Born in Lisbon, Portugal, the defender began his youth career playing football for local side Clube Futebol Benfica at 8 years of age. To continue his development he moved to Sporting CP in 2004 and spent 6 years with the clubs youth academy. In 2011 he moved Vitória S.C. to complete his development with the Guimarães based club before signing his first professional contract with them in 2012. On April 2012 he made his first team and Primeira Liga debut in a 3-1 home win against F.C. Paços de Ferreira. He made a total of 35 appearances in his first season, scoring 6 goals, all of which came in the Portuguese Cup, including a historic winner in the final against S.L. Benfica as his side won the tournament for the first time in their history. In 2013 he joined Portuguese giants FC Porto, but struggled to hold down a place in the first team with only 19 appearances in the Primeira Liga over the next couple of seasons. In summer 2015 the defender was loaned out for two years to French club OGC Nice. The Portuguese man would rediscover his form and confidence in Ligue 1 playing 50 games over two seasons and was voted Ligue 1's best full-back by the International Centre for Sports Studies in 2016. In May 2018 Premier League club Leicester City acquired the services of the attacking full-back for €25 million. On the international stage he was selected to represent Portugal in the 2018 FIFA World Cup making his debut in the 2-1 Round of 16 loss against  Uruguay.
