Joaquín Caparrós spoke to the press for the first time yesterday since the appointment of Pablo Machín as new Sevilla manager: "He's a very prepared coach, with a huge amount of potential and has had a magnificent season. We're going to support him. He comes to a great club, with a lot of excitement and we're going to give him all we can because his successes will be the successes of Sevillismo".
On the choice of the manager, he said: "the Club had a profile they were looking for and he fitted the characteristics". He also went on to talk about Marchena and Gallardo, who have joined his scouting set-up: "Marchena is a very prepared guy with a lot of experience. He's from the Sevilla academy and he's a Sevillista. He's already contributed a lot. Paco Gallardo hasn't been here much time but he's helping us maintain that technical set-up".
