Chilavert has some wild claims about ‘predictable’ Mbappe

Former goalkeeper Jose Luis Chilavert asserts that Kylian Mbappe would encounter difficulties if he were to compete in South America.

Although Kylian Mbappe has undeniably established himself as one of the premier players in the world during the past five or six years, having scored an impressive 148 goals in 176 appearances for PSG, his accomplishments have failed to convince the former Paraguayan goalkeeper, Jose Luis Chilavert. Chilavert, the second-highest scoring goalkeeper of all time with 54 goals, remains steadfast in his belief that the 24-year-old striker would encounter difficulties should he ever decide to venture to South America.

Speaking on the Futbol de los grandes radio show, he said: “I would like to see him running at altitude in La Paz or Quito, or playing away in Brazil. Here he would be an average player, he’s predictable. Obviously he has an advantage with his speed, but with a defender blowing his neck we can control him calmly.”

Chilavert’s remarks are likely to generate surprise and provoke curiosity due to Mbappe’s exceptional track record in both domestic and international competitions.

Having already secured a World Cup victory and consistently attracting significant attention from Real Madrid, but the talented Mbappe’s achievements and potential make Chilavert’s comments noteworthy.

The striker will likely feature in France’s Euro 2026 qualifying fixture against Greece on Monday.
