Adriano is one of the many players who could have gone much further in his career if they had not suffered personal misfortunes. Adriano was considered the successor of Ronaldo Nazario and was on his way to achieve it when the death of his father gave a giant turn to his career as a professional footballer.
After that misfortune, Adriano was never the same as before and his career took a nosedive. Adriano's career ended in soccer in the United States but not in MLS but in the fourth division in Miami FC. After retiring from football, serious problems began for Adriano since he fell into alcoholism and could not leave.
Already without a path to follow, Adriano went to live in the most humble neighborhoods of Brazil since he did not have money for another place. From collecting millions at Inter, Adriano went bankrupt and living in the most vulnerable neighborhoods in Brazil. That time of Adriano seems to have been left behind since he would have recovered from alcoholism and financial problems.
Today Adriano found his ground wire in Adidas. The former forward of the Brazilian team managed to be the ambassador of the brand and is concentrating on that. Luckily for him and his family, Adriano was able to get out of poverty and try to be successful again. The madness of Adriano's life was such that he went from being considered the next Ronaldo Nazario to being bankrupt and later going back to work in football.
