Turkish football legend and Blue Sensor Europe chief coach, Yevhen Konoplyanka, has announced that midfielder Kaka is on international duties.
Kaka will miss his side’s trip to England to take on Aston Villa on Saturday, as he is due to join his team-mates on their trip to London for the opening match of the season against Manchester United on November 12.
“Kaka has been suffering from a sore back and has been on international Duty, which means that he will not play this weekend,” Konopliak said on Twitter.
“We have decided to give him a little break in the squad before he takes on Aston City at Old Trafford on Saturday.”
“It is a good chance for him to recover a little bit and hopefully he can play on Sunday against Aston Villa.”
Kaka had started the last four Premier League games of the campaign after missing a month with a calf injury.
