Douglas Pereira dos Santos signed for FC Barcelona on August 26th 2014 and he was presented three days later. He plays in the left back position but has had difficulties consolidating his place on the first team.
Douglas was born in Monte Alegre de Goiás in Brazil on August 6th 1990 and began his playing career in 2008 with Goiás, his hometown team. He signed for Sao Paulo in 2012 and between the two clubs played a total of 212 matches in the Brazilian League.
Douglas made his debut for Barça on September 25th 2014 against Malaga but has been unable to establish himself on the first team and this situation looks likely to continue in the future.
* Douglas is currently on loan to Sporting de Gijón
Douglas Pereira dos Santos is an attacking right back with a reasonable sense of position in defence. He may be good enough for other teams but, in my opinion, he lacks the vision and technical ability for FC Barcelona.
