Caio Henrique, a complete left-sided player

Caio Henrique, a complete left-sided player
A look back on the career of the new AS Monaco recruit, Caio Henrique, who has signed for five seasons with the Red and Whites.

Look, the left flank is all yours“, said Paul Mitchell, AS Monaco’s Sporting Director, to Caio Henrique the day of his arrival. Trained as a left-sided midfielder, the Brazilian is versatile: he can play at fullback, in midfield or even in attack — the native of Santos can comfortably play several positions on the left flank even if he has mostly played as a fullback during his professional career.

Santos, is a veritable garden of football, where the ex-AS Monaco player Nenê was trained, for example. And it’s where Caio Henrique started, at the age of 10. It was there that the 1.79m player took his first steps on the training pitch, before moving, 8 years later, to Europe, and Atletico Madrid. He played 69  minutes of a Copa del Rey match with the Rojiblancos on November 30, 2016, then no longer played that season even if he was in the squad 3 times in February and March 2017, including once for one Champions League match.

Three successive loans in Brazil

The following season, Caio Henrique spent most of the time with the reserve team of Atletico Madrid, but only played 5 games. Because of this lack of playing time, the left-footed player then left the Spanish capital for three loan spells in Brazil. The first was in Parana where he delivered 3 assists in 27 matches, the second to Fluminense where he plays 43 matches including 8 in the Copa Sudamericana (1 goal and 3 assists) and finally the third was to Gremio FC where he participated in 2 matches of the Copa Libertadores.

With nearly 80 professional matches and 20 caps with the Brazil U20 and U23 sides, Caio Henrique said he was “very happy to join AS Monaco.”

AS Monaco welcome him and wish him all the best in Red and White.
