Club career

Coritiba and Palmeiras

Henrique started his career at Coritiba of home region. In 2008 along with he was bought to Palmeiras. The deal was partially financed by Traffic Group, which part of the transfer fee of Henrique was credited to Desportivo Brasil, the subsidiary of Traffic[4] and re-distributed by Desportivo to Palmeiras.[5]


Ajax were said to have tabled a bid for Henrique in June 2008,[6] which was soon followed by a report saying he had agreed terms with FC Barcelona. Barcelona agreed to sign Henrique from Palmeiras for €8 million, with an extra €2 million in bonuses, on a five-year deal, and that he would be loaned out to Bayer Leverkusen.[7] The transfer was completed a day later.[8] Henrique made 27 league appearances in his season with Leverkusen and reached the final of the German Cup. He returned to Barcelona in June 2009, being given the number 23 shirt upon his return. On 31 August 2009, Henrique was loaned out to Racing Santander.[9] The loan was renewed on 26 July 2010.[10] Barcelona write-down €1.757 million[11] for the residual contract value of Henrique in 2010–11 season.[12]


On 15 July 2011, he returned to Brazil.[13] On 2 June 2012 Barcelona cancelled Henrique's contract so he was released. Henrique was reunited with Palmeiras on a free transfer after a successful loan in the 2011–12 season.[14] During the 2012 Copa do Brasil campaign, coach Luiz Felipe Scolari started playing Henrique as a holding midfielder and the player thrived in the new role, with Palmeiras eventually winning the competition. Henrique also became second captain of the squad, behind dead-ball specialist Marcos Assunção in the pecking order.

International career

On 21 March 2008, Henrique received his first call up to the Brazilian national team, after centre back Juan was cut from the squad due to an injury to his ankle.[15]

On 16 April 2013, Henrique was called up by Luiz Felipe Scolari, his former coach in Palmeiras, for a friendly against Chile on 24 April at Mineirão.[16] But on 19 April, as Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras would play against Tijuana on the next day, Henrique was sacked from the list, and Rodrigo Moledo, defender of Internacional, was called up in his place.[17] On the same day, Conmebol shifted the Palmeiras game and Henrique, was recalled up, but Moledo was kept on the list.[3]
