Adriano: “I’m staying at Roma”

Adriano has vowed to stay at Roma during the January transfer window despite strong rumours linking him with a return to his home country of Brazil. Adriano played for Brazilian club Flamengo last season and his good form earned him a move to Roma, but he hasn’t found his feet since returning to Italy.
He has started just one league match and is yet to score for his new club, and recently Corinthians announced they had struck a deal to sign him. However, the 28-year-old has quashed talk of a homecoming.
He said: “I am not thinking about Brazil. I am a Roma player and this team can hold its own in the Champions League and Serie A. Flamengo, Palmeiras and Corinthians? I have made my choice and it’s Roma.”
Adriano also hit out at rumours that he had already agreed a move to Corinthians, saying: “I wanted to speak after everything that I heard against me. It’s not nice when people speak about Adriano without hearing him first.
“Too many people are talking, especially in Brazil. They said I was in Rio De Janeiro a few weeks ago having fun with girls, but in fact I was training hard at Trigoria recovering from my ankle injury.”

Giallorossi president Rosella Sensi always claimed she wouldn’t sell the striker, and he now looks set to revive his Roma career after such a poor start. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
