ROME - AS Roma have terminated the
contract of Brazilian striker Adriano, the Serie A club said in
a statement on Tuesday.
Adriano failed to turn up for training as scheduled after
spending weeks in Brazil recovering from a broken arm, creating
a problem for new coach Vincenzo Montella who took over last
The Brazilian's contract was due to run until June 2013 but
Roma said they had reached agreement with him to end it early.
Adriano broke his right arm and dislocated his shoulder
during Roma's Italian Cup win over city rivals Lazio in January.
The striker quit Inter Milan to return to Brazil two years
ago because of personal problems and Roma knew they were taking
a risk bringing him back to Serie A.
Former Roma striker Montella signed a contract to coach the
club until the end of the season after Claudio Ranieri quit in
February following the team's 4-3 loss at Genoa.
