Milan: Brazilian Kaka made his long-awaited return for injury-ravaged Milan in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Udinese which came courtesy of Valter Birsa's first-half strike at the San Siro on Saturday.

Milan hosted the northerners without several regulars, with Mario Balotelli, Stephan El Shaarawy, Giampaolo Pazzini, Mattia De Sciglio and Daniele Bonera all ruled out through injury.

Nigel De Jong and Philippe Mexes were both suspended and the Rossoneri suffered a further blow when goalkeeper Christian Abbiati was sidelined hours before kick-off with a knock.
