A whole country is watching as the super talent of today matures into the next global star: Khabisha Kvaratskhelia enchants SSC Napoli and Italy.
Nepal – I have long compared him to Diego Armando Maradona. It’s one of the reasons Napoli dreamed of their first scudetto in 33 years. It is possible that his name will soon be mentioned in the same way as the greats of his generation. We are talking about Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.
Outside of Georgia, some football fans may have speech problems. It may have been quickly renamed “Caffaradonna” in Naples for simplicity. But the truth is: you have to remember this player! And the impressive 5: 1 of the Società Sportiva Calcio over Juventus Turin confirmed this fact once again.

future world star? Super talent enchants Italy: Bayern Munich was in their sights
Kvaratskhelia has been on the rise rapidly and has only played in Italy since last summer. However, it was already clear during his time at Rubin Kazan: he would be the one! This is also why his advisor said at the time a year and a half ago: “I am convinced he will end up at Real Madrid or Bayern Munich.” Bayern It is said to have already targeted the Georgian, who is now 21, in 2021. But it was not concrete. At least until today.
Kvaratskhelia left his homeland in the spring of 2019, initially on loan from Lokomotiv Moscow. With the Capitals, he managed to win the Cup outright. In the summer, the left winger then moved to Russia and has since developed into a standout player for Rubin Kazan.
Khvicha Kvaratskhelia: From Georgia through Russia and Georgia to Italy
Farewell came in March 2022: Vladimir Putin decided to attack Ukraine – then football professionals were allowed to leave the Russian Premier League immediately after the decision of FIFA. Kvaratskhelia returned as a starter for Georgia, scoring eight goals and providing two assists in 11 matches for Dinamo Batumi. It was already clear in April that he would play for Napoli in the future. The Italians acquired the offensive services of Al-Jawhara for ten million euros. This investment must pay off.
Kvaratskhelia has now played 20 matches for the Azzurri (as of January 15, 2023). Nine goals and 13 assists speak for themselves. Just like the last score and the table: 5-1 against Juventus Turin, the leaders by nine points. The uncanny talent, who may have surpassed this stature on her way to becoming a future global star, shone again against the old lady: one goal and three assists. A quick dribbler and wing deity have his market value (according to Transfermarkt.de) from 15 to 60 million euros within six months.
Khafisha Kvaratskhelia makes Napoli dream of their first title since 1990
With Kvaratskhelia and his suave attacking partner Victor Osimhen (ex-Wolfsburg), Napoli are currently on their way to becoming Italian champions. It will be the third title in the club’s history. Of course, the first and second seed came with the legend Diego Armando Maradona in 1986/87 and 1989/90. The Argentine is still respected in the third largest city in Italy. And anyone can even begin to follow in his footsteps, compared to him, of course. This also applies to Cavaradona, whose contract – which already runs until 2027 – is set to be extended and upgraded significantly in the near future.
If the two-legged attacking man continues to work his magic, it won’t be long before clubs like Real Madrid or Bayern Munich are back in the ring. Exactly as the chancellor once predicted. In Germany you will hear from Kvaratskhelia again by February 21st at the latest. Then he is in Champions League round of 16 With Napoli at Eintracht Frankfurt. (mind _ mind)
