Brazilian star Diego Cavalieri spent two years at Premier League giants Liverpool before he moved to Italian football to play in the colours of Cesena. He had earlier joined the Reds from Palmeiras in his native Brazil in 2008. At Liverpool, Diego Cavalieri failed to make a single appearance in the Premier League as he was unable to usurp Spaniard Pepe Reina who was the first choice goalkeeper. It must be pointed out that Cavalieri played eight matches for Liverpool in other competitions.

On August 18, 2010, Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson informed reporters that Diego Cavalieri is on his way out of the Merseyside club. According to him, the Brazilian shot stopper will join Italian team Cesena after the game against Turkish team Trabzonspor in the Europa League. Five days later, his transfer to Cesena was confirmed. His move to Cesena paved the way for Brad Jones to take his number one jersey. (more…)


Liverpool fans should remember the name Diego Cavalieri. The 32-year-old Brazilian keeper, moved to Liverpool in 2008 after signing a four-year contract for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £3 million.

Cavalieri became the third Brazilian player at the club, following the signings of Fábio Aurélio and Lucas Leiva. Upon his arrival, he was handed the number 1 shirt, last worn by Jerzy Dudek. Cavalieri made his competitive debut on 23 September 2008 against Crewe Alexandra in the third round of the League Cup.
