Obviously he’s number one.
The truth is, for a few short seasons, Adriano Leite Ribeiro was – as the cliché goes – unplayable. At Parma and then, initially, back at Inter after his return to the San Siro, L'Imperatore was a lethal cocktail of brute and beauty.
It didn’t last though. The death of his father, his struggles with addiction and a physique that wore the signs of his party boy lifestyle combined to ensure the Brazilian’s star faded far too soon.
His legacy, however, lives on. And that’s largely thanks to Pro Evo. For anyone who played the game in the mid-to-late noughties, this guy will have been a very important part of your life.
