Ruy Ramos (ラモス 瑠偉 Ramosu Rui?, born February 9, 1957), formerly Ruy Gonçalves Ramos Sobrinho (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈʁuj ɡõˈsawviʒ ˈʁɐ̃muʃ suˈbɾĩɲu], until he obtained Japanese citizenship), is a former Brazilian-born Japanese football player and manager. He played for Japan national team.

Biography[edit]

He was one of the first foreign players in Japanese professional football, joining club Yomiuri (later Verdy Kawasaki, now Tokyo Verdy) in 1977 at the age of 20. He was an important member of the Japanese national team during their unsuccessful 1994 World Cup qualification, eventually retiring from the game in 1998 at the age of 41. He was a member of the Japan team that won the 1992 AFC Asian Cup and he played 4 matches in the competition. Under manager Hans Ooft, Japan progressed to the final qualifying stage of the AFC for the 1994 FIFA World Cup. Ruy Ramos was on the pitch when Japan's hope to play in the finals was dashed by an injury-time Iraqi equaliser in the last qualifier, the match that the Japanese fans now refer to as the Agony of Doha.

He briefly came out of his retirement for Okinawa Kariyushi FC as player–technical adviser in 2002. However, he left the club after a row with the management at the end of the season. Then he served as technical adviser for crosstown FC Ryukyu.

In March 2005, Ramos became coach of Japan national beach soccer team and took them to the World Cup in 2005, where they finished fourth.

In January 2006, he was named coach of his former squad Tokyo Verdy, freshly relegated from J1 League. After a disappointing 2006 season in J2 League, Coach Ramos stated that if his team did not win the first game of the 2007 season, he would step down as head coach. The first game was on March 4 against Thespa Kusatsu, one of the weakest teams in the league, and Tokyo won this match 5-0. His team managed to finish 2nd after all and Tokyo Verdy returned to Division 1. After the season, Ramos became the executive director of the club.
