Figo: Adriano lacked dedication

Inter ambassador Luis Figo has hit out at former teammate Adriano, claiming he 'lacked professionalism' during his time at the club.

The Portuguese midfielder and one-time Ballon d'Or winner has criticised the Brazilian striker's five year spell at the Nerazzurri, as well as calling fellow forward Ronaldo 'the best of all'.

“Adriano is the classic example of how to destroy your talent,” he told Placar. “Talent is secondary though, if you do not balance it with dedication and professionalism – two things he completely lacked.

“Ronaldo on the other hand was an incredible talent. When he was not having physical problems he was unstoppable – the best of all in my opinion.”
