Kakhaber Tskhadadze (Georgian: კახაბერ ცხადაძე, born 7 September 1968) is a Georgian football coach and former player.

Club career

Tskhadadze's club career started in 1986 in Dinamo Tbilisi. He became known in Western Europe with German team Eintracht Frankfurt, who he joined in 1992. After a couple of successful seasons he gradually found himself struggling for a first team place, and in 1997 he joined Alania Vladikavkaz. After a short time he was bought by English team Manchester City, where he teamed up with fellow Georgians Murtaz Shelia (a former teammate) and Georgi Kinkladze. Tskhadadze's time at the Manchester club was fraught with injury forcing the team to buy other central defenders such as Andy Morrison. In March 2000 he was released from the club. He then played for Lokomotiv Tbilisi and Anzhi Makhachkala until he retired and was appointed head coach for Dinamo Tbilisi.

International career

In 1990 Tskhadadze played five matches for the Soviet Union national under-21 team, who won the 1990 UEFA European Under-21 Championship tournament. In 1992, he earned six caps and scored one goal for CIS, including one appearance at Euro 92. He later became a part of the recently formed Georgia national team, and played 25 matches in total, captaining the side. His only goal for Georgia came in a 1997 World Cup qualifier against Poland, and his last match was played on 30 May 1998 against Russia.

Managerial career

From March 2005 Kakhaber was appointed as Head coach of FC Dinamo Tbilisi and won the Georgian Championship and Supercup in the same year.

In January 2006 he became the manager of FC Sioni Bolnisi and won the first ever Championship trophy for the club.

Year 2009 Kakhaber Tskhadadze Started coaching Inter Baku and won the Azerbaijan Premier League title in his first year at the club, following up with winning the CIS cup in 2011.

In December 2014, he was appointed as the new coach of Georgia.[1]

On 7 April 2016, Tskhadadze was appointed as manager of FC Kairat.[2] He managed to win the Kazakhstan Supercup and led the team to the Kazakhstan cup final, but resigned just before the team won the trophy. Tskhadadze resigned as manager of Kairat on 21 July 2017 following their elimination from the Europa League.[3]

His second spell at Dinamo Tbilisi began in May 2021, which lasted one year.[4]

Personal life

Tskhadadze is the father of former Georgian national team player Bachana Tskhadadze.[5]
