Old Habits Die Hard

Roma’s new Brazilian striker Adriano has once again exhibited actions that cost him dearly while his was with Italian champions Inter Milan. Adriano has not yet reported for Roma’s pre-season training camp in spite of agreeing to the club’s terms and conditions.

This time however, Adriano has a good reason for his actions. Apparently, he could not get his son’s paperwork in order by the time he was due to leave for Rome and this eventually forced him to push back his departure for Italy by one day.

Adraino was however quick to inform the club of his little problem. Adriano has been in fantastic form for his former Brazilian club Flamengo and despite him gaining extra weight, the striker is still considered as lethal as ever. In light of this, the Giallorosso have come up with a special training programme for Adriano to help him get back in shape.

This is exactly what Ronaldinho did before joining Milan back in 2008. Out of shape and favour with Barcelona, Dinho returned to Brazil and enlisted the services of a personal trainer to help him get back to form. Putting his personal problems behind him, Adriano will be looking to replicate his goal scoring form with Roma.

Meanwhile, as Roma await the arrival of their star player, News has broken out that the club’s owners-the Sensi family, are in talks to hand over ownership to Unicredit. With a massive debt of 325 million Euros, Rosella Sensi, Roma’s chief executive is looking to avoid court battles and save her other businesses from collapsing.

Rosella has run the club since 2008 after the passing of her father.
