Adriano aims to return to professional football

Former Brazil striker aims for comeback at 35 years of age

December 28, 2017 By Oscar Rojas
The former Inter Milan, Roma and Flamengo striker is already negotiating his return to professional football with the Brazilian side.

During the first decade of the 21st Century, Adriano terrorized defenses around the world with his powerful ball-striking skills and impressive physique. Unfortunately, problems with drugs and alcohol cut short his career, but now the player seems set to make a comeback, even though he's 35 years old.

Speaking after a friendly match played yesterday at Maracaná Stadium, in which he scored a goal and set up another one, "The Emperor" spoke about the possibility of a comeback, revealing that he has already started negotiating terms with his beloved Flamengo.

"We're still talking, let's see how things turn out. It's all going on fine. Not just the fans, but also my family are supporting me to make this comeback," Adriano stated.

The former Inter Milan player had his final stint as a professional player back in 2014, when he played only one game for Atlético Paranaense. Despite his problems with drugs and alcohol, the player is apparently ready to return, especially if he can manage to follow a strict diet.

"I'm still a bit out of shape, I'm trying to keep a decent weight. We'll work on it to return as soon as possible," Adriano added.

The striker took part of a friendly match hosted by legendary midfielder Zico. Former Brazil striker Romario also played the game, scoring a brace for his team. The match ended with a 5-5 score.
