Vasco confirmed this Wednesday that Andrey will not be at the club. In a statement, the club informed that the football department and the steering wheel got together in a meeting and decided to go their separate ways. The player’s contract expires at the end of the month.

The decision, however, had been taken for some time.. With Vasco’s 17 years old – he arrived at the club’s futsal in 2004, at the age of 6 – Andrey understands that his cycle in São Januário has ended. He doesn’t hide from anyone that he is Vasco and his gratitude for the club that revealed it, but he is evaluating opportunities in other clubs in Serie A and in European football.

– It was a long journey, which taught me a lot and formed a large part of who I am today, as a man and a player. From Colégio Vasco da Gama to international trips for the professional team, I owe part of everything I am to this club. First I want to thank God for having blessed me with this opportunity, my wife and my family for always supporting me and the fans. I apologize if at some point I didn’t respond, but know that here there will always be a Vasco heart in the fans for better days. Thanks for everything – Andrey said in a farewell note.
