West Brom started this season under manager Steve Bruce, but decided to sack on October 11 last year due to poor performance. Afterwards, after going through the acting manager system, Corberan was appointed as manager on October 26 last year.
West Brom under Corberan are on the rise. West Brom, who had only 1 win, 8 draws and 4 losses in 13 League Championship games under former manager Bruce, lost 0-2 to Sheffield United, the first match Corberan took the helm, but lost 10 in the following 12 matches. Recorded 2 wins and 2 losses. Under Corberan’s leadership, West Brom recorded 10 wins and 3 losses in 13 League Championship games.
As West Brom under Corberan started to perform well, Leeds United, who sacked manager Jesse Marsh, began to be mentioned as candidates for the next manager. That’s also because Corberan has a connection with Leeds’ under-23 manager.
In the end, West Brom moved quickly. West Brom, who had raised the ability of coach Corberan, who led Greece’s Olympiacos until last season, hurriedly extended the contract as Leeds drew attention. He could keep him at West Brom until the end of the 2017 season.
Although Corberan has been left out of the list of candidates, there are still many candidates for Leeds’ next manager. Head coach Marcelo Bielsa, who is receiving interest from the Korean national soccer team, and Anji Postecoglu, head coach of Celtic, are on the list of candidates.
Rafael Benitez, Steven Gerrard, Ralf Hasenhutti, Mauricio Pochettino and Thomas Tuchel, who do not currently have a team, are also being discussed as candidates for former Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo, who currently leads Al Ittihad.
