Still, after that, he tried to stay strong. In the game, he was scoring goals as usual and dedicating all his goals in the memory of his father. But he was evident that he turning more aggressive. The next season he seemed like lost for motivation in football, battling with depression and he made a new friend with alcohol.

With time Adriano became more like an Alcoholic than a professional footballer. Late-night partying and excessive drinking resulted in missing training game, gaining extra weight in addition to his huge physic. In the game also his performance started to downgrade. In 2009 Inter let him go due to lack of work ethic.
