Adriano: “The goal for Madrid is that it was at 170 km / h”

first_imgHis mother lied to enroll him in Flamengo“I was already playing at Flamengo, even though I should really be in youth. I remember long and hard days, with my mother, Rosilda, in the hospital. I was at home with Grandma Wanda. I tried to be useful and occasionally I used to put myself on the street corner to polish shoes for money. I went to school and to train. The day my father, Almir, returned home he was one of the happiest of all my life. Do you know my shooting? Is it very powerful? I trained him there as a child. I broke doors and various objects. My mother was desperate. That is why she took me to the Flamengo. However, we had to pay the fees and Dad knew we had no money. My mother However, he did not want to deny me that dream and said that our aunt would help us pay the tuition. A lie for a good purpose. He covered himself with extra work and started selling sweets on the street. It is difficult to be born and grow up in a favela and imagine a bright future. It’s also difficult to sun But my mother, father and grandparents have always shown me the positive side. They allowed me to focus on soccer. “ Inter helped him when his father died“My father’s death left an insurmountable void in my life. It is curious that a city like Switzerland gave me back some light in some terrible days. I returned to Europe and played Basel-Inter. You cannot imagine my state of mind. I win a ball, I’m leaving two men, they try to knock me down, I even pass the goalkeeper and shoot to the right. I put all the energy I had to dedicate that goal to my father and I still remember the hugs from my teammates. Inter was close to me in the most difficult moments of my life. Moratti was a father to me. Zanetti and the others too. I am very grateful and I will always carry that with me. “The rivalry with Milan“Emperor. At first I didn’t think they were mad at me when they called me that. It was nice to gradually discover the affection of all the people at Inter. In Milan I always felt at home. Immediately I became a true Inter player. My 3-2 in the derby in the last minute supports it. My last goal with Inter was in the derby, of course. “ The Inter Milan website is taking out letters written by personalities of the club during the quarantine to entertain their fans and in this case it has been the turn of one of the idols of recent years: Adriano. The Brazilian player had everything to be one of the best in the world, but the reign of ‘Emperor’ It was short-lived and his lifestyle made soccer gradually lose a player with great talent. Adriano tells in his letter anecdotes about his beginnings, about the Real Madrid, on the love that the Italian club gave him after the death of his father and on his rivalry with the Milan.center_img His most beautiful memory, that of the goal against Real Madrid“The beginning was a floor, and even today, among a thousand games and moments, the most beautiful memory, the one that matters most to me, was my trip to Madrid. I left at the Bernabéu on August 14, 2001 wearing the Inter shirt and Real Madrid in front. That could have been enough. And instead, I went out onto the field without thinking about anything, as if I were playing on the Vila Cruzeiro dirt course. Dribbles, pipes … I was successful in everything. It is missing and on the bench I was invited to throw it. Do you remember that I trained the shot at home and that my mother went crazy? Here I showed it to the world. They say it was 170 kilometers per hour (something that does not seem likely, since the Record Guinness is owned by a Spaniard who shot at 129 km / h in 2001). “Adriano’s free-kick goal, with Inter Milan, against Real Madrid.last_img read more
