Caparros named Granada boss

Joaquin Caparros arrives from Levante.

Joaquin Caparros has made a swift return to Primera Division management by taking the head coach's role at Granada.

The well-travelled 58-year-old left Levante on Tuesday after talks over a contract extension broke down and he has now replaced Lucas Alcaraz at Granada.

A statement published on the Andalusian club's official website read: "Sevillan coach Joaquin Caparros will take charge of Granada for the next two seasons. The club and coach reserve the option to extend the contract into a third year.''

Caparros, who can also number Real Mallorca, Athletic Bilbao and Villarreal among his former clubs, guided Levante to a 10th-placed finish in the 2013-14 La Liga season.

His principal career achievements include steering Sevilla into the top flight in 2001 and overseeing Athletic Bilbao's run to the final of the Copa del Rey in 2010.

"He comes from a Levante team that had a great season,'' Granada's statement continued. "He comes to our club to bring, hope, energy and motivation so we can have a great campaign next season.''

Caparros replaces 47-year-old Alcaraz, who decided to step down as head coach last week having secured Granada's future in La Liga with a final-day victory at Real Valladolid.
