The agent of AS Roma striker Adriano has poured cold water on talk of a return to Brazil. Adriano, himself, has spoken of moving back home after struggling to make an impact at Roma this season.

But Gilmar Rinaldi says: "If Adriano wants to return to play in Brazil for Corinthians, I will do everything to please him.

"When he wanted to return to Italy, I obeyed immediately and now he plays in Rome.

"Three weeks ago I was at the sports centre of Corinthians and Ronaldo asked me what I could do to bring Adriano to Brazil: I have simply answered that it all depends on the willingness of the player and now he wants to stay there.

"He has a contract with Roma until 2013 but do not ask me if the club counts on the boy, that is a question for them."
