The right-back said goodbye to América on social media
Right-back Patric left América after a season and a half. The player arrived at the Minas Gerais team in July 2021, immediately became a starter on the team, last season there were 24 games, he contributed to the Brazilian Championship campaign, which took the team to the Libertadores of America for the first time in its history, a striking fact.
In 2022, Patric was even a starter at first, but lost his spot to Raúl Cáceres throughout the year. In all, the defender was present in fifty games, one goal and four assists. He was second on the team in terms of goal passes, alongside Alê, and behind Juninho, who made seven passes in all during the season.
After Patric’s departure, América will bet on youth to make up for his absence. The 19-year-old right-back Arthur should win the opportunity with Vagner Mancini in 2023. Cáceres, in turn, is still undecided by the club, the Paraguayan also has a bond only until December 31 of this year. On social media, Patric said goodbye to the club.
“Difficult, but life is very fast. I remember when I received the invitation to come to América, and the team was in 18th place in the Brazilian Championship, and I had no doubt. I knew that there I would find a family. -Libertadores. But when I arrived, I said that América would go to Sudamericana, and many called me crazy. I had a vision of the heavens, and we were surprised with a Pre-Libertadores. I’m sure my name will go down in history. Happy, honored to wear the shirt of América 75 times, respecting the club, fans, teammates and employees. Today I say goodbye because I know that I left everything I could leave. Was there anything more? There was, but I know that every cycle ends… .”; were some words from the player.
