Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho says Sahin “is ready to play” in Sunday’s game against Osasuna at Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

Sahin had been sidelined since injuring his left leg in the preseason.

Madrid signed the 23-year-old Sahin to a six-year contract after paying Bundesliga champion Borussia Dortmund his ?10 million ($14 million) buy-out clause in May.

Mourinho also says Kaka will miss Sunday’s match—and will not join Brazil during the upcoming international week—to recover from injury.
