Hodgson Brings In The Cavalieri

Hodgson Brings In The Cavalieri

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has finally confirmed the arrival of long speculated goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri to the club.

The former Brazilian international goalkeeper has been a regular topic of speculation for the media over the last few weeks, but yesterday Palace confirmed the arrival of the 35 year old on a deal until the end of the season.

The stopper joins as a free agent following his release from Fluminense at the end of 2017 and he rejoins Hodgson once more having worked together during their time at Liverpool.

Having started his career at Palmeiras in 2002, he went on to spend six years with Sao Paulo before being signed by Rafael Benitez and making the move to Anfield. In 2010 he made the switch to Serie A side Cesena before returning home to Fluminense where he helped them to the 2012 Brazilian league title and saw himself named in the Team of the Year as well as receiving a call up to their national side.

He arrives clearly with plenty of experience under his belt.

Speaking to Crystal Palace FC on Friday evening as his capture was announced, he explained.

'I am very happy to be here and have been training with the guys for some time now. The atmosphere in the dressing room has been really good and they have received me very well so we can talk a lot and get to know everyone. I am very happy with this opportunity.'
