L’Imperatore returns to Inter
Tuesday 17 June, 2008

Inter hitman Adriano has returned to San Siro after his loan spell at Brazilian side Sao Paulo came to an end ahead of schedule.

L’Imperatore was sent to Brazil to recover from a tough period of psychological and physical problems and he rediscovered his coring touch with the Tricolor Paulista.

With Roberto Mancini gone, Adri has the chance to make a fresh start with the Nerazzurri’s new Coach Jose Mourinho and Sao Paulo have decided that he should leave a month early to give them a chance to replace him.

“We have a balanced squad and it was better for Adriano to go back, given that we won’t be able to count on him for the rest of the campaign,” Sao Paulo sporting director Carlos Augusto de Barros e Silva explained.

Adriano will return to Milan to introduce himself to the new tactician ahead of Inter’s first pre-season meeting in July.
