The Brazilian has struggled for form and fitness for the past two seasons and has also admitted to drinking heavily in a bid to forget his on-field troubles, but made his first appearance of the season in a 2-0 win against Catania on Sunday.
Zanetti told www.inter.it: "Adriano tried to help the team and had a few chances to score but unfortunately he didn´t. He definitely deserved to score but he has got it into his head that he can still be very important for the team, and this means a lot for all of us."
