Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho has laughed off reports linking Adriano with a loan move to Flamengo.

"What on earth would Adriano do at Flamengo? You go to Brazil for a vacation, nothing more," smiled Mourinho.

"I think Adriano can recover his fitness and certainly play in the upcoming games. He worked with [fitness coach] Bisciotti today, because he hadn't worked with the team for a long time and that's not easy.

"Tomorrow he will again do individual work and then we'll see when he will be ready for full training."
