João Pedro Lima Santos (born 15 August 1980) commonly known as João Pedro is a Portuguese footballer playing for Famalicão in the Portugal as a full back.

Club career[edit]

A graduate of Porto youth academy, Pedro never made it to the first team. He entered professional football with Leça in 1999 before playing for Trofense and Famalicão in the following years. He made 100 league appearance for Estoril Praia between 2002 and 2005, finding the net thrice. After leaving the club, he again had a long spell with Gil Vicente.

In 2009, at a ripe age of 29, Pedro moved abroad for the first time, joining Ethnikos Achna in Cypriot First Division. A lack of first team opportunities saw him return to Portugal with Gil Vicente. There also things did not go well for him, as he spent the entire 2010–11 without any league appearances. In 2013, he signed for Penafiel of Segunda Liga.[1] He made his debut for his new club against UD Oliveirense.[2]
