Rumours have suggested that Cristiano will quite Adelaide United but the striker says they aren't true. An article in a local Adelaide paper said that Cristiano and the club had mutually agreed to terminate the Brazilian's contract but it is all untrue according to the player himself.

"I am very happy at this club and my family is very happy here in Adelaide," Cristiano said.

"There's no reason to leave the club, I like everyone here and last week there were a lot of things in newspapers saying I was going to leave the club but it's not true.

"For sure I will be here next year. I have one more year of my contract and if there is a possibility to stay longer, I stay longer but I have another year and I'm very happy here."
