Adriano rejoins squad
Saturday 22 November 2008
Adriano will be in Internazionale's squad for today's big match against Juventus after missing last week's 2-0 win at Palermo because of influenza and being dropped by their Jose Mourinho for the four previous games because of indiscipline.
The striker had warned that he would leave the Serie A champions if he did not get regular action after scoring in Brazil's 6-2 win over Portugal on Wednesday. "All the players who are available will be called up," Mourinho said yesterday. "I'm in absolute agreement with what he [Adriano] said. Every footballer always wants to play and if he does not he has to think about changing." The league leaders will be without suspended defender Ivan Cordoba for the showdown.
Juve coach Claudio Ranieri has ended speculation that Gianluigi Buffon is on his way to Manchester City after Italian media reported the Premier League club have prepared a €75m (£63.4m) bid for the Italy keeper, who is expected to be out until January with a leg injury.
