Injured Kaka Waves Payment

Kaka’s first match back at AC Milan ended in a major anti-climax for the former World Player of the Year after he was injured.

The 31-year-old attacking midfielder damaged his thigh during Milan’s 2-2 draw with Torino on Saturday.

He is not expected to play again for at least another month, and will now fear that his second coming at the San Siro will be hampered by the injury travails that ensured his career at Real Madrid never quite took off.

But he is determined to get back to fitness as soon as possible, and because he is still in the honeymoon period after his return ‘home’ to Milan, Kaka says he does not even want to get paid until he is ready to play.

"I have spoken at length with the club and in the end I decided that I don't want anything from Milan except love and support until I'm fully fit and ready to play," he said.

"So I have decided to not to be paid for this period of time. The only thing that I ask is the support and help to recover in the best way.

"I have started my rehabilitation and the support from you [the fans] and everything I have heard in the last couple of days really drives me on and makes me determined to come back as soon as possible."
