    Goalkeeper Marcelo Pitaluga joined The Saints on loan from Liverpool FC on January 5th 2024.

    Pitaluga was born in Niteroi, Rio de Janeiro on December 20th 2002.

    He spent his youth career in his homeland with Vasco Da Gama before 10 years with Fluminense.

    Marcelo was in the Brazil squad that won the FIFA U17 World Cup in November 2019, Brazil beat Mexico 2-1 in the final to claim victory on home soil.

    The net-minder joined Liverpool in October 2020, aged just 17.

    Pitaluga is the second goalkeeper to join us on loan from Liverpool in recent years, following in the footsteps of Vítezslav Jaros, who had a hugely successful spell with us for the 2021 season, where he helped the Saints to the FAI Cup, before returning to Merseyside.

    Since joining The Reds, Pitaluga has played regularly in the LFC Academy and for the club's U21 and U23 sides and has been on the bench for the first team on seven occasions as well as featuring for Liverpool in a pre-season friendly last summer.

    Pitaluga signed a new contract extension at Anfield before completing his loan deal to Inchicore.

    The 6'4'' goalkeeper spent time on loan Macclesfield FC during the 2022/23 EFL season, making 17 appearances, before returning to Liverpool.

    He made his debut for St Pat’s in the Leinster Senior Cup away to UCD in February and also started the President's Cup Final against Shamrock Rovers


    Previous Clubs: Fluminense (2019-2020), Liverpool (2020-), Macclesfield (loan) 2022-2023, St Patrick's Athletic (loan) (2024-)
