Leeds United first team and academy coach Carlos Corberan has been approached by Huddersfield Town for their vacant head coach role.
Following the departure of the Cowley brothers from the John Smith’s Stadium last weekend, The Athletic’s Phil Hay has revealed that The Whites have received an approach for the Spanish coach.
Corberan arrived at Thorp Arch in 2017 before being promoted to first team coach a year later following the arrival of Marcelo Bielsa, winning the PDL title in 2018-19 having already won the PDL North that season. Corberan has only been in the hot seat at two teams previous to his time at Leeds, both in the Cypriot first division. Doxa Katokopia was his first job, but the Spaniard left after just two months to guide Ermis Aradippou FC to a seventh placed finish in the 16/17 season.
Phil Hay revealed that United’s Yorkshire rivals have now approached the club in a bid to speak to Corberan regarding the head coach role, Hay then responded to hopes that he would remain at Elland Road, responding to say that Corberan fancies the step-up to head coaching.
Huddersfield want Carlos Corberan as their next first-team manager. They've approached Leeds United who want to keep him but won't stand in his way if he decides to go. Would expect a compensation fee. #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHay_) July 20, 2020
I think he might. Keen to be a first-team boss.— Phil Hay (@PhilHay_) July 20, 2020
Corberan will now have a decision to make between a safe position with the now Category One academy in the Premier League as well as being part of the first-team staff, or to challenge himself at the Championship level having seen what it takes to win the league title first-hand.
