The former Inter Milan forward is ready to return to Serie A next season.
â€śI am happy to return to Italy, as I needed something to cancel out the bad times here and I feel I owe it to the Italian people. Theyâ€™ve always treated me kindly and I left in unfortunate circumstances,â€ť explained lâ€™Imperatore in a Press conference.
â€śAfter learning so much in my time at Flamengo, I feel that I can make it. Itâ€™s a decision I have thought about long and hard, so I am happy to come back to the city of Emperors.
â€śAmong the reasons I chose Roma, I found pride was more important than money. I am enthusiastic about their plans and theyâ€™ve been after me for six months.â€ť
Although the transfer has not been finalised, Adriano is confident he will be wearing the Giallorossi jersey within a couple of weeks.
â€śI am 90 per cent a Roma player and will speak to President Rosella Sensi on June 6 to complete the move.
â€śI had no problems with Flamengo and leave here amicably. I was very happy, but today I feel it important to come back to Italy. I donâ€™t want to repeat some of the things that happened to me.
