Biography

Réver Humberto Alves Araújo (born 4 January 1985), simply known as Réver, is a Brazilian footballer who currently plays for Brazilian club Flamengo on loan from Internacional. Mainly a central defender, he can also play as a defensive midfielder. He has won the Bola de Prata and Prêmio Craque do Brasileirão twice each.

Club career

Paulista

Born in Ariranha, São Paulo, Réver started his career at Paulista, a Série B football club based in Jundiaí, and was promoted to the first team in 2004. He was a part of the Paulista Championship runner-up squad and contributed to the major title of the club, the 2005 Brazilian Cup.

Réver soon became an important first teamer alongside Marcio Mossoró and Victor and attracted many other big Brazilian clubs. Despite the bad campaign in the Libertadores in 2006, he stood out and went on loan to Al-Wahda, a football club based in Abu Dhabi.

Grêmio

In early 2008, after the relegation to the Série C and the Campeonato Paulista poor campaign, Paulista sold half of Réver's rights and sent him on loan to Grêmio, reuniting with former teammate Victor. He quickly gained a first team spot and established himself as one of the bests defenders in the championship, being also one of the team's vice-captains.

On November 12, Gremio obtained the other half of his rights and Réver signed a new five-year contract. He was an ever-present figure during the following campaigns.

Wolfsburg

In January 2010 Réver signed a five-year contract with VfL Wolfsburg. He only appeared in an UEFA Europa League match against Fulham, being on the bench during the Bundesliga season.

Réver playing for Atlético Mineiro in 2012

Atlético Mineiro

On 19 July 2010 Réver was announced as an Atlético Mineiro player for the 2010 Série A on club president Alexandre Kalil's personal Twitter account. Réver debuted for Atlético Mineiro a month later, being called up for the national time in the meantime, and became team captain in the second half of the season. The following season was difficult for the club in the Série A, struggling against relegation, but Réver won the Prêmio Craque do Brasileirão for best centre-back in the competition. In 2012, Réver captained the team in its undefeated Campeonato Minero victory, and through its Série A title contest with Fluminense. Despite the club finishing as runner-up, Réver again was selected for the team of the year, in both the Craque do Brasileirão and the Bola de Prata awards, together with team-mate Leonardo Silva. Réver remained as club captain in the following season, in which he won the Campeonato Mineiro and the Copa Libertadores with the club. In 2014, he became Atlético Mineiro's top goalscoring centre-back in history with 22 goals, a record later surpassed by Leonardo Silva, who replaced Réver as captain in the middle of the season as he struggled with injury. After winning the 2014 Recopa Sudamericana with the club, another injury made Réver eventually lose his first-squad status to Jemerson in the later half of the season, and in 2015 he was allowed to leave by the club's board.

Internacional

On 14 January 2015 Réver joined Internacional on a 3-year and a half contract.

Flamengo

On 8 June 2016 Internacional accepted to loan Réver to Flamengo on a one-year spell as he had lost space in the first team squad and consistently suffered injuries. He debuted for his new club scoring the game winner header against Cruzeiro on 15 June 2016 at Mineirão Stadium.
