The 33-year-old left-sided player is in his sixth season with Milan, having previously played for CR Flamengo and São Paulo FC. He has been limited to seven Serie A appearances this term - all as substitute - yet scored in Milan's 3-2 victory against Udinese Calcio in their Coppa Italian quarter-final first leg on Wednesday night.
Striker Filippo Inzaghi also played in the game at the San Siro, returning from two months on the sidelines with an ankle injury. However, the Italian international broke a bone in his right hand and now faces a two-week lay-off.
