Joaquin Caparros has been named new coach of 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.

"He comes from a Levante team that had a great season.

"He comes to our club to bring, hope, energy and motivation so we can have a great campaign next season."
