The Brazilian defender said that he’s “at his best” and that the team must win their remaining matches to keep their title hopes alive.
The Brazilian also recognised he’s going through his “best moment this season” on an individual level: “I’m currently going through my best moment this season. I’ve lost weight and I feel much better. Now it’s time to take care of myself and play the remaining matches.” It’s worth noting that Adriano, like all the other first-team players, is on an individual training regiment in order to maximise performance in key parts of the season, part of that regiment requires players to lose weight.
Adriano also had words of praise for his teammate Martín Montoya, who came on for Dani Alves in the match against Zaragoza: “I’ve always really liked Montoya, ever since he did his first preseason with the team. I think he brings a lot to the team. It was noticeable at La Romareda, because the team stayed at the same level when Alves was subbed out.” (via FCBarcelona.cat)
