AC Milan's Brazilian star Ronaldinho has been ruled of the weekend's four-team Emirates Cup in London because of a muscle strain in his left leg, the Italian side announced on Thursday.

The 30-year-old former Barcelona winger was hurt in training and will rest for seven days. AC Milan join hosts Arsenal, Lyon and Celtic in the Emirates Cup pre-season event, which takes place on Saturday and Sunday.

The player will not be available for the Emirates Cup matches and will miss around seven days.
