Adriano is reportedly set to sue Corinthians after accusing the club of holding him hostage in a hotel earlier this year in a bid to help the bulky striker lose weight. Adriano was sacked by the club after missing 67 training sessions.
"They kept me in the hotel against my will," he said.
The player went on to explain: "I couldn't settle at that club, or in that city. It's a nice place, with many food options. But I'm from Rio – I'm used to the beach."
