Rio de Janeiro, March 10 (IANS) Despite Adriano’s achievement of losing 100 kilos, Corinthians coach Tite demonstrated his dissatisfaction with the striker, barring him from upcoming matches.

According to Tite, Adriano did not practice hard enough during the week, infuriating the coach. The coach declared Friday that Adriano will be excluded from the team’s next two matches and will continue his exclusive physical conditioning exercises, reported Xinhua.

Adriano shared his positive results of dropping weight and stated his optimism in travelling to play against Mexico’s Cruz Azul March 14 in the Libertadores Cup.

However, Tite made it clear that the polemic striker will stay in Brazil and will also sit out of the match against Guarani March 10 in the Sao Paulo state championship.

Tite described Adriano’s last week of practice as lacking in energy and intensity, calling his performance inferior to that of his teammates.

Adriano will now look to make his debut in the 2012 Libertadores Cup March 21 in the return leg against Cruz Azul.
