly with Italy at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.
