Jorge Luís Andrade da Silva, better known as Andrade, is a former defensive midfielder born April 21, 1957 in Juiz de Fora, MG. After retiring from his career as an athlete, he became a head coach, having won the 2009 Brazilian Championship as Flamengo's general manager.



From 1977 to 1987 he played for Flamengo, taking part in the club's Golden Age and winning four Rio de Janeiro State Championships, four Brazilian Championships (1980, 1982, 1983, 1987), the 1981 Copa Libertadores and the 1981 Intercontinental Cup.

With 569 matches for Flamengo, Andrade has the 5th most appearances for the club.

Soon after his glorious era in Flamengo, he moved to AS Roma and then Vasco da Gama winning the 1989 Brazilian Championship. In the early 1980s he played for the Brazilian national football team.

Andrade also won a silver medal in the 1988 Summer Olympics.

Andrade and Zinho are the only Brazilian players who have won the National League 5 times, in 1987, together.

After a period as Flamengo's assistant manager, including working as interin manager in four occasions, Andrade finally had a chance as manager replacing Cuca, sacked by the club's directors, and won the 2009 Brazilian Championship, after 17 years of Flamengo's waiting.
