He’s 25 years old, he’s 6ft 4ins, he can run like the wind, he’s strong, physical, composed and can play football. The one thing he needs to work on, which I speak regularly to him about, is his leadership skills. “He can become more vocal and because he’s such a good guy, when he speaks people listen.
. He is a player I think can go with us through the divisions, be on that journey, because this is a club that wants to protect its assets and not sell them – and he’s one of the biggest ones." Santos is active on social media with both Twitter and Instagram accounts, with the Wanderers supporters engaging with the defender on the platforms. And Evatt is pleased to see a relationship has been built with the club's fanbase for a player who the Bolton boss feels can be what he wants to be in the game.
