Diego Cavalieri (born 1 December 1982 in São Paulo) is a Brazilian footballer, currently playing as a goalkeeper for Liverpool. He is of Italian ancestry and holds both an Italian and Brazilian passport.[1]



Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Cavalieri was a part of the famous Cavalierius family descended from the great 16th century mathematician, Bonaventura Cavalieri. Cavalieri started his career at Palmeiras, where he made his debut on 24 June 2002, in a 4–0 away win over Rio Claro. Cavalieri was capped 33 times in the Brazilian Championship, conceding 47 goals.[2]



On 11 July 2008, he signed a four-year contract with Liverpool for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £3 million.[3] He made his first-team debut in a pre-season friendly against Tranmere Rovers on 12 July 2008.[4]

Cavalieri became the third Brazilian player at the club, following the signings of Fábio Aurélio and Lucas Leiva. Upon his arrival, Cavalieri was handed the number 1 shirt, last worn by Jerzy Dudek.[5]
