Olympique Lyonnais and Henrique (30) have confirmed that they will part ways at the end of the month. The Brazilian full-back leaves OL after three years at the club.

Henrique, brought to the club by his “idol” Juninho, back in 2021, went on to play 45 times for the club. He arrived on a free transfer from Vasco da Gama and during his time at the Groupama Stadium, he was used mainly as a back-up option at left-back. That was certainly the case last season when he provided cover for Argentina international and World Champion Nicolás Tagliafico. Henrique, as a result, was restricted to just 13 appearances in all competitions last season.

His departure therefore comes as no surprise, as his contract with OL was reaching its expiry. The Brazilian confirmed his departure in an Instagram story on Wednesday evening, in which he thanked the club’s fans. OL then confirmed the news, thanking Henrique for his service to the club.
