Caparros given Mallorca job

Joaquin Caparros has been unveiled as the new coach of Real Mallorca.

Caparros, 55, succeeds Michael Laudrup, who stepped down last week just five games into the new La Liga season.

''My team and I are willing to become fully involved in the project. We guarantee that we will give everything 25 hours a day, not 24,'' Caparros was quoted as saying at his presentation by Spanish newspaper AS.

Caparros explained he penned a nine-month deal ''because it is important that the two parties, the coaching staff and the board, know where we stand''.

He added: ''Only at Athletic did they sign me for three years. At other clubs I've been signed for one season. We will give it time and we will see.''

Caparros briefly took the reins at Neuchatel Xamax in July but lasted only five games with the chaotic Swiss club.

''I come to get involved. All I want is to train. It is a privilege that Mallorca has remembered me,'' said the Andalusian, who will work alongside assistant coach Luci Martin and fitness coach Aurelio Martin. ''Going forward, collective effort and unity is a must to win in this league.

''What is clear is that we all think and act as a team - and I include managers, players, fans, media - for the good of Mallorca. I come with a lot of hope. It's a nice challenge. We enjoy our profession, and while the other teams are motivated, we have to have at least the same motivation or more.''

Interim boss Miguel Angel Nadal was in charge for Saturday's 2-2 draw with Osasuna - a result that left Mallorca ninth in the standings on seven points.

Caparros, who will work alongside assistant coach Luci Martin and fitness coach Aurelio Martin, led Athletic Bilbao to a sixth-placed finish in La Liga last season before leaving the Basque club after four years in charge.

He added: ''To make Mallorca greater we have to accept criticism, because in football it is inevitable and somebody who cannot take it should not be in this profession.''

Mallorca vice-president Lorenzo Serra Ferrer announced on Monday night the club had reached an initial agreement with Caparros, with the finishing touches put on the deal on Tuesday before he was presented at the Iberostar Stadium.

Serra Ferrer hailed his new appointment as ''a technician of prestige with a long history''.

He added: ''I've known him for many years. He's involved in grassroots football, training players for the future, and it is a real pleasure for us to work with him.''

Caparros' previous clubs include Villarreal, Sevilla, Deportivo La Coruna and Athletic Bilbao, and he has signed a contract until June 30, 2012.
