Luís Carlos Ramos Martins (born 10 June 1992) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Granada CF as a left back.

Club career[edit]

Born in Lamego, Viseu District, Martins was promoted to S.L. Benfica's first team for the 2011–12 season. He made his official debut for the club on 2 November 2011, starting in a UEFA Champions League group stage game against FC Basel and being replaced at the hour-mark of the 1–1 home draw by Miguel Vítor.[1]

Martins started the 2012–13 campaign with Benfica's reserves, in the second division. On 9 January 2013, however, he signed a three 1/2-year contract with Gil Vicente F.C. in the top level.[2]

On 1 September 2014 Martins signed a four-year deal with Granada CF in Spain, for an undisclosed fee.[3] He played his first game in La Liga on the 27th, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 0–6 away loss to FC Barcelona.

International career[edit]

Martins was picked by Portuguese under-20 coach Ilídio Vale for the 2011 FIFA World Cup in Colombia, helping the national team finish second to Brazil.
