Adriano ordered to go on a diet, ‘locked’ at hotel
AP, Wednesday 8 Feb 2012
Corinthians says it is keeping Adriano at the team’s hotel and is ordering him to go on a strict diet to try to get the former Brazil star in shape again

The team says Adriano will have to stay inside the hotel at the team’s headquarters at least through the weekend, eating only what doctors give him and practicing three times a day.

Corinthians physical trainer Fabio Mahseredjian says the team “locked” Adriano in because he won’t improve his condition unless he stops eating excessively.

Adriano has played sparingly since recovering from surgery on his Achilles tendon last year and is in danger of not being included in the squad which will play in the Copa Libertadores.
