Club career

Caballero began his career with Olimpia in Honduras, playing with the team from 1996 until transferring overseas in 2001. He moved to Serie A to play for Udinese, where he would remain until moving to Salernitana in 2004. He then played for Nacional in Uruguay, before his move to Major League Soccer and the Chicago Fire. Caballero had a disappointing 2005 with the club, and was released. He has spent the 2006 preseason with the Colorado Rapids.

In the 2008-2009 Winter Market it was reported that two teams from Honduras, Marathon and Olimpia, are interested in the signing of Samuel Caballero after he publicly stated his desire to return to Honduras in order to be close to family and return to the National Team. However, the player still had a contract with the Chinese Club Changchun Yatai and stated that if he did not receive any offers he would return to the club and complete his contract.

International career

Caballero also has been a hugely important force on the Honduran national team, playing during 2002 and 2006 World Cup Qualifiers.[1]
