Roma coach Ranieri confident Adriano will not go off rails

Roma coach Claudio Ranieri is confident Adriano will not let anyone down next season.

The Flamengo striker is joining Roma on a free transfer after lengthy talks with Roma sports director Daniele Prade.

Ranieri said: "I am pleased with the arrival of Adriano. The operation was conducted by Prade: it was his idea, it his credit for having closed the deal. Roma can help Adriano to regenerate."

On Adriano's reputation for enjoying the nightlife, Ranieri added: "I always control my players on the field and allow them total freedom outside the camp. I never want to ring up players and find them in bars at night.

"Adriano is 28 years old and he can handle his personal life."
