Caio Henrique turns 23 and will try to convince Cholo

The Brazilian tries to make a place for himself at Atlético after the club canceled his transfer to Gremio. Manu Sánchez performed very well after the break.


Atlético will have two left backs from the beginning of next season. The only position that was not doubled and that only had a Renan Lodi who since his arrival has not stopped growing, becoming the fourth most valuable player in the world in that position (50 million), but who needs competition beyond the patches that Saúl and Mario Hermoso supposed at the beginning of the course.

But the rojiblanco club knows that they have the remedy at home. Well with Manu Sánchez, who at 19 years of age has done a great job during the break, starting in three of the eleven matches that served for Simeone to qualify for the next Champions League or with Caio Henrique. The Brazilian was on loan at the Gremio until the end of the year, but Atlético decided to break the loan to have him in Madrid, where he hopes to earn a place in the team next season.

Started out of the rojiblanca quarry in 2018, Caio Henrique is celebrating today. He turns 23 and next week he will put himself under the command of Simeone after undergoing a quarantine process after arriving from Brazil and exercising alone, since he has not been competing since March 13, before the global coronavirus pandemic stop the competition. Of course, you can not be registered to play the present Champions that will end in Lisbon. With the Spanish passport in hand, he no longer has the handicap of occupying a post as a non-EU member and he opposes a post in the mattress defense next year.

Caio Henrique has been in Madrid since July 1, when he attended AS just landed, noting that Atleti's call "is a great joy because I have worked a lot, hard, very hard, in Brazil for two years. I had to have minutes, I had them, I did a good job and for us, those of us who have a contract with the club, to call us is a great joy. " The player is clear that to stay "I have to train very hard to make a place for myself in the squad. I was away for two years and it is a great joy to return to this city, to this club that has given me the opportunity to debut (against the Guijuelo, in the Cup, in 2016) in the first team. It is a very special moment ".

Despite the fact that his arrival at Atleti B occurred as a midfielder with a great future, from before leaving the club he adapted to the left back, until he exploded on his loan at Fluminense. Caio Henrique established himself as the starting full-back for Brazil to qualify for the Olympics (Lodi did not attend the appointment because he was concentrated with Atlético) and stands out for his ability to get the ball played from the position and join in attack in a very intelligent. Atlético have three left wingers with a great future, with Lodi as indisputable but with Caio and Manu knocking on the doors of the first team. Simeone will have to decide who he stays with next season, aware that he has a lot of talent in his ranks.
