Mum admits Inter Milan's Adriano considered suicide

Adriano's Mum has revealed the Inter Milan striker was suicidal during his darkest moments experienced in Italy last year.

The Brazilian has revived his career on-loan at Sao Paulo this season and Inter president Massimo Moratti has indicated he's ready to welcome back the centre-forward.

Adriano's Mum told Gazzetta dello Sport: "In Italy he was depressed, alone and under siege. He has had to handle many difficult moments, like the death of his father. My son has even thought of suicide."
