Douglas Luiz has emerged as a standout performer for Aston Villa in the four years since he signed from Manchester City. His influence peaked during the 2022/23 campaign when he was named both Players' Player and Supporters' Player of the Season.
After debuting against Tottenham on the opening day of the 2019/20 Premier League season, Luiz has racked up over 150 appearances for the club. His form in claret and blue led to a first senior Brazil cap in November 2019.
And his displays for Villa during 33 appearances in the 2020/21 season led to his inclusion in the Brazil squad for the Copa América in June 2021 and the Tokyo Olympic Games later that summer. Luiz ended summer 2021 with a gold medal around his neck after Brazil successfully defended their Olympic title.
Luiz was a key player for Villa once again in 2021/22, racking up 35 appearances in all competitions before signing a new long-term contract with the club in October 2022.
Born in Rio de Janeiro, Luiz began his career at Vasco da Gama before making the move to Manchester City in 2017. The cultured midfielder spent two seasons on loan at La Liga side Girona before joining Villa in the summer of 2019.
