Mendilibar: Levante a serious club

Jose Luis Mendilibar has spoken of his happiness at being appointed the new Levante Coach, praising the attitude of the club.

Mendilibar replaces the Granada-bound Joaquin Caparros, having previously been in charge of Osasuna until last September.

Marca reports he was confirmed as Les Granotes new boss last night and said he is pleased to be on the bench.

“Levante is a serious club, for sure, they know what they want, what they have, and that’s important,” the 53-year-old added.

“And then being able to stay in the Primera.

“The last three Coaches have done well. The stakes were high and they did it or equalled it. I hope I can too.

“I hope I can reciprocate the trust they have put in me. It’s true that since they came up they have had some very good seasons and hopefully it stays that way.”
