Adriano: "My father's death left a huge void in me. I was very depressed and drinking made me happy"

Adriano talks to Brazilian magazine R7 about a huge turning point in his career, this father’s death.

“Only I know how much I suffered. The death of my father left a huge void in me. I felt very lonely and isolated myself. It was the worst thing. I was alone, sad and depressed in Italy and that’s when I started drinking.

“Drinking made me happy, I did that every night. I drank everything: wine, whiskey, vodka, beer. A lot of beer. I didn’t stop drinking and so I had to leave Inter. I did not know how to hide it because I was drunk even at training. I was completely drunk. They took me to the infirmary to sleep and then club told the press that I had muscular problems.

“I realized that I was surrounded by bad people, friends who only took me to parties with women and alcohol, without thinking about anything. I went back to Brazil by giving up millions but because of that, I gained happiness.”
