Leonardo Da Silva Lopes
Date of birth
Leonardo Da Silva Lopes is a talented teenager who burst into the first team picture as a 16-year-old.
Da Silva Lopes only joined Peterborough United as a 15-year-old after being spotted playing for a local side called Powerleague and he hasn't looked back, clocking up his 50th senior appearance in the win at Gillingham at the age of just 18.
The energetic central midfielder has athleticism, pace and power and has had scouts flocking to the ABAX Stadium to check out his potential. Unfazed by higher league and more experienced opponents, Da Silva Lopes has netted twice in cup competitions, against Swansea City in the League Cup and Notts County in the Emirates FA Cup.
