Polish club Łuczniczka Bydgoszcz has announced in its official website that it has parted ways with Brazilian opposite hitter Henrique Batagim on a mutual agreement. Batagim joined the club at the beginning of the season and played in a total of nine game. However, during a match against BBTS Bielsko-Biała, Batagim, he went down with an injury that will sideline him from volleyball for a long time.
The team wished the Brazilian player good luck in his career and his health. The 27-year-old 6’5″ Brazilian will now return to Brazil for treatment. Batagim, who had been a staple for all of Brazil’s youth teams, played limited roles for Superliga’s top clubs in his young career before leaving for stints in the Greek and Polish Leagues.
