Adriano determined to rediscover form with Inter

RIO DE JANEIRO, July 23 (Reuters) - Brazil striker Adriano said on Sunday he was staying at his Italian club Inter Milan.

Adriano had an unhappy season with Inter last year and was also below par for Brazil in the World Cup, despite scoring two goals.

'I'm not leaving Inter Milan but I'm happy to hear that other teams want to sign me,' he told reporters.

'The Inter Milan fans like me a lot and so does the club president. That's why I'm at Inter today.'

He added he was determined to get back to his best.

'When the Italian championship starts, I want to go back to being the Adriano the fans knew before -- The Emperor,' he said.

Adriano, who imposed a media silence during the part of the World Cup, also commented on his omission from the starting line-up for Brazil's quarter-final against France. Brazil lost the game 1-0.

'Of course, I wanted to play, no doubt,' he said. 'It was sad because I didn't have the chance to play France but I respect the coach's decision.'
