Flamengo management are disappointed after Adriano went AWOL again.

L'Imperatore made a sensational start to his Flamengo career when netting in a 2-1 win over Atletico Paranaense on Sunday night.

But he's gone missing from training and coach Cuca said: "His absence was not planned.

"We will see later on, when he arrives, what he has to say for himself. Something must've happened."
