Henrique, one of the most popular players at Brisbane Roar over the years, will leave the club at season’s end with the player considering a new career in coaching.
The naturalized Aussie leaves as a three-time A-League Championship winner.
Fan-favourite Henrique made 168 A-League appearances and was a member of all three of the Roar's Championship-winning squads.
Affectionally nicknamed the ‘Slippery Fish,’ the striker is the second-highest goalscorer in Roar history with 45 A-League goals.
Known for his knack of finding the back of the net in crucial moments, he scored in two separate Grand Finals, both in the second half of extra time in the 2010-11 and 2013-14 deciders.
He famously scored the winning penalty in the 2011 grand final to spark amazing scenes of joy at Orange Sunday 1.
“At this point in time, I have to take care of my injury.
"That will give me time to look at all opportunities to then make a clear decision to continue playing or transition perhaps into coaching," he said today.
There will be a presentation at half-time of Thursday’s ANZAC Day A-League fixture at Suncorp Stadium in recognition of Henrique’s service to Brisbane Roar FC.
