Caparros to step down as Sevilla coach


Sevilla’s Joaquin Caparros is stepping down as manager but will stay on as part of the technical staff, the Liga club said in a statement on Wednesday.

The 64-year-old, appointed for a third spell in March following Pablo Machin’s sacking, met club President Jose Castro and Sporting Director Monchi during Sevilla’s post-season tour of Tanzania where the decision was reached by all parties.

“From the 1919/20 season, the current coach will take up a prominent role in the sporting direction of Sevilla, which is headed up by Monchi,” read a club statement.

The club did not give any details on a replacement.

Caparros has been in charge of the five-time Europa League winners for 167 games and led the club to a sixth-place finish in LaLiga this season and Europa League qualification.

They missed out on a Champions League spot by two points after losing two of their last three games of the campaign.

Caparros said last month that he had been diagnosed with leukaemia but vowed to continue in his job.
