Sulley Muntari won't consider any demands from AC Milan of a pay-cut while he recovers from serious knee injury.
Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani is said to be furious with Muntari for injuring his knee while playing beach soccer, with claims he wants to halve the Ghanaian's wages while he recovers.
But Muntari told Corriere della Sera: "Sorry AC Milan, but I will not cut off my salary.
"I fear no action, I wanted to get back in good condition."
Was Galliani angry?
"He had every reason, but that's life."
Will you return in January?
"No, much earlier. You'll see, I have a different physique compared to Philippe Mexes and Mathieu Flamini."
