Mário Rogério Reis Micale (born 28 March 1969), known as Rogério Micale, is a Brazilian retired footballer who played as a goalkeeper, and is a manager of Indian Super League club NorthEast United FC


Micale was born in Salvador, Bahia, but moved to Paraná state during his teens. Known as Aranha during his playing days, he began his career at Portuguesa Londrinense.

Micale also represented Londrina, Apucarana and Operário Ferroviário before retiring at the age of just 23. He started his managerial career in 1999 with his first club Portuguesa, taking charge of the club's youth setup.

Micale subsequently spent the vast majority of his career in charge of youth sides, notably Figueirense and Atlético Mineiro. On 31 December 2010, he was appointed manager of Grêmio Prudente,[1] but his reign only lasted 21 days.[2] He subsequently returned to Atlético and its youth team.

On 9 May 2015, Micale was named manager of Brazil under-20s, replacing Alexandre Gallo.[3] He achieved a second place in the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup, and also was the manager of the under-23s during the 2015 Pan American Games and the 2016 Summer Olympics, winning the latter for the first time in the country's history.[4]
