One of Adelaide’s Brazilian contingent has committed to the club for a further two years.
Left-sided defender Cassio has signed a new deal which will see him stay at Hindmarsh Stadium until 2010 which is great news for Reds supporters.
Cassio was delighted after penning the new contract and was looking forward to the future in his ‘home away from home’.
“I’m very happy because I feel comfortable here, this is my second home and the fans like me and I like the fans,” Cassio said.
“Everything here for me is fantastic and I always try to do my best on the pitch and I think this is an important decision for me to stay here.
“It’s hard for us because we are professional and we have to look out for our futures. I had some offers from other clubs here and overseas, some of them with better money but I want to stay here, I am clear with this decision and I feel happy with this decision.
“The A-League clubs I spoke to here were very professional with their intention to want to sign me, and I just want to say they are very good people, but it was my decision to stay here,” he concluded.
