Nancy captain André Luiz to make final appearance next week
Nancy captain André Luiz has announced that he will play one last game for the club before terminating his contract and returning to Brazil.
The 32-year-old defender, who has been at the club since 2005, was due to make his final appearance against Drouais today, which Nancy won 5-1.
However, Luiz has announced on the club’s official website that coach Jean Fernandez has convinced him to play his final game against Lille next Saturday.
He said: "This is a beautiful chance and I could not refuse.
"I'll defer termination of my contract by a week and join my new club in Brazil later than expected."
The former Atlético Mineiro man won the French League Cup in 2006 and has made more than 250 Ligue 1 appearances for Nancy, scoring 20 goals.
