Portuguese pair Semedo and Ronaldo grew up playing football together at the Sporting Lisbon academy between 1998 and 2002.

Ronaldo, now at Real Madrid, said they have supported each other throughout their football journies.

Writing in the foreword, Ronaldo said: “Win The Day shows just how dedicated José is to being the best he can be, both as a professional and as a person. The book also reminds me of José’s big heart and his desire to help and support other people so they can reach their full potential.

“I’m sure Semedo will inspire younger players with his wise words and stories about his priceless experiences in the world of football.”
