Milan Praise Kaka's Charity

AC Milan have praised Kaka’s decision to wave payment until he recovers from his latest injury setback.

After returning to the San Siro at the crest of a wave of emotion, Kaka was dumped back to earth with an injury in his first match back last weekend.

In a move set to save cash-strapped Milan as much as €600 000, Kaka says that he would rather receive the love of the Rossoneri faithful while he recovers, than money from the club’s coffers.

Kaka’s gesture has worked as intended, and Milan’s vice-president, Adriano Galliani, has responded in almost reverential terms.

"Ricky is an extraordinary person. He called me, crying down the phone," Galliani said.

"He told me that he wanted to feel Milan’s affection and that he did not want a single euro until he was able to play again.

"This just underlines the extraordinary relationship between the fans and Kaka. I spoke to him on Friday afternoon and he told me how delighted he was to be back with Milan.

"The news today is not Kaka’s injury, but the demonstration on the part of Ricky, after the one 15 days ago when he lowered his salary considerably, that he wanted to send out another signal, and it’s fantastic."

Meanwhile, Milan are readying themselves to face Scottish champions Glasgow Celtic in the Champions League on Wednesday night with an injury ravaged squad.

Along with Kaka, all of Giampaolo Pazzini, Ignazio Abate, Matias Silvestre, Daniele Bonera, Riccardo Montolivo and Mattia De Sciglio have been ruled out of the match due to injury.
