Who is Óscar Tabárez?

Óscar Wáshington Tabárez Sclavo, known as El Maestro is an Uruguayan football manager and former defender, who currently is the manager of the Uruguay national team.

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.
