BOLA – Benfica announces renewal with Japa (Volleyball)

Benfica announced, this Sunday, the renewal of the contract with André Aleixo, also known as Japa.

The 31-year-old zone 4 is preparing to complete his fourth season with the Reds, after several years at the service of Rio de Janeiro Voleibol Clube.

“I’m happy. I have a lot of friends here and it’s good to be with them. I will continue to enjoy. Renewal is always a vote of confidence, it is a sign that the team wants us to fight together. It’s a good feeling. My family and I also want to stay, because we are used to the club and the city”, said the Brazilian to BTV.

Since 2019/2020 (this season was suspended and then canceled due to the pandemic), Japa won three Super Cups, two championships and a Portuguese Cup.
