Cavalieri leaves Reds for Cesena

August 23, 2010

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.
