Kaka has told AC Milan not to pay him as he recovers from a new injury setback. He is set to be out for a month with a thigh injury, and has told the Rossoneri not to pay him whilst he is on the sidelines.

"Kaka has made an extraordinary gesture in deciding not get paid while injured," vice president Adriano Galliani told reporters.

"He deserves to be applauded.

"Kaka was crying because of his injury when I spoke with him on the phone yesterday.

"It's nothing to ashamed of."
