Ex-Rangers boss Caixinha offered chance to manage massive club - report

Former Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha has been offered the chance to return to Mexico to manage C.D Guadalajara (Chivas), according to the Scottish Sun.

50-year-old Caixinha had an unsuccessful stint in the Ibrox hot seat in 2017 and since then, has managed Cruz Azul and Al-Shabab.

However, he’s been out of the game since being sacked by the latter club in January.

Caixinha was ridiculed in the media for his failings in Scotland but it appears that he’s still a man in demand in North America, as he’s reportedly been offered the chance to take the reins at Guadalajara.

A 2016 study by Euroamericas Sport Marketing Spain found Chivas to be the most popular club in Mexico [Milenio.com] but they haven’t won any major silverware since 2018 and are currently without a permanent manager.

Marcelo Michel Leano was appointed interim boss following the sacking of Víctor Manuel Vucetich last month, but it’s suggested that the post is Caixinha’s if he wants it.

The former Gers boss is said to be weighing up his options but if he does take the job, it’ll be his third in the country following stints with Santos Laguna and Cruz Azul.

He’s won five trophies in Mexico – three at Santos Laguna and two at Cruz Azul – but none elsewhere.
