In the 2009–10 season Andrezinho enjoyed his best year as a professional, scoring five goals in 25 matches – often from free kicks – as Vitória finished in sixth position, narrowly missing out on a UEFA Europa League spot. In late July 2010 he joined 1. FC Köln in Germany, penning a two-year contract and reuniting with former Guimarães teammate Pedro Geromel; however, the Bundesliga outfit was not impressed by his performance and advised him to leave the club in the following transfer window.
