Do you have a feeling that we are not being told the whole story here? It’s fairly odd in the first place for Adriano to be ‘fooling around’ with your bodyguard’s gun. Who was this woman? She is clearly very lucky to only have sustained a fairly minor injury following this incident with the seemingly unstable Brazilian striker.
