In short

Former Corinthians striker Adriano wants to take legal action against the Sao Paulo club after he claims he was held prisoner during a week-long programme to boost his fitness.

"I will take (legal) action (against Corinthians)," Adriano said. "I was in prison for one week. At no time did I agree to stay there. It was a punishment. I felt so humiliated.

"I could not identify with the city. It's a nice place, with many food options." Which seems to have been his major downfall.
