An interesting read about our new Gaffer


Recommended Posts

Just stumbled across this, it provides a bit of insight into PC without the usual Scottish media slant on it. 

Might explain the method behind some of his decisions, he seems to do things his way and even though it can rub some people up the wrong way it's all part of the plan. 

Something that stuck out for me was that after winning the Mexican cup for the first time in the club's history in 2014 he did a massive restructure reducing the average age to 23.5 and getting rid of some of the club's most influential players. Well it turned out to be a master stroke because the following season he won the Campeón de Campeones which is the highest honour in Mexican football as far as I can tell and again this was the first time in the club's history. 

This guy could be the real deal, here's hoping anyway.

I take it 'Google Translate' had a hand in putting that into English?

It was a very hard read, and I couldn't tell if his successes were good, bad, or indifferent.

He did appear to do well in Mexico, but Rony done well in other leagues before signing for them.

Since when were successes bad? Some people are determined to put a negative spin on anything. The guy done well and doesn't take prisoners, it's good to know and I found it pretty interesting to read. 

Why would you feel the need to throw in the comparison to Delia? He's got fuck all to do with us. Compare him to our old managers but not theirs ffs. 

You could out a negative spin on finding a tenner. Brighten up a bit

:lol: the guy made a valid point. It's the Mexican league. He did well with Santos Laguna but chat like "the real deal" is so far off the mark at this stage. Deila won the Tippeligaen with a totally unfancied team and you had articles like this is in recent memory:

http://outsideoftheboot.com/2015/07/31/tactical-philosophy-ronny-deila/ 

He's absolutely a fair comparison. Let's hope Caixinha can do better than that cunt.

It's a pretty negative take on a wholly positive article. 

Actually I said I hoped he would be 'the real deal', it's clearly far too early to know but fuck me for trying to look on the bright side. Positivity obviously doesn't belong here.

If you only wanted positive, happy, forward-looking responses when we're sitting 3rd in the league having dropped points to Motherwell and Killie in the past week then you're probably on some trip mate.

I'm cautious for next season but hopeful - I was just saying that thewhitesettler's comparison was a wholly appropriate one.

All the more reason to get behind him. 

I agree there are comparisons that can be drawn but it's still a pretty negative take on it. There was even an negative take to his successes.

BIOGRAPHY

Pedro Caixinha is currently the head coach of Al-Gharafa Sports Club. He decided to quit from the Club Santos Laguna’s head coach position, on the past 15th of August, after won all the Mexican trophies last season 2014/15 (Mexican Cup Apertura 2014, Mexican League Clausura 2015, and Mexican “Campeón de Campeones” 2015), as well as achieved the final of CONCACAF Champions League 2013.

In addition to academic License and Master Degree in Sports Science (namely in Methodology of Football Training), Pedro Caixinha have also the highest international level License for a Football Coach <UEFA PRO>, taken at the F.P.F. – Portuguese Football Federation.

Pedro started his career as Head Coach in the year 1999 (with 28 years of age), in his hometown football club C. D. Beja, coaching the young and the main teams during a period of 4 years. After that, he moved to the neighbor city of Vidigueira, to coach C. F. Vasco da Gama during 1 year, when he traveled to Lisbon, to make part of the world-renowned Scouting Department of Sporting Clube de Portugal, club where he started to work as Assistant Coach as well, in 2004.

After Sporting C.P. reached the final of the UEFA Cup, he leaved the club and continued to work as Assistant Coach of José Peseiro in Al-Hilal F. C. of Saudi Arabia, Panathinaikos of Greece, Rapid Bucharest of Romania and National Team of Saudi Arabia where, besides Assistant of the main National Team, he was challenged to take charge of the K.S.A. Olympic Team in 2010, leading the “Project LONDON 2012”, when he received an invitation to return to Portugal and start coaching at the highest level, as Head Coach, in the Super League club U. D. Leiria. One year later he was asked to lead the project of the C. D. Nacional of Madeira.

On December 2012, Pedro Caixinha signed with Club Santos Laguna of Mexico and Managed the team during almost 3 years, until August 2015.

During the first period of one and half years in charge of the team (3 tournaments), he achieved the Playoffs (La Liguilla) of the Mexican League (LigaMX), 3 consecutive times, reaching always the semifinals of the competition.

