Leeds have dealt a blow to their pursuit of Carlos Corberan as new manager, with the Spaniard signing a contract extension at West Brom

It looks like Carlos Corberan won’t be Leeds’ next manager as the Spaniard has signed a contract extension with West Brom.

Corberan, who has won ten of his 13 league appearances in charge of the Baggies, is now under contract with the Hawthorns until the summer of 2027.


Corberan signed a two-and-a-half-year contract when he was appointed in October, but extended his stay at the club by four-and-a-half years.

“I believe success can only be achieved when everyone works together and the way I was welcomed to this great club convinced me that this is the right place for me,” Corberan said.

“It’s important to me that we don’t let this moment distract us from our goal, which is to improve every day, making the team more and more competitive for the challenges ahead.”

Corberan only signed a two-and-a-half-year contract in October after taking over from Steve Bruce with the struggling side near the foot of the table.

However, the Spaniard’s impact has been so impressive that he started talks with general manager Ron Gourlay three weeks ago over the direction of the club, which resulted in the contract being extended.

“I have always been impressed with Carlos and my admiration for him as a coach has only grown since he arrived here,” Gourlay said.

“His passion for the game we all love has been infectious to everyone connected with the club, especially our players, who have clearly benefited from Carlos’ top-notch coaching, tactical savvy and caring attitude. detail.

“We sat down three weeks ago to discuss the future of the club and Carlos’ vision for Albion is absolutely aligned with mine.

“Together we are determined to keep the club moving forward.”

Leeds chairman Andrea Radrizzani suggested the appointment of a new manager was close earlier on Tuesday, but the news will come as a blow to the Premier League club, who were heavily linked with Corberan after parting ways with Jesse Marsch on Monday.

Corberan has impressed hugely since taking over from West Brom in October, guiding them to the Championship play-offs after being relegation candidates.

He has links with Elland Road having worked as an assistant coach to Marcelo Bielsa and taking charge of their Under-23 team beforehand.

But with Mauricio Pochettino joining Leeds but ruled out, it looks like it’s back to the drawing board for Los Blancos in their search for a new manager.
