Shakhtar Donetsk publish farewell video for Alex Teixeira following Jiangsu Suning move

Shakhtar Donetsk have published this video of Alex Teixeira bidding farewell and explaining his reasons for leaving the Ukrainians.

Having played for Shakhtar for the past 6 years, it’s clearly a wrench for the Brazilian to leave, after agreeing to sign for Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning.

Teixeira was hot on the radar of Chelsea and Liverpool, but after no concrete offers were made, he’s hedged his bets and made the money move to China.

Replete with soppy emotional music, watch Shakhtar’s rather maudlin farewell clip to Teixeira on the clip below.
