MILAN - AS Roma striker Adriano won
Italy's infamous Golden Bin award for a third time on Monday
after again being voted Serie A's worst player by fans.
The burly Brazilian, given the Rai Radio 2 prize by
listeners in 2006 and 2007 while playing for Inter Milan,
returned to Italy with Roma at the start of the season after a
stint at Brazil's Flamengo but has made only three appearances.
Injury and coach Claudio Ranieri's preference for Francesco
Totti, Marco Borriello and Mirko Vucinic mean opportunities have
been limited for the 28-year-old, with media reports already
linking him with a January move away.
Adriano has battled alcohol and personal problems in the
past but excitedly joined cash-strapped Roma in June only for
the up-for-sale club to loan Borriello from AC Milan two months
Rai said in a statement that Adriano received almost double
the votes of inconsistent Juventus and Italy forward Amauri in
second while Milan's Brazilian Ronaldinho was third having
mainly warmed the bench of late.
Last year Juve's Brazil midfielder Felipe Melo won the
Golden Bin, a parody on the Golden Ball (Ballon D'Or) award
given to the world's best football player.
