Ex-Real Mallorca boss Joaquin Caparros decided the ideal way to motivate his players before a crucial match in 2012 was to show them a porn movie.

Caparros, preparing his players for a match against Athletic Bilbao in December 2012, diverted away from the usual pre-match team talk.

His side were just one spot above the relegation zone and, in a bid to change things up, he put on an adult film, before telling his players to ‘play as hard’ as the movie’s star.

Brazilian defender Anderson Conceicao, who played 16 times for the club that season, told Marca – as reported by The Sun: “In the pre-match team talk, the gaffer (Caparros) began to show us a video.

“Imagine our surprise when we realised we were watching a porn video.

“Our faces must have been a sight because none of us had a clue what we were watching. I guess it was some sort of American film.

“It didn’t last longer than 30 seconds – but it was unforgettable.

“He told us: ‘On the pitch, you need to play as hard as this guy’, and he pointed at the screen.

“The coach used the video to try to lift the mood in the squad. He wanted to see a reaction from us all.

“Unfortunately we could not turn things around that day. We lost 1-0.

“But every time we all talk, we remember that story. It’s impossible not to end up in fits of laughter. It was hilarious.”

Caparros was eventually sacked – and Real Mallorca were relegated.

The 60-year-old Caparros – who also managed Sevilla, Villarreal and Deportivo La Coruna – is currently out of work.
