Juve let injury-ravaged Andrade leave

April 8, 2009

Juventus have released centre back Jorge Andrade from his contract after the Portugal international suffered two serious knee injuries in two years.

The 30-year-old, signed for about 10 million euros ($13.2 million) from Deportivo La Coruna in 2007, missed almost all of last season and has not played this term following a third operation.

Juve said last year they feared he would never be fit enough to cope with the demands of professional football.
