MOST COMMENTED

Kaka endured an unhappy second debut with AC Milan on Saturday, coming off after 70 minutes with his team trailing 2-0 away to Torino. Even though Milan eventually fought back to 2-2, things got worse for the Brazilian when scans revealed that he had torn his left adductor muscle, an injury that will keep him out of action for up to a month. Kaka confirmed the injury on Monday and revealed that he decided to forgo his salary during the time that he is out injured.

"As you will have read on the Milan site about my injury, it really is a horrible day for me because I did not expect this," the midfielder said. "I’ve decided to suspend my own salary during this period because all I want from Milan instead is support and affection to help me cure as quickly as possible. I’ve started physiotherapy today and your affection in these days will give me the lift and the motivation to get back onto the field as quickly as possible. It’s a difficult time and I hope to be back on the field as soon as possible."

Kaka is not the only Milan player who will miss Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League opener against Celtic: Giampaolo Pazzini, Ignazio Abate, Matias Silvestre, Daniele Bonera, Riccardo Montolivo and Mattia De Sciglio have also been ruled out, while Stephan El Shaarawy is a big doubt.
