Internazionale striker Adriano has apologised to the club’s supporters for his poor run of form.

The Brazilian has not been at his best in recent months and he atttributes his indifferent form to personal issues outside of football.

“I want to say sorry to the supporters of Inter because I am not having a good time,” he admitted. “I know I can give much more for the team.

“I have had many problems in my life and I am not smiling or happy.

“I am a very lucky person because I still have a chance of playing at Inter.

“I expect to score goals soon and make the supporters of Inter happy.

“We are at a very important stage of the season, we want to finish second in Serie A and go as far as possible in the Italian Cup and the Champions League.”
