Kaká suspends pay
Brazilian international Kaká has decided to suspend his pay at Milan until he returns to fitness.
The trequartista suffered a thigh strain during the Rossoneri’s 2-2 draw with Torino on Saturday and had to be replaced by Slovenian winger Valter Birsa.
Kaká is expected to be unavailable for around four weeks as a result and will forgo his wages during that period.
“You have probably read about my injury on the Milan website,” said the 31 year-old.
“Yesterday was a bad day for me because in all honesty I was not expecting an injury like this. It was really bad and difficult for me.
“I have spoken at length with the club, with [Vice-President Adriano] Galliani and with the doctors to decide on a few things.
“In the end I decided that I don’t want anything from Milan except for love and support until I am better, until I am fully fit and ready to play again.
“For this reason, I have decided to suspend my current pay for this period of time. The only thing I ask is for support and help to recover properly.”
Kaká returned to Milan on transfer deadline day after four years at Real Madrid.
