Rangers flop Pedro Caixinha hints at imminent return to football after departing previous club in August

Rangers flop Pedro Caixinha has hinted that he could be set for a quick return to football after his sacking by Liga MX side Cruz Azul with Major League Soccer his likely destination.

Caixinha was sacked by the Mexicans in August after failing to bring success to Cruz Azul and the Portuguese claimed he will have “news about a new job” in the coming days.

The former Rangers boss claimed he has offers from American sides as well as another opportunity in Mexico and admits that MLS “excites” him a lot.

“I should have news about a new job in the next few days. The MLS is a league that excites me a lot because of its organisation, ambition and growth,” Caixinha said, as quoted by the Daily Record.

“It’s a league I have studied closely and know well.

“I have offers to go there or to go to another club in Mexico and all will be revealed soon.”

With MLS just about to begin it’s post-season playoffs, it’ll be interesting to see if Caixinha does land in the US.

There are a host of ex-Gers involved in various roles across the league with Carlos Bocanegra and Claudio Reyna both in executive roles, Ale Bedoya playing for Philadelphia Union, Danny Wilson with Colorado Rapids and DaMarcus Beasley just retiring in the last few days.

If Caixinha does get the chance to manage in MLS, it’ll be interesting to see how he copes with the varying quality of players at his disposal and whether it blows up in his face like at Rangers.
