3.- Adriano

This is by far the saddest story out of the bunch, Adriano Leite was the real deal when he arrived at Internazionale Milano.

He really did have a level of skill that could rival Ronaldo Nazario’s but tragedy struck him too early.

Right at the peak of his talent at Inter, he received the sad news of his father’s passing and nothing was ever the same for him.

Adriano never really recovered from that blow, he went down a negative spiral from which he still hasn’t recovered.

We can’t really blame him for anything because none of us know how we would react if the same thing happened to us.

All we can do is feel sorry for the guy and keep wondering what could’ve been if tragedy hadn’t struck him so early.
