The Flamengo ace admits he had problems in Italy, but insists he has his drinking under control.
"I'm not an alcoholic. It is true that I drink, but only two or three times a week," said Adriano.
"In Italy, I did have a serious problem, there I drank all the time. At that stage my weight was out of control at Inter, I was bigger with decreased self-esteem. It was a stage where everything came together after the death of my father and I went into a deep depression."
