Brazil's Sao Paulo fines Adriano for indiscipline

Brazil's Sao Paulo fines Adriano for indiscipline

Sao Paulo will fine striker Adriano for indiscipline and could levy heavier penalties following a traffic accident and other incidents involving the Inter Milan striker.
Adriano, on loan from Inter until June, will be fined 40 percent of his salary for arriving late for practice and abandoning physical therapy without authorization, the club said on its Web site on Friday.
Sao Paulo president Juvenal Juvencio will meet with Adriano on Saturday "to discuss the athlete's future," the club said.
Adriano, who joined Sao Paulo last December, has been under fire for his lack of scoring and failure to obey club rules.
On Friday, a Porsche registered to him was involved in an accident before dawn in downtown Sao Paulo, the Globo TV network reported. Adriano was not in the car, but two women passengers were injured and treated at a local hospital, Globo said on its Web site.
In December, Adriano was driving in Rio de Janeiro and lost control of his Audi, bouncing off the curb and hitting three cars. No one was reported injured.
Sao Paulo vice president Carlos Augusto de Barros e Silva said the club could discuss voiding Adriano's contract.
"The possibility exists," he said in an interview on the UOL Esporte Web site. "We haven't decided yet and no hypothesis is discarded ... We don't like what happened."
Adriano has played 10 games for Sao Paulo and scored four goals in the Sao Paulo state soccer championship. His contract expires on June 30.
