Wilfredo Caballero is an Argentine football player who currently features for the Spanish club Malaga. He plays as a goalkeeper.
Caballero commenced his professional club football career at Argentine giants Boca Juniors in 2001 and played for them for three years. However, he could only make just 15 league appearances, although he did win the Apertura Championship, the Copa Libertadores and the Intercontinental Cup in 2002.
In 2004 Caballero moved to Elche of Spain where he established himself and began to show his potential. He made over 186 league appearances for the modest Spanish outfit but in the Segunda Division.
In February 2011 Caballero was signed by Malaga from Elche on an emergency loan deal due to a serious knee injury to Sergio Asenjo, with the club’s second-choice custodian Ruben also on the sidelines with physical problems.
Caballero proved to be an able goalkeeper for Malag and on October 1, 2011 created a new Malaga record by keeping a clean sheet for 480 minutes. In January 2012 he signed a contract extension with the Andalucian outfit that will keep him at the club until June 2016.
Caballero has yet to make a appearance for the Argentina national team, but he won the FIFA U-20 World Cup and the 2004 Olympic Games in 2004 with the Under-20 team.