Meanwhile, he qualified the club to the Final of the CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2013 and achieved the historical qualification for the CONMEBOL COPA LIBERTADORES 2014 (the 2nd time in the history of the club Santos Laguna, 10 years after their 1st and unique participation until that moment).

At the end of the season 2013/14, Pedro Caixinha was on the “Football Coach World Ranking”:

The 36th best football coach of the world

The 3rd best Portuguese football coach working worldwide

Following the Apertura 2014 tournament, on October 2014, he achieved the title of CopaMX (MEXICAN CUP), for the first time ever, in the history of the Club.

Showing and proving the excellence of the work made by Pedro Caixinha’s coach team, Club Santos Laguna was named “the 2014 BEST CLUB of all CONCACAF region”, by the IFFHS (International Federation of Football History and Statistics) on the “Club World Ranking 2014” annual report, published on January 13, 2015, where Club Santos Laguna is listed, for the first time ever, in the group of the best 100 clubs of the world, coming in the 58th position, of the Best Clubs of the World.

Following the amazing achievements of 2014 described above, Pedro Caixinha started 2015 doing a deep restructuring/renewal on the squad, where the most valuable, experimented and influential players of the team left the club, transforming the team to the youngest squad of the LigaMX (average 23,5 YO). Even so, he achieved sensationally the title of Champion of LigaMX (MEXICAN LEAGUE)!

With this title, Pedro Caixinha is the most victorious coach in the history of the club and the first European coach to win the LigaMX in the last 35 years!

Personally, he was awarded by the LigaMX (Mexican League) with the Trophy of the Best Coach in Mexico!

Immediately after that, in the beginning of Apertura 2015, Pedro Caixinha achieved another historical Trophy with Club Santos Laguna, the Campeón de Campeones 2015 (1st time ever in the history of the Club), beating America FC in the Final, and fixing 3 Stars with his name in Santos Laguna’s Stadium!

After this last achievement, Pedro Caixinha decided to leave the Club Santos Laguna, on August 15th, 2015…

Pedro Caixinha, is known for his strong and determined character, with great leadership and work spirit (as a team and for the team) where he shows his immense entrepreneurial capacity, putting in practice a modern and innovative training methodology, idealizing, using and taking advantage of new technologies that we currently have available and that are both pleasing to all athletes, motivating and strengthening the unity of the working group, thereby enhancing the final results to be achieved.

His strongest concept is “dominating all the moments of the game”.

Nothing the matter with that. His determined character is obvious and that's why he was selected.

I enjoyed reading that  lots of positives given time i'm sure he  will sort the squad out .

Looks like he's not compelled to have favourites  and that is a good example after he won the mexican cup he got rid of some of the most senior players .

if he is the really is  the real deal i expect players like  Waggy Kiernan and Halliday skelped in the summer

Just to clarify, Winning the clausura in 2015 was a big thing which allowed santos to qualify for the Mexican champions league. The other two are still good achievements but they are not the elite tournaments.

one is a domestic cup that doesn't include the Mexican champions league team for that year. Think Scottish league cup without Celtic, Aberdeen, st Johnstone and hearts.

 The other is like a domestic European super cup which disappeared for a good number of years before Pedro and santos won it in 15.

 

like I said, the clausura is the schievement that should give us strong hope!

A good read . 

Folk may criticise it's the Mexican league , I don't know too much about it , but I'll bet it's a lot higher quality than the spfl. 

Thinking positively  , I see PC having experience from Portugal , Mexico and the Middle East as a great benefit . Playing the same ' British style ' system will just play into c....c's hands . We can't match them for finances , so we have to think outside the box and come up with something different . With a bit of luck PC's experience on his travels may give us just that .

Cheers for clearing that up mate, my knowledge of Mexican football isn't great. 

I was dubious at first but the more I learn about this guy the more optimistic I'm feeling, hopefully feeling even more optimistic by about 2.30 today :)

It's not an article - it's a bio, written by his employer to put him in as positive a light as possible, to promote the Portuguese University Coaching course he's involved in.

Can't take anything from it except the (unchecked) stats.

Who knows the bheggars brought in an unknown quantity in wim jansen when we were going for 10INAR, who had basically won hee haw except a couple of cups with Feyenoord, although we didn't help ourselves that season we tripped up and he won it and disappeared into obscurity after one season, if Pedro is a one season wonder that'll be enough for the moment!

Hes managed and coached with success in several leagues in and countries. "Rony" hasn't, he was in charge of one side for years before he came here.
