Henrique has decided to part ways with Napoli and return to his country Brazil to play for Fluminense. The news of his departure was put on the Twitter profile of Napoli yesterday.
The veteran centre half, who had come to Napoli at the start of 2014, had not been in the plans of the boss Maurizio Sarri of late, and wwas being tipped to move on by the Casino-X website.
Henrique had played well when he had joined Napoli first up and his form had even earned him a national recall for the World Cup, but luck didn’t favour him thereafter. Although an outside to make the team, he became one of the favourites to make the squad on the online casinospielen website, and was soon on his was back to take part in a World Cup in his homeland!
He didn’t get an opportunity to feature in the star studded Brazilian line up in World Cup and spent the whole tournament on the bench and then, when he rejoined Napoli for the 2014-15 Season; he seemed to have lost his form.
He couldn’t quite play the same way he had played on his arrival and pretty soon lost his place in the side. In the ongoing season, he had not played even one game for Napoli before he quit. In total, Henrique played 38 games for Napoli and scored two goals.
He is a very good addition to the Fluminense‘s defence which was at its worst the previous year. The number of goals that was scored against Fluminense in the Brazilian League in 2015 was extraordinary - more than one goal per game on average which is enough to suggest how spineless the defence was.
Fluminense, at one stage, was on the verge of demotion to second tier, but, they somehow avoided it. However, they still finished in the bottom half in the standings. Henrique would want to provide some sting to Fluminense’s defence and help them bounce back the coming season.
Napoli is reported to have got 2 million Euros as transfer fee for Henrique.
