Real Madrid boss Mourinho says Kaka will see Getafe action
Kaka, a £56million signing from AC Milan in the summer of 2009, has not represented Madrid since last May and underwent a meniscus operation in August, but he has been called up by Jose Mourinho for the trip to the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
Mourinho confirmed Kaka is not yet ready to push for a starting spot but suggested the Brazilian could get a run-out at the end of Monday's derby.
"He will not be a starter against Getafe, he's not even close to that yet. He can give us 15 or 20 minutes of his great quality, but no more," said the Portuguese.
"We need to highlight what a fantastic professional he is for having done such an incredible job. The medical team have followed him very closely and he's had a recovery expert with him practically 24 hours a day working very hard.
"Now that Kaka has returned it's time to congratulate everyone who has worked with him, and above all the player himself, who has been a fantastic processional."
