Club career

Early years

Cáceres started his career with Montevideo-based Defensor Sporting, becoming a first-team regular at a young age, and competing in one full Primera División season with the team. In early February 2007, he had already signed for Spanish outfit Villarreal CF, with the deal being made effective in July.[1]

Upon arriving at Villarreal, Cáceres was immediately sent on loan to fellow La Liga club Recreativo de Huelva,[2] being one of the most used players during the season (2,988 minutes, often partering Portuguese Beto in central defense) as the Andalusians managed to retain its division status, finishing in 16th position; on 9 January 2008, he scored against the team that owned his rights in the season's Copa del Rey (1–0 home win, but 1–2 loss on aggregate),[3] and never appeared officially for the Yellow Submarine.

Barcelona

Cáceres joined FC Barcelona on 4 June 2008, with a reported transfer fee of 16.5 million being paid to Villarreal. A buyout clause of €50 million was included in the deal, which ran until June 2012.[4] During his only season at the Camp Nou, he featured sparsely, due to both injury and technical decisions.

Even after his recovery, Cáceres only managed to be fourth-choice stopper for the Catalans, behind Rafael Márquez, Gerard Piqué and Carles Puyol. He appeared in three games in the season's UEFA Champions League (two starts, 217 minutes), being an unused substitute in the final against Manchester United which completed the treble for Barça.

On 6 August 2009, Barcelona loaned Cáceres to Juventus F.C. in Serie A, with the Turin team having an option to make his stay permanent at the end of the season for €11 million, plus €1 million in variables.[5] He made his debut in a pre-season friendly against former team Villarreal the following day, replacing Jonathan Zebina at right-back at half-time.[6]

The league season began well for Cáceres, as he made a goal-scoring debut, netting the opener in a 2–0 away win against S.S. Lazio.[7] He began as a regular under Ciro Ferrara, but his campaign would be ultimately disrupted by a number of injuries, including one in January 2010 that ruled him out for several months.[8]

Sevilla

On 30 August 2010, Cáceres returned to Spain and joined Sevilla FC on a season-long loan, with an option to purchase.[9] He featured regularly for the Gregorio Manzano-led team, especially at right defender following the return of Abdoulay Konko to Genoa CFC, in January 2011.

On 1 May 2011, Cáceres was severely injured by Michael Jakobsen in a match against UD Almería, suffering a lacerated kidney following a dangerous challenge. The Dane was given a straight red card, and the South American was initially ruled out for the rest of the season,[10] but miraculously recovered for the final two games, with Sevilla finishing fifth and qualifying to the UEFA Europa League.

On 31 May 2011, Sevilla agreed a €3 million deal plus €1.5 million in variables with Barcelona for the permanent move of Cáceres to the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.[11]

International career

Cáceres played with the Uruguayan under-20 team at the 2007 FIFA World Cup held in Canada, appearing in all the games in an eventual round of 16 exit.[12] Previously, he was named the Best Defender at the 2007 South American Youth Championship, helping his team to the third place.[1]

Cáceres made his debut for the full side on 12 September of that year, in Johannesburg against South Africa. In 2010, he was selected by manager Óscar Tabárez for his list of 23 players for that year's FIFA World Cup, backing up F.C. Porto's Jorge Fucile at right-back, and appearing in the semifinals against the Netherlands and the third-place match against Germany (both 2–3 losses).

With Fucile not being selected to the 2011 Copa América in Argentina, Cáceres appeared in five out of six matches during the tournament - as right defender - with the Charrúas winning their 15th continental tournament.
