Kaka to AC Milan: Don't pay me till I'm fit
Injured AC Milan forward Kaka has decided against collecting his wages until he returns to full fitness.
The Brazil international was injured during the second half of Saturday's 2-2 draw at Torino — his first competitive game since he moved back to Italy after a four-year spell at Real Madrid.
Kaka sustained an adductor muscle injury in his left thigh and will undergo further tests in 10 days’ time to confirm the exact recovery period. “Yesterday was a tough day for me as I found out about my injury,” he told acmilan.com.
“I certainly didn’t expect this type of injury at this time. It has been hard and difficult. “I spoke to the club a lot yesterday, to (vice-president Adriano) Galliani and to the doctors to decide on a few things. I have decided that I don’t want anything from Milan except their (moral) support and affection.
“Until I am fit again and ready to play, I have decided not to receive my wages. I have already started the recovery process. The affection I have felt in recent days gives me the added motivation to get fit as soon as possible.”
