Romeu Oliveira Ribeiro (born 13 January 1989) is a Portuguese footballer who plays for F.C. Penafiel as a defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Vieira do Minho, Braga District, Ribeiro began his football formation with local S.C. Braga, being acquired by S.L. Benfica in 2004. Like Miguel Vítor, he first played with the main squad due to injuries to teammates, making his debuts in the Primeira Liga and European competition in exactly the same matches that Vítor, in August 2007.

However, in January 2008, both players were loaned to second division side C.D. Aves.[1] In August, the loan period was extended until June of the following year.

In July 2009, Ribeiro would be once again loaned, joining C.D. Trofense as it had just been relegated back to the second level. In the following year, in the same predicament, he signed for top flight club C.S. Marítimo.

Ribeiro moved to Marítimo on a permanent basis in the 2011 summer, after his contract with Benfica expired. However, as manager Pedro Martins – and all his predecessors – preferred foreign players, especially Brazilians, he spent the vast majority of his three-year spell in Madeira with the reserves, in divisions three and two.

After being released on 30 June 2013, Ribeiro spent the vast majority of his career in the second tier, the exception to this being the 2014–15 season in the main division, with F.C. Penafiel (1,153 minutes of action, team relegation).

Personal life[edit]

Ribeiro's father was a goalkeeper, whilst his younger brother Yuri plays for S.L. Benfica B.[2]
