Doniéber Alexander Marangon, better known as Doni, signed for Liverpool in July, 2011 from AS Roma.
He had been on the books of five clubs in his native Brazil before signing for Roma in 2005 at the age of 25. Although relatively inexperienced he soon established himself as Roma’s first choice goalkeeper, winning the Coppa Italia in 2007 and 2008 and the Italian super cup in 2007.
2007 was also the year he made his debut for Brazil and later that year won the Copa America playing a major part in Brazil’s semi final win against Uruguay, where he saved two penalties in the deciding shoot out. He has won 11 caps in total.
Doni provides experienced cover for Pepe Reina and, as he showed in his appearance in the friendly with Glasgow rangers in 2011, would provide excellent back-up should it be needed.
