BALL - At 35, he is the least played goalkeeper in the League: "He has become more mature" (Casa Pia)

Agility comes from the cradle. This is how Ricardo Batista is characterized by those who saw him hit the ball first. The age of majority reaches 18 – exactly what a Goose goalkeeper accepts as a professional – but it was at 35 that he reached one of the pinnacles of his extensive career, defending the least scored goal in the League and now earning the title of August Goalkeeper of the Year.

Only one goal conceded (Goncalo Ramos, Benfica) and many impressive performances, reminding us of the times when he was considered an encouraging goal for Vitoria de Setúbal.

“Ricardo has become more mature. I’m glad for him. And for a goalkeeper, this is not old age. You can play a few more seasons playing big. Already in Vitoria’s formation, he stood out for his agility and body that filled the target. Now he is showing his maturity, he is at the right age,” said Fernando Tome, the glory of sadino and Portuguese football, who for two decades coordinated the formation of Vitoria.

“Several times among the insiders of the club was Ricardo Batista, I was called into the dressing room because he and Zequinha, good scoundrels, were painting a blanket and got into trouble. [risos]. But when I got there, everyone was already kissing and hugging. He was always a good guy, hardworking,” Tome said.
