Kaka unlikely to face Napoli

Ricky Kaka is increasingly likely to miss Saturday’s Napoli-Milan match, as he skipped training again today.

The Brazilian has been suffering from flu symptoms and did not train with his teammates on Wednesday or Thursday.

As the Serie A game is on Saturday night and the Rossoneri must also prepare for the Champions League encounter with Atletico Madrid, it is likely Kaka will be rested until he has fully recovered.

This would suggest Keisuke Honda, Robinho and newcomer Adel Taarabt are to be the trio supporting Mario Balotelli.

Michael Essien could possibly also receive his Milan debut in midfield.
