West Bromwich Albion’s promotion rivals Huddersfield Town have faced a huge blow ahead of their 2022/23 Championship campaign.

On a day of resignations across the political landscape in the UK, the footballing world hasn’t wanted to be outdone with Terriers boss Carlos Corberán resigning from his post with immediate effect.

The decision from Corberán comes with the new season just three weeks away, throwing preparations up in the air for the Yorkshire club and puts a big dent in their promotion aspirations.

Professional development coach Danny Schofield will now step up and lead the first team whilst the search for a new permanent manager gets underway.

What’s been said?

Head of football operations Leigh Bromby:

“It is with sadness that we have accepted Carlos’ resignation. He was obviously a big part of what was a fantastic season in 2021/22, but he has subsequently come to us over the last 24 hours and made it clear that he doesn’t think he is the man to take us forward.

“The timing is disappointing, with our preparations for the new season already under way. However, we have worked very hard here over the last few years to build a coaching and support structure around the First Team that gives us continuity and stability when there’s change. We’ve also created succession plans for every eventuality.”

Dean Hoyle:

“I know the timing of this news will come as a real shock to our supporters. We felt the same when Carlos asked to meet Leigh on Wednesday evening and made it clear he would be leaving, as we have been working together to plan for the new season.

“Everyone at the Club sincerely thanks Carlos for his hard work over the last two seasons and for the way he has helped to take us forward. I really hope he goes on to have a great career.”
