UEFA Cup: Ronaldinho Gaucho and Ricardo Kaka to miss match with Werder Bremen

Share |

In a surprising note, international media assure that AC Milan will miss playmakers Ronaldinho and Kaka for the crucial game against Werder Bremen in the UEFA Cup.

In fact, coach Carlo Ancelotti's squad was posted on the Milan official website and did not include the pair of Brazilians, who are both listed as injured. The duo are both suffering from muscular injuries and they will not be available on Thursday evening. The tactician had previously stated that he hoped that they would recover in time, but unfortunately for the Milan squad this has not been the case.

But there is more: long-term injury absentees Alessandro Nesta and Gennaro Gattuso will certainly miss out as well. However, Alexandre Pato and Andriy Shevchenko have both returned to fitness and could start the game at the San Siro.

Indeed, the first-leg ended in a 1-1 draw with Filippo Inzaghi opening the scoring and Werder attacking midfielder Diego claiming a late equaliser.

AC Milan, indeed, have fallen 11 points behind Inter in the Scudetto race and have been knocked out of the Coppa Italia. The UEFA Cup is therefore their last opportunity for earning a title this season.

I really hope that he revives his career. I haven't been the biggest Ronaldinho fan ever, but I acknowledge the impact he made while he was at his prime. I don't think Ronaldo (Christiano) has reached the levels that Ronaldohino did and if he can get back to that level, it will be a great way to end his career.

the 2010 world cup is right here in SA next year, and we are looking forward to seeing the naturally gifted and skilled Brazilians here.

One of my favorite games was almost 13 years ago when Brazil visited South Africa and won 3-2 after being 2-0 behind with all second half goals from Conceicao, Rivaldo and Bebeto.

May we create many more memories like these.
