Adriano has undone much of this term's good work by turning up to training in poor condition on Monday and arriving late this morning.
As expected, no-nonsense tactician Mourinho has axed the Brazilian hitman from his squad for tomorrow's trip to Florence.
“Adriano trained from nine to 10 and I don't want to comment any further,” the Special One said. “I don't let my children do whatever they want and so why should I let my players get away with anything?
“That's the way I am and I won't change. The players know that - someone forgot that but it isn't a problem.
“We have a relationship of empathy, which means honesty and sincerity and not always kisses.”
