Adriano's Agony and Ecstasy


Video courtesy of YouTube.

Adriano is an extremely talented but presently troubled young man. After the loss of his father, he succumbed to drink and depression, and has now returned to his native Brasil on loan to Sao Paulo.

On New Year's Eve, he was involved in a car accident. Apparently, it was not his fault, but the event could not have occurred at a worse time.

Internazionale have much time and money invested in this player. A few years ago, "L'imperatore" was the toast of Milan, the Serie A, and world football. He is a striker of tremendous physical and technical gifts. Pavel Nedved of Juventus called him "The Extraterrestial."
Please take a look at the video highlights, and let's hope that Adriano returns to his former potential.
