When Sevilla visited Parkhead in 2004 for Henrik Larsson’s testimonial, the seasoned veteran was in charge.
In Henrik’s farewell game, a sell-out crowd witnessed an emotional victory for the Celts thanks to a Chris Sutton goal.
Caparros’ spell at Sevilla was only one of 20 clubs he has led in a career that has included stints at Villarreal, Athletic Bilbao, and Osasuna, to mention a few.
Nonetheless, his one-off experience at Celtic Park stands out for him, as the atmosphere and support of the Parkhead faithful left him speechless.
“It was a very remarkable moment for me,” Caparros remarked, according to Football Scotland. The stadium and the Celtic supporters both impressed me because everyone in the stadium seemed to be wearing a Celtic jersey for the match.
“It was such a remarkable experience for me and a wonderful recollection from my professional life.”
