Mallorca set to extend Caparrós contract
Real Mallorca are expected to be able to offer Head Coach Joaquín Caparrós a contract extension in April, according to reports. The 56-year-old joined Los Bermellones in October until the end of the season on a £23,500 per week deal after Michael Laudrup left the club the previous month.
Under the tenure of Caparrós, the club has seen a remarkable improvement in results despite the institutional crisis which refuses to go away. And after impressive victories over Real Sociedad, Villarreal and Atlético Madrid, Mallorca find themselves in 13th place in La Liga – 9 points clear of the relegation zone with 11 games to play. And just 6 points from the European positions.
There have been informal discussions between Sporting Director Llorenç Serra Ferrer and Caparrós. The extension is expected to be either two or three years with his renewal seen as an investment rather than a major expense. Caparrós is seen as the figurehead behind Mallorca’s sporting stability and his ideologies are in line with the club’s business plan.
