Helder And Depor Part Ways
News Archive

05/16/2002.

Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna and fringe Portuguese international Helder Rodrigues Cristovao have jointly decided not to extend their June-expiring contract with each other.

"I'm not yet sure where I'll be playing next season, I'll decide in a couple of weeks time," the 31-year-old centre-back said during a press conference on Wednesday. "Regardless, I'm leaving with my head held high and happy to have been part of such a club."

Helder has seen precious little action since falling firmly behind Donato, Naybet and Cesar in the Depor defensive pecking order this term, which is the primary reason he was not included in the 23-man squad that will represent Portugal in the World Cup this summer.

What?:confused:
It was clear almost all season that he will leave eventually. He isn't bad but just doesn't have the class of Naybet, Donato or César. Not good to give the player away for free though :(.

i just wanted to be funny.
I have never really liked Helder but in some strange way he feels like a cult-player.

Anyway good luck to him!
