Cavalieri leaves Reds for Cesena

The 27-year-old Brazilian was signed by former Reds manager Rafael

Benitez from Palmeiras in July 2008. However, he was only ever

considered back-up to first-choice Jose Reina and as a result made

just 10 appearances for the first team. The arrival last week of

Middlesbrough’s Brad Jones, who qualifies as a ‘home-grown’ player

despite being an Australia international, signalled the end of

Cavalieri’s Anfield career. Liverpool have confirmed Jones will now

take over the number one shirt vacated by the Brazilian.
