The 31-year-old Brazilian will be forced out of action for around a month with the muscle strain he sustained in the 2-2 draw with Torino on Saturday.

"I have spoken at length with the club, with (vice-president Adriano) Galliani and with the doctors to decide on a few things," he said.

"In the end I decided that I don't want anything from Milan except for love and support until I am better, until I am fully fit and ready to play again. For this reason, I have decided to suspend my current pay for this period of time. The only thing I ask is for support and help to recover properly," 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," he added.
