Gilson Kleina (born 30 March 1968) is a Brazilian football manager, currently in charge of Criciúma.

Managerial career[edit]

Born in Curitiba, Kleina started his career at Coritiba's youth setup, as a fitness coach. He later acted as Abel Braga's assistant at the same club, also having stints at Olympique de Marseille and Atléttico Mineiro. His first managerial experience occurred in 2001, with Vila Nova.[1]

After another spell as Braga's assistant at Botafogo, Kleina took over Iraty in 2002, and subsequently was in charge of Criciúma,[2] Paraná (three stints), Iraty,[3] Caldense, Cianorte, Paysandu,[4] Coruripe, Gama,[5] Ipatinga, Caxias and Vila Nova.

On 27 August 2009, Kleina signed with Duque de Caxias Futebol Clube, as a replacement to Rodney Gonçalves.[6] After stints at Boavista and Ipatinga, he returned to the club on 7 June 2010.[7]

In November 2010, Kleina was appointed manager of Ponte Preta. He achieved promotion from the Série B in the end of the following year, taking the club to the main category after a six-year absence.

On 19 September 2012, Kleina was named Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras manager, in the place of fired Luiz Felipe Scolari.[8] Despite suffering relegation, he brought back the club to the first division as champions, but was still sacked on 8 May 2014.[9]

On 13 August 2014, Kleina was appointed at the helm of Bahia,[10] but resigned just three months later.[11] The following 24 March, he was announced at Avaí.[12]

On 11 December 2015, Kleina was presented at his first club Coritiba, now as first team manager.[13] He left the club the following 2 June,[14] and was named Goiás manager on 5 September.[15]

On 23 March 2017, Kleina returned to Ponte Preta,[16] but was relieved from his duties on 16 September.[17] On 16 October, he was named Chapecoense manager.[18]

Kleina was sacked by Chape on 6 August 2018, with the club seriously threatened with relegation.[19] On 2 October, he returned to Ponte in the place of sacked Marcelo Chamusca.
