Flamengo star Adriano grateful to Inter Milan boss Mourinho for support

Flamengo star Adriano is grateful to Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho over the way he tried to convince his board to keep hold of the Brazilian last year.

Adriano said: "I thought I had overcome my problems, but I returned to being like I was before only without anyone on which I could rely upon so I started to drink again. I came back for Mourinho but it wasn't sufficient. I started all over again with the parties, the women and the alcohol.

"The club was no longer willing to accept the situation and it stopped insisting upon my recovery. I am sorry for Mourinho who argued with some directors in an attempt to convince them to deal with me."
