Adriano Hits Back At Flamengo Coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo

Adriano disappointed with Luxemburgo's recent comments...
Current free agent Adriano has hit back at Flamengo coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo after the tactician revealed that the club were not interested in taking the striker back.

The 29-year-old's second tour of duty in Italy came to an abrupt end when his contract at Roma was rescinded amidst reports of late night antics and a lack of discipline.

'The Emperor' has been linked with a return to the Rubro-Negro but the 58-year-old tactician ruled out a move and Adriano was disheartened by his former coach's comments.

"I was disappointed [with how Luxemburgo handled the situation]. Vanderlei has always praised me, saying that I was a player he would always want in his squad. Now, I get here and hear him talking about these things," he he told Globoesporte.

"Maybe it's a misunderstanding, maybe he has his problem. I understand everybody, I'm not here to judge anyone, that’s not who I am.

"I want to help, be a part of the squad and his work. I'm waiting, but there's a limit," he concluded.

Adriano failed to score for Roma and made just five league appearances for the club during his seven-month stint in the Italian capital.
