Matthieu Valverde (born 14 May 1983) is a French footballer who plays for Cypriot Second Division side Enosis Neon Paralimni


After the departure of second-choice keeper Frédéric Roux, Valverde was given the #1 shirt and was set to serve as understudy to French international Ulrich Ramé. While Roux was at the club, Valverde made only two league appearances in three years.[1] On 24 July 2009, Valverde joined recently promoted club US Boulogne.[2] On 9 December, due to numerous injuries suffered by their goalkeepers, Toulouse acquired Valverde from Boulogne.

Olympique Lyonnais[edit]

With reserve keepers Remy Vercoutre and Anthony Lopes both missing through injury, Valverde was brought in until the end of the 2011/12 season to deputise for Lyon's first choice goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris. Valverde had been a free agent after he had been released by Toulouse the previous season. He said: "Bordeaux were a big club, but Lyon are a level above. Their results for the last 10 years prove it, and I am very happy to be part of this squad. I think that OL are a great club that will allow me to bounce back."
