West Brom manager Carlos Corberan to give serious consideration to Leeds United return
West Brom boss Carlos Coberan will reportedly give serious consideration as Leeds United appear to be keen on appointing him.
According to the Daily Mail [6 January], the Spaniard was also eyed by Everton before they went with Sean Dyche.
Victor Orta and Paraag Marathe will still be looking at other options before narrowing in on the identity of their preferred candidate.
Appointing Corberan would certainly be a gamble as his major experience has been managing in the second flight of England.
He was handed a chance to prove his worth at Olympiacos but was sacked within the first four months after he went two months without a win.

Managing Leeds is certainly going to be more difficult than the other tests he’s faced in his professional career thus far.
It remains to be seen if he emerges as the prime candidate as the Whites will undoubtedly have plenty of names they’re looking at.
However, unlike after Marcelo Bielsa’s sacking, the hierarchy does not seem like they have an option in mind and they have to go back to the drawing board.
Marsch was hired relatively quickly but we do expect them to take a bit longer to now appoint his successor with halfway of the season still left.
In other Leeds United news, the Whites are now preparing to sign a former Barcelona defender in the summer and have already taken decisive steps towards sealing the deal.
