We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…
Paul Robinson doesn’t want Leeds United to hire a young, up-and-coming manager to replace Jesse Marsch if the American is sacked.
Mail+ reported on Tuesday (25 October) that Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta are looking out for Marsch’s successor at Elland Road if they decide to get rid of him.
Carlos Corberan’s name is one that has been mentioned online by fans with the Spaniard serving as part of Marcelo Bielsa’s coaching team in his time at Elland Road.
Corberan, 39, has since managed at Huddersfield and Olympiakos.
He does, however, seem to be on his way to West Brom now.
Either way, Robinson feels that if Leeds do move on from Marsch, they should be avoiding a manager like Corberan and going for someone who’s more proven at keeping clubs in the Premier League.
“It’s all well and good thinking of Carlos Corberan, who is a young developing manager. He did okay at Huddersfield,” Robinson told MOT Leeds News.
“Or a younger manager like Michael Beale at QPR, who’s got potential and can take the club on in the long term.
“You need somebody who can get results and get results in two minutes, not two weeks or two months or for the long-term future of the club.
“You need somebody to sustain the long-term future by going in there this season and keeping them in the Premier League.
“At the moment, it doesn’t look like they are if results don’t go right.”
According to Telegraph journalist John Percy (25 October), Corberan is set to be appointed as West Brom’s new manager after they sacked Steve Bruce earlier this month.
Spanish football expert Guillem Balague claims the former Leeds United Under-23s manager is on his way from Leeds to the West Midlands to sign a two-and-a-half-year deal at The Hawthorns.
In other Leeds United news, Marsch has been told to enter quiet talks with the PGMOL after Jeff Stelling made an accusation.
