The rebirth of Ruben Semedo

The central defender passed through Villarreal and Huesca without success and with problems: kidnapping, robbery ... Now, he could go to Benfica from Olympiacos.


Ruben Semedo did not live the best moment of his career in Spain or within the green, much less outside of it. The Portuguese central defender was a notable investment from Villarreal (14 million euros to Sporting) that did not go well.

The Portuguese never offered the expected level in the field and also ended up arrested accused of kidnapping, robbery, injuries and illegal possession of weapons for retaining and assaulting a person at his home in Bétera. Semedo came to be in preventive prison, where he attended a talk given by Parejo and Marcelino when they were at Valencia, and when he left he was transferred to Huesca. In Aragon, he did not improve although he strongly believed it. Or so he assured, at least, in his presentation.

Various errors in games, fines from the club for partying and Francisco, his coach, accusing him in public of "not respecting the values of the dressing room." The player arrived on July 20, 2018 and on January 29, 2019 it was already terminated. Villarreal transferred him to Rio Ave at the end of the season and in June, he left for Olympiacos.

In Greece he has recovered the level he was known for and now, according to the Portuguese press, Jorge Jesús wants to rescue him for his new project at Benfica. The former of Flamengo is able to straighten the course of the center-back that he already had at his command at Sporting, where he offered his best performance. The Piraeus team is asking for 10 million for him, although Sporting is confident, according to A Bola, in lowering the price.He will not be able to enter Spain

In sports, Benfica points out as his future but the central defender has also experienced recent developments in the judicial system. As reported on July 17 by 'Levante EMV', Ruben Semedo would have recognized the crimes of which he is accused and has been sentenced to eight years without entering Spain and a fine of 46,000 euros for civil liability.
