West Brom are reportedly expected to announce Carlos Corberan as their new manager. The Spaniard has been available since his sacking by Olympiacos last month.
The Athletic have reported that the Baggies have chosen him as the man they want to replace Steve Bruce. The Midlands outfit have strugged so far this season in the Championship and are currently sat in the relegation zone.
West Brom decision
Corberan guided Huddersfield Town to the play-off final last term but his side were denied promotion to the Premier League after losing Nottingham Forest at Wembley. He took over the Terriers in 2020 and they finished 20th in his first campaign in charge before their impressive rise into the top six.
The 39-year-old, who was a goalkeeper before deciding to focus on coaching at the age of just 23, made the decision to leave Yorkshire over the summer. He then landed the Olympiacos job but lasted just 11 games in Greece and is now poised to return to England.
He had spells at Alcorcón, Al Nassr, Doxa Katokopias and Ermis Aradippou before taking the Leeds United U23s role in 2017. The Whites’ popular former manager Marcelo Bielsa then promoted him to the first-team coaching staff a few years later before he departed Elland Road to pursue being a number one again.
West Brom now beckons for Corberan and he will be looking to turn their fortunes around. They were beaten 2-1 away at Millwall yesterday.
