Adriano returns to Rome

Adriano has finally returned to Rome following a period of recuperation in Rio de Janeiro.

The Brazilian striker broke his arm against Lazio last month and has been out of action ever since.

Roma general manager Gian Paolo Montali had grown angry with Adriano for not returning sooner.

He felt the 28-year-old should have shown more concern for the club after Claudio Ranieri's resignation and the appointment of Vincenzo Montella.

Sky Italia claims he touched down at Fiumicino this afternoon following a stop-over in Lisbon.

His arm was still in a sling and it remains to be seen when he will be fit to play again.
