Victor Casadesus: 'Joaquin Caparros key to Levante move'

Victor Casadesus says that Levante manager Joaquin Caparros played a key role in his decision to join the Spanish outfit.

Victor Casadesus has revealed that Levante manager Joaquin Caparros was one of the key reasons why the forward moved to the Valencia-based outfit.

The 28-year-old had been linked with a number of clubs in the January window, but moved to Levante from Mallorca late in the transfer window.

"I was thrilled by Caparros's call," Casadesus told reporters at a press conference.

"He made a great case for me to come here. My agent handled most of the negotiations but Caparros convinced him that this was the right move for me. As I am very close to my agent I did not doubt him at all.

"The first target here is, as always, to make sure we stay up. After that, we'll take it one game at a time but when you know you are already safe you play with a lot of freedom."

The forward has had recent loan spells at Real Sociedad and Gimnastic.
