Carlos Humberto Paredes Monges (Spanish pronunciation: ; born 16 July 1976 in Asunción, Paraguay) is a Paraguayan footballer who currently plays as a defensive midfielder for Olimpia Asunción. His style of play has led the Paraguayan media to call him the "Master of the Midfield". Paredes plays defensive midfield, though he can also play as centre-forward, being a lethal header. He also has exceptional leadership capabilities on the field, where he is constantly marshalling instructions to the rest of the team.
