Rafael Benitez maintained his sterling record against Leeds United when Newcastle visited the side in the English Championship recently.

Dwight Gayle got the goals in the 2-0 victory but Benitez was in the spotlight for his record against Leeds.

Diego Cavalieri has hope with Brazil’s Tite

On June of 2016, it was confirmed that Tite was the man selected to replace the former coach of the Brazilian national team Dunga.

Dunga was sacked from his position after guiding the Brazilian national side to an underwhelming campaign where they failed to reach the knock-out stages of the latest edition of the Copa America Centenario.

Cavalieri believes in Klopp

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri believes that Jurgen Klopp is the right man for Liverpool.

He said that the manager has the necessary experience and should be able to bring Liverpool back to the top of the League. The former goalkeeper stated that Liverpool has been far too long in the shadow of other clubs and that it is time for the club to rise.


Liverpool has had a lot of changes in the goal keeping section for years now and Coach Jurgen Kloop wants Loris Karius to take over. Since the premier League era of the Reds, let’s take a look at some other shot stoppers that have graced the position.

Fluminense slumped to a second consecutive defeat

Fluminense slumped to a second consecutive defeat after a 4-2 thrashing at the hands of Santos.

This led to a lot of questions about the team being capable of coming closer to the top of the Brazilian Serie A table. As one of the experienced members of the team, goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri claimed that the team had to improve the balance in order to be more consistent when it comes to getting results. After making a poor start to the season, the club are in danger of finishing mid-table as a result of this poor form.

Diego Cavalieri wants to convince Dunga to play with Brazil

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri wants to convince the Brazil coach Dunga that he can play in the Brazilian squad.

He has not been selected for the Copa America, and he finds himself almost 4th in the pecking order. However, he has not lost hope that one day he will be able to represent Brazil.


Fluminense thrashed Volta Redonda by two goals to nothing in an away match on Sunday. Deigo Cavalieri was in action as the visitors emerged victorious in the Brazilian Carioca 1 match.

The 33-year old goal stopper started his professional career at Palmeiras before moving to English premier League side, Liverpool FC. After spending three seasons with The Reds, he played for Cesena before returning home to ply his trade at Fluminense.


In the most dramatic encounter yet, Fluminense put three unreplied goals past Boavista to win the second stage of the Brazilian Carioca championship. The spectacular match happened at Maracana, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Culpi is beginning to shape Fluminense

It’s been less than 1 month since Levir Culpi took charge of Fluminense but he is already making big changes in the Brazilian club and he has kicked things off by altering the training routine of the squad.

Levir Culpi stated that these changes that he has been making with Fluminense are things that helped him in getting better results during his time with his former club Atletico Mineiro.

Fluminense have failed to convince supporters

Fluminense have failed to convince supporters that they can challenge for the title this season.

This is despite a 4-0 thrashing of Tigres do Brasil in the latest match. This is largely down to the defeats suffered by the club at the start of 2016. Poor preseason was followed up with defeats against the likes of Volta Redonda. The club has since recovered and they have gone undefeated in the last three games. Conceding goals continues to be a problem for the team and the defence was exposed a lot in the 3-3 draw with Madureira.
