Adriano has been one of the players most used by Tata Martino at the start of this campaign – having started the last seven games and already bagged two goals - and in an exclusive interview  with BarçaTV and fcbarcelona.cat I want to keep on working hard so that the boss knows he can count on me he explained, “I’m really enjoying things right now, physically, I am right at my best. I want to keep on working hard so that the boss knows he can count on me”.

After coming on for the injured Jordi Alba after a quarter of an hour of the game against Seville, Adriano has put in six straight starts at left back and he admitted: “Jordi’s injury has given me the opportunity to get a run in the first team” and with Alba picking up another injury in training on Thursday, it looks as if the Brazilian could be in for an extended run.

I feel I’ve left all that behind me now and I with the confidence that gives me, I really feel god at the moment”.

Adriano also stressed that: “on the pitch I am just focussed on playing and I’m not worrying about if I feel a twinge here or there, or if I can get through the game. That has really taken a big effort”.
