Anthony Cáceres (born 29 September 1992) is an Australian association football player who plays as a central midfielder for Melbourne City, on loan from Manchester City of the Premier League.

Career[edit]

Central Coast Mariners[edit]

Caceres made his A-League debut for the Central Coast Mariners in the F3 Derby against the Newcastle Jets, starting in a scoreless draw in January 2013.[1] He scored his first goal for the club one year and two days later, again against the Jets, making a run from halfway and shooting from outside the area to open the scoring in a 3–0 win.[2]

Manchester City[edit]

On 15 January 2016, Caceres was sold to Premier League club Manchester City on a long-term contract for fee in the region of AUS$300,000. He was immediately loaned out to their A-League partner, Melbourne City.[3] Caceres' move to Melbourne City sparked some controversy, given that transfer fees are not allowed to be paid directly between A-League clubs.[4]

Personal life[edit]

He is the boyfriend of Western Sydney Wanderers FC W-League forward Helen Petinos, whom he met at Westfields Sports High School.[5][6] Caceres is of Uruguayan descent.[7]
