AC Milan coach Ancelotti to rest Kaka

Ancelotti said: “Let’s hope to play a good game, we must be more careful and applied in the defensive phase, we must try to concede less to the opponent and we must try to be more covered, more prudent, even renouncing to one of our characteristics.

“The system used against Roma can give us good results but it won’t be the same against Empoli, because with Roma we had to cover the pitch in a different way.

“Empoli is a young team, one of the most dynamic of the league. Seedorf, Kaka and Simic played 90 minutes therefore all three will rest.”
