Oswaldo de Oliveira

Oswaldo de Oliveira Filho (born 5 December 1950), commonly known as Oswaldo de Oliveira, is a Brazilian football manager, currently in charge of Flamengo.

Manager career

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Oswaldo de Oliveira became the first team coach for Corinthians in 1999 when Vanderlei Luxemburgo left the club to take the Brazil National Team manager role. Oliveira led the club to win the São Paulo State Championship and the Brazilian Série A that same year. In 2000, he made history by taking the first FIFA Club World Championship.

After leaving Corinthians, Oliveira would coach Brazilian teams Vasco, Fluminense, São Paulo, Flamengo, Vitória, Santos, Fluminense and Cruzeiro. The only title at this period would come with São Paulo, the 2002 São Paulo State Super Championship. After tricolor quit in Campeonato Brasileiro de 2002, against Santos, and lose the final of Campeonato Paulista de 2003 for Corinthians, Oliveira was dismissed because of bad results. He also had a short spell at Al-Ahli of Qatar.

In 2007 Oliveira started to coach J. League side Kashima Antlers. So far he has had a quite successful managerial career in Japan, winning three J. League Division 1 titles, one Emperor's Cup, one Japanese Super Cup. In 2009 he became the first J. League manager to be named J. League Manager of the Year three times. In 2012, Oliveira returned to managing in Brazil when he became the manager of Rio de Janeiro side Botafogo. In the 2013 season, he led Botafogo to 4th place in the league, qualifying the team for the Copa Libertadores. After the 2013 season, Oliveira was hired by fellow Brazilian side Santos FC. In 2015, he will be coaching Palmeiras, which will make him the first manager to have worked with all four main teams of São Paulo (Corinthians, Palmeiras, Santos and São Paulo) and four main teams of Rio de Janeiro (Botafogo, Flamengo, Fluminense and Vasco).[1]
