Soccer Star Quits Because of a Break-Up

The no-longer happy couple in better times

Playing for Inter in the Italian Serie A soccer league would be a dream come true for millions of people; making millions of dollars and having thousands of fans adore you are also the dreams of many people. For Adriano, a Brazilian striker on Inter, those things are apparently not enough. Supposed to return to Italy after the international break, Adriano decided to stay in Brazil with his family. During a press conference explaining his decision, he had this to say: “Right now I am only thinking about my health. This is my reasoning behind why I want to stop playing football, at least temporarily anyway. I have lost the passion to play. I am prepared to give up the money of my salary if need be.”

The source of his angst? Adriano and his girlfriend recently broke up. Now, a bad break up is one thing, but c’mon man, you can’t give up your entire life because you’re jonesed out right now. You’re an international celebrity, you’re young, you’re rich, I guarantee there will be lots of other hot chicks out there willing to get down with you and at least ONE of them will be totally cool and someone you like

Joanna Machado, Adriano’s ex told the newspaper O Dia, “Adriano is completely lost and he needs help…I no longer have the strength to take care of him. I have always looked [after] him, but he has never shown me any respect. He has never done anything for me.”

See, you’re better off without her dude! Unfortunately, Adriano, who has a reputation for petulance and hard-partying doesn’t see it that way and has reportedly been hanging out with unsavory characters since his return to Brazil. Meanwhile, Inter, and his big contract are awaiting him in Italy…
