WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH CAPARROS?

09 May 2006
Is he going out? or is he staying? These are the questions that everybody in Deportivo is asking right now. His explosive declarations after the disappointing defeat against Athletic started the speculation about his exit. On the next day he changed his speech, but the rumours continued, now he has been linked with Osasuna.

After the latest defeat at the Riazor, Caparr??s said on local radio: "I don't know if I have the illusion to lead a new project in Deportivo." A phrase that has been understood as his desire of leaving the club. But, next day he changed his declarations, the Sevillan coach assured that "he still have the illusion to direct the club" and also appointed that "he sees himself directing Deportivo during the pre-season."

But the situation has not ended yet, papers like Marca and Noticas de Navarra have reported that Osasuna is following him since some weeks ago, it's almost a fact that Javier Aguirre will change his place in Osasuna for the bench of Atl?©tico Madrid. For this reason the Pamplona's club is searching for a substitute, and it seems that the number one candidate is Caparr??s.

It has been reported that Osasuna's president, Patxi Izco, has maintained conversations with Caparr??s, another curious thing is that the agent of the Sevillan coach is in La Coru?±a, and some reporters believes that he's negotiating the cancellation of Caparr??s' contract. The Utrera-born trainer signed an extension of two years in January, but lately he has complained about several issues affecting his work.

The problems working with Fabril, the absences of the signings that he requested, the renovation of his assistances (a fact that was fulfilled already), and the renewal of Molina and V?­ctor were some of the themes that Caparr??s protested a few weeks ago. He believes that the club has a lack of compromise with his petitions an asked for a meeting with the president.

The situation seemed to be solved after a meeting between Caparr??s and Lendoiro, but the declarations made by Depor’s coach on Sunday appoints that some issues aren't closed yet. For the moment it isn't known if Caparr??s is seriously thinking in leaving the club, the same coach and Patxi Izco (Osasuna's president) have denial of any contact between them. What seems clear is that the attention is focused in Depor's bench while the team will play a crucial game on the pitch this Saturday.
