Injury-plagued Andrade allowed to leave

Juventus have released centre back Jorge Andrade from his contract after the Portugal international suffered two serious knee injuries in two years, the Serie A club said in a statement on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old, signed for about 10 million euro from Deportivo La Coruna in 2007, missed almost all of last season and has not played this term following a third operation.

Juve said last year they feared he would never be fit enough to cope with the demands of professional football.
