Gaby Cairo also wants to make history as a manager. The Argentine led his men to their first important title, the King’s Cup, since he was appointed to the Barça Sorli Discau bench.

This isn’t the only title Cairo has claimed this season. The manager won the Spanish Super Cup in October against Reus. It has only taken the manager a couple of months to claim his second title, and he’s on track to winning his third seeing that Barça is atop the OK Liga with a 10 point advantage over the second place team, Liceo Colinasa. So far in the league, Barça has won 14 games and drawn 1 out of 15 matches played.

Successful career as a player

Gaby Cairo’s career as a player is impressive. The Argentine won 8 OK Ligas, 5 European Cups, 4 European Super Cups, 3 Iberian Cups, 4 King’s Cups, 1 Intercontinental Cup, 1 Cup of Nations, 4 Catalan Leagues, and 4 International Vigo Trophies as an Azulgrana player. This incredible list of honours grows even more if we add up his achievements in Italy and Spain (Igualada and Reus). Cairo also scored a handful of goals in his 12 seasons as a Barça player (621).

He was also successful for Argentina. Cairo was a key part in the South American side’s most glorious era; Argentina won the gold medal in the Barcelona Olympic Games, World Cups and Pan-American championships.
