Réver Humberto Alves Araújo (born 4 January 1985), simply known as Réver, is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Internacional. Mainly a central defender, he can also play as a defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]


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.


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.[2] He was an ever-present figure during the following campaigns.


In January 2010 Réver signed a five-year contract with VfL Wolfsburg.[3] He only appeared in an UEFA Europa League match against Fulham, being on the bench during the Bundesliga season.

Atlético Mineiro[edit]

On 19 July 2010 Réver was announced as an Atlético Mineiro player for the 2010 Série A on Atlético Mineiro's chairman Alexandre Kalil personal Twitter profile.[4]


On 14 January 2015 Réver joined Internacional on a 3 year and a half contract.[5]
