AC Milan star Kaka said Monday he has asked the club to stop paying his salary until he recovers from the injury picked up Saturday.

The 31-year-old Brazilian will be forced out of action for around a month with a thigh muscle strain which he sustained in the 2-2 draw with Torino, reports Xinhua.

"I have spoken at length with the club and doctors to decide on a few things. In the end, I decided that I don't want anything from Milan except for love and support until I am better and fully fit to play again. I have decided to suspend my current pay for this period of time," he said.

"I have already started my rehabilitation and I have to say that your support and everything I have heard over the last few days really drives me on and makes me determined to come back as soon as possible."
