Mallorca sack coach Caparros

Real Mallorca coach Joaquin Caparros has been sacked by the club after his side slipped just one point off bottom place in La Liga following Sunday's 3-0 defeat to Real Sociedad.

Caparros had his contract extended last year after leading Mallorca to an eighth-place finish in the 2011/12 season, but the Islanders have been unable to replicate that finish with just four wins so far this term.

Mallorca's acting president Llorenc Serra Ferrer confirmed Caparros's departure, admitting it was a tough decision to remove the respected coach and revealing talks to find his successor are already underway.

"I respect Caparros so much. I know that we have sacked a great coach," Serra Ferrer said. "We talked a lot about the situation that the team was in and we reached the conclusion that something was needed to to give us a lift for the rest of the season and achieve our aim of staying in the division.

"I would like to thank Joaquin and his coaching staff for their honour, dedication, desire and for helping the club grow in every sense.

"We have opened channels to talk with some trainers, but we do not have a name. Now we do not want to take such an important decision in a hurry and there are still 48 points to play for."
