Real Madrid playmaker Kaka has suffered an injury setback which will keep him out for a further fortnight.
The Brazilian spent around six months on the sidelines following surgery on his left knee after the 2010 World Cup.
He returned to action in January but is now out again after suffering swelling on the knee in the recent goalless draw at Deportivo La Coruna.
A statement on the club’s official website said: “Kaka felt pain on the exterior of his left knee following Real Madrid’s match at La Coruna on 26th February.
“After a complete evaluation, including an MRI, a slight edema on the exterior of his left knee was detected.
“Treatment will include fitness work in the gym and on the pitch. The player is expected to be absent for 15 days.”
The latest injury means Kaka will miss the UEFA Champions League last-16 second leg match against Lyon on 16th March, along with the derby against Atletico Madrid three days later.
