Caparros: Mallorca goals will come

Real Mallorca boss Joaquin Caparros says he is unconcerned at his team’s lack of goals so far in pre-season.

Los Bermellones have not scored in 270 minutes of football, having lost 1-0 to Standard Liege and played out two scoreless draws with PAOK Thessaloniki and Feyenoord, but the 56-year-old believes it is just a matter of time before his players start to hit the back of the net.

“The goals will come. I’m sure we are team that will not find it difficult to score but we will work on it.

“Pre-seasons are always hard and it is perfectly normal for this kind of situation to occur,” he told a Press conference.

Caparros also spoke of the possible departure of central defender Ivan Ramis and if he would be strengthening the team over the coming weeks.

“If a team pays Ramis’ buy-out clause then there is nothing else to say.

“These things are not easy and the club is adamant that the €6m clause must be paid, but it is something that must be resolved for the good of everyone.

“Regardless of Ramis’ circumstances, Lorenzo [Serra Ferrer] and I have daily conversations about centre-backs and, although we would like to bring somebody in, if we have to wait then that is what we must do,” he added.
