Joaquin Caparros was coy about a move to Athletic Bilbao yesterday after confirming his departure from Deportivo La Coruna.

"Athletic is a club with very special characteristics. Its fans have great emotion, something that is being lost in the world of football," said Caparros.

"I do not have anything with any club and there are not many benches left free, but I want to continue in Spain. My idea is to go to a team where they let me work and enjoy my job."
