Andre Ramalho is leaving FC Red Bull Salzburg and moving to PSV Eindhoven. Both clubs reported this on Wednesday morning.
The 29-year-old Brazilian left Salzburg once and switched to the German Bundesliga in the summer of 2015. After playing for Bayer Leverkusen and Mainz 05, he returned to the Red Bulls in January 2018.
Now, after a total of 240 games, six championship titles and five cup successes, the defensive player is saying goodbye to the Netherlands, where he signs with second place Eindhoven and meets his old mentor Roger Schmidt.
“Andre has made great progress since his return to FC Red Bull Salzburg and was an absolute leader both on and off the pitch. We regret his decision to move, but we can also understand that he wants to do something different again. We share a lot of great experiences with Andre, say goodbye to a great player and person and wish him good health and continued success at his new club, “said Salzburg sports director Christoph Freund in farewell.
Ramalho himself also has warm words: “I owe FC Red Bull Salzburg an incredible amount and not only had a great time here, but also a very successful one. It is really difficult for me to say goodbye because I have so many wonderful memories of the club and the city and the people. But now I’m 29 years old and now I want to take the great opportunity to open an exciting new chapter in my football career. “
