Table of Contents
Real Madrid star Kaká will miss the start of the La Liga season as well as the first few games in the Champions League following a knee surgery.

The Brazilian yesterday underwent a successful operation on his meniscus in Antwerp, Belgium.

Kaká complained of discomfort in his knee during a routine medical check-up after linking up with the Spanish club following his participation in this summer's World Cup.

The 28-year-old struggled all last season with injury after moving to Real from AC Milan, and could be set to miss around two months this term following his latest setback.

A Real statement said: "The operation performed on the left knee of Kaká by Dr Marc Martens at Antwerp's AZ Monica Hospital was a success.

"The arthroscopic surgery confirmed an injury to the left meniscus with minimal inflammation of the cartilage.

"The player is expected to miss three to four months."

Nevertheless, Real coach José Mourinho believes there is enough quality in the squad to cover the playmaker's prolonged absence.

He told a press conference: "If we have to lose him for a while, it won't be a drama, we have other players and that's it.

"But we want him to be at 100% so he is happy. He is a player who is much loved by his team-mates - he is one of the best players in the world."
