Adriano told to lose weight

16 January 2009 07:07
Internazionale coach Jose Mourinho has ordered troubled striker Adriano to lose weight if he is serious about staying with the Italian champions. The controversial Brazilian returned to the first-team fold after his latest fall-out with Mourinho in Tuesday's 3-1 Coppa Italia win over Genoa in which he scored. But Mourinho has warned the South American that he must shed some additional kilos if he wants to stay at the San Siro. "Recently he has been training consistently and not arriving late," said the Portuguese coach. "It's clear that he is three or four kilos overweight and he lacks some explosiveness and confidence, but if he keeps working as he has been then that's okay with me."
