Adriano returns to Inter in determined mood

Brazilian striker Adriano is determined to reclaim his place in the Internazionale team after returning to Italy.

Adriano arrived in Milan on Wednesday to report for pre-season training with Inter, and insisted he is ready to return to his old form after a six-month loan spell with Sao Paulo in his homeland.

'I am delighted to be back in this group where I hope to remain,' said Adriano.

'I know that (coach Jose) Mourinho likes my style of play and this is important. I know I will have to work hard in order to find a place in the team.'

Adriano returned to Brazil after suffering a collapse of form and confidence, but the 26-year-old insists his problems are now in the past.

'I managed to come out of a difficult situation at Sao Paulo,' he said.

'To have played there has helped me so much and I hope to do well with Inter.'

The 26-year-old will face tough competition for a starting place with Julio Cruz, David Suazo and Mario Balotelli looking to partner Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Mourinho's attacking line.
