Inter Milan defender Ivan Cordoba has revealed he's staying in touch with teammate Adriano as he undergoes treatment for depression in Sao Paulo.

"We talk a lot and I think that we all have tried to help him," said Cordoba. "And we'll try to do it again, until he says he's fine. He can always find people to count on, people he can rely on.

"Now that he has gone away, it was agreed not to lose contact with him."
