Adriano Neves Pereira (born 24 May 1979 in Capão da Canoa, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil), commonly known as Adriano Chuva, is a Brazilian footballer who currently plays for Atlético Sorocaba, primarily as a striker.
A tall, powerful forward, he is known for his pace, tactical awareness, speed, dribbling and accurate shooting.
Chuva is perhaps best described as a journeyman, namely because he has turned out for over twelve different clubs since he started his professional career with Juventude in 1997. However, despite his inability to settle, he has nevertheless proved himself to be a prolific goal-scorer wherever he has happened to play.
Born Adriano Neves Pereira he was given his nickname, Chuva, at a young age by his mother Simone in deference to a family friend of the same name whom she thought Adriano resembled.
Farewell, CHUVA, forever known as "The Beast"
