Adriano’s mum says he was ‘suicidal’ at Inter Milan
Striker was on the brink of retiring from football
In an interview with Italian newspaper La Gazetta dello Sport, Adriano‘s mum, Dona Rosilda, has revealed the Brazilian striker was ‘considering suicide’ after a period of depression while at Inter Milan.
The 28-year-old, currently fighting to regain fitness at Roma, hit rock bottom after the death of his father and had a public battle with alcoholism, twice being packed off to Brazil to recover after being pictured falling out of nightclubs and turning up late to training.
Says Dona Rosilda:
Well maybe not a completely new person, but we’re sure he’s getting there. Still, Adriano is a Spoiler favourite and we’re still holding out for the chance he’ll be able to reproduce his blistering form at Flamengo in Serie A.
