IK Junkeren have expressed faith in Capasta’s abilities, believing that his knowledge of the game, combined with his enthusiasm, will bring a new perspective to the team. They see his hiring as an opportunity to infuse creativity and innovation into their coaching setup.
Capasta, who holds a FIFA coaching licence, has been coaching since 2018, working with various teams and players to help them develop their skills and improve their performance on the pitch. His knowledge of the game and experience will undoubtedly be valuable in his new important role.
The musician-turned-coach is ecstatic about the opportunity and believes he will succeed.
