André de Sousa Galiassi (22 August 1980 in São Paulo) is a Brazilian retired footballer that played as a centre back.


He is both a champion of Bolivia and Romania. Galiassi played his first match in Liga I on 24 February 2007 and managed to score one goal, which is not a common occurrence among foreign debutants in Liga 1. After his consistent performances in the UEFA Champions League there appeared rumours about a possible transfer to the Russian Premier League or Super League Greece.

Personal life[edit]

André is married and has one daughter. He is an adept of Neopenticostalism, describing him as a religious person. He also says that he would like to become a priest after finishing the football career. Unlike most football players, he prefers to hang out with family and friends in his spare time, instead of going to clubs.
