“He had some setbacks yesterday and was here today, but a professional needs to live a healthy lifestyle and above all train well. All the time. I don’t think Adriano is living in hardship, reading the interviews he has given. I repeat, he just needs to live the life of an athlete. If I do not consider him to be in good shape to play, then I do not leave him out because of spite. I don’t see him doing well at the moment, otherwise he would play. I hope now he understands and can do something different.”
-Roberto Mancini, on Adriano's current status at Inter Milan after the Brazilian skipped out on training yesterday.
