Coach Joaquin Caparros will coach Levante in the next season, 2013-2014, following the agreement reached between the Valencian club and the Andalusian coach, as reported by Levante on Sunday.
Caparros (Utrera, 1955) will coach Levante accompanied by a coaching body composed of Luciano Martin Toscano, last with the club as a player in the 1999-2000 season, Lluis Llopis, goalkeeping, and Bernardo Requena, responsible for the physical training.
