Mum grateful to Inter Milan, Roma for supporting Adriano

Adriano's mother says the AS Roma striker is a new man. The former Inter Milan star went into a depression following the passing of his father.

But his Mum says the support of both Inter and Roma has lifted her son and turned him into a "new man".

"Now he's just like everyone else enjoying life with some friends," she said. "He never got over his father's death. And he was born in the favela and was friends with bad people who took advantage.

"But now he's a new man.

"We will always be grateful to (Inter president) Massimo Moratti, he treated him like a son.

"Inter gave us money, fame and affection. But Roma has offered a new opportunity to Adriano. He will not fail."
