RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- Corinthians coach Tite announced on Friday that striker Adriano is not fit for the upconming debut in the 2012 Sao Paulo state championship.

After missing four team practices, Adriano was given a warning and a fine from the club. The player has promised that he would not miss another practice without permission and said that he intends on finishing out his contract with Corinthians through to June, 2012.

However, the missed practices have not helped Adriano's physical conditioning. Tite said that he has handed the player over to physical trainer Fabio Mahseredjian and Bruno Mazziotti. The coach added that he will wait as long as needed until the professionals fine-tunes him.
