Paulinho’s successor is perfectly identified by Sporting and there is no need to go to the market. Rodrigo Ribeiro, a 17-year-old forward, is one of the youngsters Rúben Amorim believes in the most. Whether it will be a bet for the next season, only the Lions’ coach will know, but, sooner or later, Ribeiro will win in green and white.

Sooner or later, Rodrigo Ribeiro will avenge with a lion on his chest

Rodrigo Ribeiro, who has been in Alvalade since 2017, made his debut for the main team last season and then in the Champions League. On March 9, 2022, during the lions’ visit to Manchester City, Amorim launched the youngster in the middle of the Etihad Stadium, in the 89th minute.

Exactly one month later, on April 9, another opportunity for Ribeiro, on the trip to Tondela. In all, in 21/22, the forward played five games for the main team. In addition to City (1′) and Tondela (1′), the 17-year-old played against Gil Vicente (6′, home), Portimonense (6′, away) and Santa Clara (27′, home).

Rodrigo Ribeirou also played 30 games: eight for the B team (four goals), six for the under-23 (two goals), 15 for the juniors (three goals) and one for the youth team. In the youth teams, the young man also enchanted everyone and everything.

With a contract signed until 2024, Rodrigo Ribeiro – along with Nuno Mendes, Tiago Tomás and Joelson Fernandes – is among the 100 most promising youngsters in the world, being a candidate for the Golden Boy award. However, in Alcochete, the striker’s potential had been identified for a long time.
