Career Summary

HOW ACQUIRED: Transferred from Audax Italiano on Dec. 14, 2018.

Santos is a forward who can play in any of the attacking roles. Despite injuries limiting his minutes, the Brazilian scored eight goals, including a hat trick against Toronto FC, and added a pair of assists in the Union's greatest season to date. 

OUTSIDE MLS: Santos spent his entire professional career in Chile with Audax, making his first team debut on April 19, 2015 with a substitute appearance. The next season (2015-16), he appeared 19 times, scoring three goals, including his first career tally as part of a 2-1 win against Cobresal on October 15. Following a transition to a calendar-year format for the 2017 season, Santos helped Audax qualify for the 2018 Copa Sudamericana following a fifth place finish. He scored four goals in 14 games across that transitional season. Last year, he broke out with nine goals in 16 games, as well as one goal in one Copa Sudamericana appearance against Botafogo. He also helped Audax to the Copa Chile final, where the side finished as runners-up to Palestino.
