Daniel Ruiz was a reinforcement for Santos in 2023

The attacking midfielder was signed by Peixe for last year’s Paulistão dispute with a buyout clause of US$4 million. Although he generated great expectations among the fans, the Colombian did not deliver on the field. In total, there were only 19 games with two assists and no goals scored.

During the Brazilian Championship dispute, when Santos was already fighting against relegation, Daniel Ruiz was removed by coach Paulo Turra. The player was not performing on the field, he faced problems adapting to the Portuguese language and the rhythm of Brazilian football and ended up isolated from the others at CT Rei Pelé.

In August, with no offers to continue his career for the country, Santos chose to terminate the contract and return it to Millonarios. Tonight, the attacking midfielder’s star shone when he scored the equalizer against Flamengo, even with the home team playing with one less.
