Eduardo Alexandre Baptista (born 30 March 1970), known as Eduardo Baptista, is a Brazilian football manager, currently in charge of Sport Recife.

Career

Born in Campinas, São Paulo, Baptista started playing for Clube Atlético Juventus, as a central defender. However, due to his lack of temper on the field, he was advised to leave football by his father, Nelsinho.[1]

In 2002, after spells at clubs in his native state, Baptista joined his father's staff at Goiás, as a fitness coach. The duo remained together for the following nine years, only splitting due to the Japanese tsunami in 2011, when both were at Kashiwa Reysol; Eduardo subsequently returned to Sport (club which he already worked from 2007 to 2009) while Nelsinho remained at Kashiwa.[1]

On 31 January 2014 Baptista was appointed interim manager, replacing fired Geninho.[2] On 14 February he was definitely appointed as manager,[3] and led the side to both Campeonato Pernambucano and Copa do Nordeste winning campaigns.

On 17 September 2015, Baptista left Sport and was appointed at Fluminense, replacing fired Enderson Moreira.[4]

Personal life

Baptista is the son of Nelsinho Baptista, who is also a manager.[5]
