Vancouver acquired Alexandre from Brazil’s Botafogo FR in March 2021 and has made 46 starts and 50 appearances in all competitions.

Alexandre is the fifth Whitecaps loanee, joining Derek Cornelius (Panetricos FC), David Egbo (Memphis 901 FC), Camron Habibra (Pacific FC) and Evan Newton (El Paso Locomotive FC). .
“This move makes sense for both Caio and the club,” Whitecaps sporting director Axel Schuster said in a statement. There are still 16 games left until the end of the year, and while Caio has been unlucky with a few injuries, he needs to record consistent times and we will be watching his progress closely.”
