Biography

Nelson Semedo has been Wolves’ first choice at right-wing-back since his arrival from Barcelona in September 2020.

The Portugal international made the Molineux switch on the back of a trophy-littered spell at the Nou Camp, which saw him feature regularly in La Liga and the Champions League.

Semedo scooped ten major honours while at Barcelona, and headed to Molineux for a fresh challenge, signing a three-year deal with the option of a further two years.  

Having started his journey with Sintrense in the Portuguese third tier, Semedo’s big break came in 2012 when Benfica acquired his services and began developing an attacking, exciting full-back.

Having won two Portuguese league titles and three national cups, Semedo lured in Spanish giants Barcelona in 2017 and he repaid their faith during 124 appearances.

During his opening two years at Molineux, the defender surpassed the 60-match mark and bagged against Manchester United in the Premier League and Sheffield United in the Championship.
