Norberto Murara Neto or simply Neto (born July 19, 1989 in Araxá), is a Brazilian goalkeeper.[1] He currently plays for Fiorentina of the Italian Serie A.


Atlético Paranaense[edit]

Neto was installed as Atlético's first choice goalkeeper for the 2010 Brazilian Série A season. After being sent off in the first match of the campaign and serving a two match suspension, he returned and started every game for the club until October, when he was forced to miss several games after being called up for the Brazil national team.


He set a deal to play for Italian club Fiorentina on January 5, 2011,[1] signing the contract on January 8.[2]

Neto made his competitive debut for Fiorentina in the 4th round of the 2011-12 Coppa Italia on November 24, 2011 against local rivals Empoli, which Fiorentina won 2-1.

On 3 January 2015, Fiorentina issued a statement that Neto won't extend his contract with the club.[3]
