Henrique Dourado arrives at BH to close with Cruzeiro – Rádio Itatiaia

In advanced negotiations with Cruzeiro, striker Henrique Dorado, 33, is expected to play at Toca da Raposa in the next few hours (7). The information has been provided by General Electric and confirmed it Itatia.

Free on the market after playing for Henan Songshan, from China, for four seasons, the ‘Reaper’ could be the third striker in the squad, as coach Pippa has Gilberto and Matheus Dafoe as options for the sector.

Last year, Dorado scored five goals and provided four assists in 13 matches in Asian football.

Already this season, Henrique Dourado has used the structures of Cianorte, in the interior of Paraná, to rehydrate himself physically. The striker has not been on the field since August last year, when he was suspended in Chinese football for pushing a referee during a local league match.

Short trip to Cruzeiro

With passes through Flamengo and Palmeiras, Dorado wore the heavenly jersey eight years ago, under the commands of Marcelo Oliveira and Vanderlei Luxemburgo.

Signed on loan on 7 February, Henrik scored two goals in 12 appearances for Cruzeiro. Without much shine, he was a starter in six matches and a substitute in another six, after they finished the League in a friendly fashion on 16 July.
