Óscar Wáshington Tabárez Sclavo (American Spanish: ; born 3 March 1947), known as El Maestro (The Teacher), is a Uruguayan football manager and former footballer, who played as a defender. He is currently the manager of the Uruguay national team.

After an unassuming career as a player and after working as a primary school teacher, he embarked on an extensive coaching career which has lasted more than 30 years and included coaching teams in Colombia, Argentina, Italy and Spain. Tabárez managed the Uruguay national football team from 1988–1990, returning to the job for a second time in 2006. He led the team to fourth place in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and to victory in the 2011 Copa América.

Playing career

During his 12-year senior career, Tabárez played mainly for modest clubs, representing Sud América, Sportivo Italiano (Argentina), Montevideo Wanderers, Fénix, Puebla in Mexico and Bella Vista, retiring at the age of 32.

Managerial career

In 1980, a year after retiring as a player, Tabárez took up coaching at Bella Vista. The following year, he was named the Uruguay under-20s manager. He would coach the side on two separate occasions. He subsequently worked in many clubs in his country, without settling anywhere. However, in 1987, he led national giants C.A. Peñarol to their fifth Copa Libertadores, beating América de Cali. This success was fundamental in his appointment as manager of the Uruguayan national team, which he led to the Round of 16 of the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy, losing against the hosts. He later coached Argentine League giants Boca Juniors for two years.

In 1994 Tabárez moved to Italy to manage Serie A side Cagliari Calcio. After leading them to ninth place in the 1994–95 season and tenth place in the 1995–96 season, Tabárez was hired by A.C. Milan, but his spell would only last a few months: after an Italian Supercup defeat against ACF Fiorentina, at the San Siro, a 2–3 loss at Piacenza Calcio for the league cost him his position. He was replaced by Arrigo Sacchi, and the Rossoneri eventually finished 11th.[2]

Tabárez then worked with Real Oviedo in Spain, with the Asturias club eventually only maintaining top division status in the promotion/relegation play-offs against UD Las Palmas, winning 4–3 on aggregate. He then returned to Cagliari, being sacked after one draw and three losses.

After two years in Argentina, with Club Atlético Vélez Sársfield and Boca, Tabárez spent four years away from football management. In 2006, after Uruguay had failed to qualify for three out of the preceding four FIFA World Cups, he took charge of the national team.[3] His first tournament saw the side take fourth place in the 2007 Copa América, in Venezuela.

After a successful play-off against Costa Rica, Tabárez and the Charrúas qualified for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa,first winning group A (Uruguay did not win its group since 1954 FIFA World Cup in Switzerland, 56 years prior). In South Africa the national team reached the semi-finals for the first time in 40 years, only conceding five goals in six matches until that point. Uruguay ended the competition in fourth place, after a 2–3 defeat against Germany.[4]

In the 2011 Copa América Tabárez led Uruguay to its 15th victory in the tournament, with the national side winning three games and drawing three in Argentina, and only conceding three goals. With these wins, Uruguay became the country with the most wins in the history of the Copa America. In 2011 and 2012, under Tabárez's leadership, Uruguay remained undefeated in 18 consecutive games (from June 2011 to August 2012), a national team record previously set byJuan Carlos Corazzo . Tabárez then led Uruguay in its qualification to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, defeating Jordan in two play-off games, and thus becoming the first Uruguayan manager to do so in two consecutive World Cups. In Brazil, after an opening defeat to Costa Rica (3–1), followed by two wins (2–1 vs England, 1–0 vs Italy) to finish its group stage, Uruguay reached the round of 16th, the third time for Tabárez with Uruguay in a World Cup. This also marked the first time an Uruguayan team defeated a European opponent for the first time in 44 years, the last time being a win against the Soviet Union during the 1970 FIFA World Cup in Mexico. Without Luis Suarez in the lineup, Uruguay lost to Colombia (0-2) in the round of 16, marking an unusual early world cup exit for the Uruguayan side. On June 19th the Asociación Uruguaya de Fútbol made a video tribute to celebrate 150 games of Tabárez as National Team Manager. After the 2015 Copa América in Chile, he was suspended for 3 official games for the incidents of the Chile-Uruguay match, in which Edinson Cavani was suspended for 2 games also. Despite this, and with the help of Celso Otero assisting in the bench, Uruguay won its first two games in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification, the first time since the 1966 FIFA World Cup qualification, and wining for the first time in La Paz against Bolivia.
