Ricardo Filipe Rodrigues Matos (born 15 February 1979 in Santo Ildefonso (Porto)) is a Portuguese retired footballer who played as a goalkeeper.

Football career[edit]

For the better part of his career Matos played in the Portuguese fourth division, having two spells in the third: in the 1999–2000 season he played with Grupo Desportivo Recreativo e Cultural Dragões Sandinenses, representing G.D. Ribeirão in 2008.

In the 2008–09 campaign, Matos was second-choice with Varzim S.C. in the second level. In the following summer, aged already 30, he signed for Primeira Liga side Vitória de Setúbal along with nine other players,[1] despite the club's precarious financial situation.[2]

In his first season in Setúbal, Matos acted as backup, making his first official appearance on 8 May 2010 in a 1–2 home defeat against already relegated C.F. Os Belenenses. Vitória narrowly managed to avoid the drop.
