Injured Kaka asks Milan not to pay him salary

Milan, Sep 16 (IANS) AC Milan star Kaka said Monday he has asked the club to stop paying his salary until he recovers from the injury picked up Saturday.

The 31-year-old Brazilian will be forced out of action for around a month with a thigh muscle strain which he sustained in the 2-2 draw with Torino, reports Xinhua.

"I have spoken at length with the club and 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 and fully fit to play again. I have decided to suspend my current pay for this period of time," he said.

"I have already started my rehabilitation and I have to say that your support and everything I have heard over the last few days really drives me on and makes me determined to come back as soon as possible."
