Real Madrid forward Kaka has left the club's training camp in the USA and flown to Antwerp, where he will feel arthroscopic surgery to repair a meniscus wound. Kaka complained of distress in his knee during a routine medical check-up after connecting up with the Spanish club following his participation in this summer's FIFA World Cup. Additional tests exposed the new injury.
"It is supposed that there may be an injury to the meniscus, which could need arthroscopic surgery," Madrid said on their website this morning. "Kaka has travelled to Belgium accompanied by club doctor Carlos Diez and will be examined by a expert in Antwerp."
The Brazil international struggled all previous season with injury after moving to Madrid from AC Milan, and could be set to miss around two months this term next his latest setback. Nevertheless, coach Jose Mourinho insists the club will be able to manage without the 28-year-old.
"If we have to lose him for a while, it won't be a drama - we have additional players," he said. "But we want him to be at 100 per cent so he is joyful. He is a player who is much loved by his team-mates - he is one of the best players in the globe. Kaka missed Madrid's 3-2 win over Mexican side America on Wednesday night.
