This is a double blow for Arsenal even though their UEFA Champions League last 16,first leg tie against reigning European champions AC Milan is still a week away.
Goal.com reports that Milan will have both Kaka and Gennaro Gattuso back from their respective injuries against Arsenal on February 20 first leg tie at teh San Siro. Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti says:
Gattuso is fine, he has recovered very quickly, also thanks to the great application that he had during treatment. He is a great professional. Pato is a bit behind Kaka. Ricky will be available against Parma [at the weekend].
Kaka appears to have recovered from a knee injury and his comeback would boost Milan as they try and retain their UEFA Champions League title. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger must surely have taken his notebook out and has started planning on how to stop the 25-year old Brazilian ace.
