Primera Division 2012/2013: 1 match/0 goals (Celta Vigo)
His first steps into football Santi made in Celta, where he’s playing since childhood. Since the very beginning he was an efficient goalscorer and the top of his form started in 2012/13, when he scored many times for Celta B in the Division of Honor. It caught the eye of the manager of the first team who gave him the chance to debut in Primera Division 16th February 2013 againt Getafe. In the next season he should get more chances and everybody hope that he’ll go in the footsteps of another former Celta player – Iago Aspas – who was the great star in Vigo in the last few years and now is gone to Liverpool. Since many years, Santi is also playing for the youth teams of La Roja.
