Joaquin Caparros named new coach of Osasuna

Joaquin Caparros has been named new coach of Osasuna.

Caparros has been appointed as the new head coach of Osasuna, replacing Enrique Martin.

Martin left the El Sadar with Osasuna on seven points from 11 La Liga matches, three points shy of safety, and former Sevilla, Deportivo la Coruna and Athletic Bilbao boss Caparros has been chosen as the man to guide them away from relegation.

"Osasuna has reached an agreement with coach Joaquin Caparros until 30 June 2018," a club statement read.

The 61-year-old's first competitive match in charge of Los Rojillos will come at fellow strugglers Leganes on November 21 as he returns to work for the first time since leaving Granada in January 2015.
