Axe Falls On Basso

Axe Falls On Basso

City's Brazilian keeper Adriano Basso has sensationally been released from the final six months of his contract.

Basso has made no secret of his desire to remain at Ashton Gate despite off the field shananigan's undermining his role during the last 18 months at the club.

In an official statement released to the media, a pragmatic Basso said: "Life, it's all about making somebody's life better, adding new values, having a purpose and knowing how to achieve it.

"God has given a purpose to my life. So, when I came to Bristol City I came to fulfill this purpose, that is: make a difference, do something better, add value to the club, to the players and to the supporters, but this was only possible because somebody believed in me (Peter Johnson).

"So, I'm very grateful to the manager Gary Johnson and assistant manager Keith Millen who gave me the opportunity to show who I am as a player and as a person bringing the best out of people, making them 'ALWAYS BELIEVE' that they can achieve something good, that they can fulfill their dreams and ambitions.

"Specially also I'd like to show my gratitude to the chairman Steve Lansdown, to the President of the club Marina Dolman, to my goalkeeping coach Stuart Naylor and all the players that always, behind the scenes, were supporting me, adding special values to my life.

"Ooooooo Bassoooo', 'Ooooooo Bassoooooo' definitely will follow me everywhere I go. To the supporters, I'd like to say: 'I'm tremendously blessed for being supported by all of you all these years. Thank you for your special way to express love, care and support.

"I wish that God may give to this club wisdom to achieve their ambition. GOD bless you Adriano Basso!"


Basso made 182 appearances in five years for the City and should be welcomed back as a hero should he return to BS3. After all, his agent advised him to sign a new deal at the Gate which would have been a formality if not for reasons being kept behind supporters backs.

Manager Gary Johnson refused to comment, which speaks volumes quite frankly.

Adriano, from all the genuine City fans, may we take this opportunity to thank you for your service and wish you well in your future ventures.

Things certainly aren't good at the moment. We're in serious trouble and this just adds to it. The way he was treated by Johnson was nothing shy of a disgrace.
