Cicinho reveals drink problem
Cicinho has revealed that he 'smoked and drunk' while he was dropped from Roma's first team squad last season.
The 31-year-old, who became a free agent at the end of last season, struggled to make an impact at the Olimpico and often failed to even make it on the bench.
''I went to the Trigoria ground and had the training session, but I knew I wasn't going to play on Sunday,'' Cicinho told Esporte Fantastico.
''So when I went home, I smoked and got drunk. I had cases of beer and other alcohol at home, drinking either by myself or with false friends.
''I liked going out clubbing, would drink and could not stop myself. I didn’t do drugs, but only because of the anti-doping tests, otherwise I would have done that too.
''Now my objective is to continue playing football, possibly in Europe, where my wife and I would like to remain.''
Earlier this month, Cicinho admitted that his agent was in advanced talks with a club from the south of Brazil over a possible transfer. Reports have suggested that Grêmio are interested in signing the former Real Madrid player.
