Standing at 6 foot 6, towering Centre-back Ricardo Almeida Santos has made quite the impression since joining from Peterborough United in the January transfer window of 2017.

Despite once being scouted by current Portuguese champions Benfica, the 22-year-old was sold to Barnet after a three-year spell at The Posh, making 75 appearances in all competitions after signing from Isthmian League club Thurrock.

Santos, who can also fill in at Right-Back if needed, is rated as one of the best young centre-backs in the division and, with many more years ahead of him, he will only continue to grow and mature into an even better defender.

Contributing 15 appearances and two goals last season, there’s no doubt as to why Santos will be a player to look out for during this campaign.
