Caparrós to replace Quique next season?

Hours before Saturday’s match against Málaga kicked off, Spanish radio station COPE reported that Joaquín Caparrós will take over as Atlético head coach for next season. The station also claimed that Caparrós was chosen by former Atleti left back Toni Muñoz, purportedly set to be named Jesús García Pitarch’s successor as the club’s sporting director.

Atlético approach Joaquín Caparrós

Atlético have approached Athletic Bilbao manager Joaquín Caparrós about next year’s coaching job, which will almost surely be left vacant by current Rojiblanco manager Quique Sanchez Flores at the end of this season. Caparrós is well-liked by club directors, and is said to be interested in managing a team of Atleti’s stature.
