Goodbye Lucio

Lucio, the versatile captain of the Brazilian national team has left Bayern Munich for Inter Milan. Uli Hoeness, general manager of Bayern Munich, announced details of the move today. He will sign a three year deal with Inter. According to Kicker, Bayern Munich received €8 Million for the transfer.

Lucio had a contract till 30 June 2010 but under Louis Van Gaal, he was surplus to requirements. Bayern Munich have Martin Demichelis,Holger Badstuber,Breno, Edson Braafheid and Daniel van Buyten vying for two places in the team.

He is a defender par excellence. In his five year stint with Munich, he played 144 times and scored 7 goals. He won the league and DFB Cup in 2005,2006 and 2008. His trademark is his astute judgement in defence and offensive orientation in attack.

Bundesliga will miss the God fearing defender for his demeanour on the field. Goodbye Lucio.
