AC Milan playmaker Kaka is set to miss the start of the Italian season next weekend due to an inflamed knee.
The Brazil international will be sidelined for at least 15 days, the club said Friday, ruling him out of the season opener against Bologna on Aug. 31.
"Today the footballer Kaka was subjected to a control check by professor (Marc) Martens who had already checked up on him in the past few months," Milan said on its Web site. "Martens confirmed that the player's knee is inflammated, and advised him to continue for 15 days with the therapeutic protocol he is following."
