Who is Marcelo Pitaluga?

Signed from Fluminense in Brazil, Marcelo Pitaluga was the side’s fourth choice goalkeeper.

He had appeared on the bench in two senior games in Brazil and has been playing for the reserves since the age of 16.

After receiving glowing reports from Fluminense’s first choice goalkeeper – Alisson Becker’s brother, Muriel – along with strong scout reports, the Liverpool moved to sign Pitaluga this summer.
