Adriano will not return to Inter on Monday

Adriano will not return to Italy on Monday as he intends to 'watch the Flamengo-Fluminense derby' says his agent.

Reports have suggested the Brazilian striker, who was expected to return to Italy earlier this week, has been kidnapped, but agent Gilmar Rinaldi insists he is ok.

“No, he won’t be coming back to Italy tomorrow,” explained Rinaldi on Globo TV.

“These people are crazy, absolutely none of that is true. Adriano is at his home in Rio with his family and will go to see some local games.

“In particular he wants to be there for the Flamengo-Fluminense derby. I even heard stories that I was in Rio right now in a police station waiting for Adriano to be interrogated, but I’m in San Paolo!”
