Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo has lent his expertise as one of the world’s best footballers to CFD trading firm XTrade.

The four-time Golden Boot winner has adopted an ambassadorial role for the firm that allows consumers to trade on live market price movements through the digital trading platform.

Mark Leigh, head of operations at XTrade, said: “We are very excited to have Cristiano Ronaldo as our partner. We recognise strong similarities between us, as we both strive to be the number one performers in our fields. This partnership signifies an opportunity to support one of the world’s most exciting talents while promoting our market-leading and innovative online CFD trading products globally, increasing our international presence.”

Cristiano Ronaldo said: “To be the best, you need the best. That is why I have chosen to partner with XTrade, one of the world’s leading digital trading platforms. And there is no easy way to become the world’s best. The only way is through perseverance, practice, and more practice – until perfection.”

Through the partnership, the firm hopes to promote XTrade’s brand and expand its reach in the football industry.

Ronaldo has been bolstering his brand partnerships of late, going undercover for a second time for headphone brand Monster just recently.
