Leeds United ‘interest’ in ‘special’ coach caused ‘anxiety’ but he is ‘intent’ on delivering success

Leeds United and Carlos Corberan parted ways after winning promotion to the Premier League. The assistant coach to Marcelo Bielsa took over the vacant managerial position at Huddersfield Town and help guide the Terriers to play-off final, just a whisker away from the Premier League.

Before returning to the Championship with West Bromwich Albion, there was a stint in Greece. Following Jesse Marsch’s departure from Yorkshire last season, the Whites would attempt to entice their former assistant back to Yorkshire after rescuing the Baggies from the relegation zone and placing them just outside the play-off places.

The Spaniard would demonstrate his quality by agreeing to a new, long-term contract at the Hawthorns, but this summer, interest from Leeds United resurfaced. The Whites offered Daniel Farke the position of head coach, but the new deal proved to be a financial barrier they wouldn’t look to surpass.

Leeds Live met with West Bromwich Albion reporter Joseph Chapman of Birmingham Live to get more information about Corberan’s time at the Baggies and to find out why the reporter was confident the Spaniard would reject the Whites.

Leeds United will be put to the test as Daniel Farke’s credentials for promotion are scrutinized.
It’s fair to say that Leeds United’s first 11 games back in the Championship this season have challenged them. With five wins and four draws in their first two months of play, the Whites are currently in fifth place in the league standings and are looking up the table rather than down it.

However, due to the difficulties they have encountered in the Championship, they are currently nine points below the pace for automatic promotion. After discovering themselves deprived and without the quality that would come later in the season, the Whites commenced the campaign by going three league games without experiencing victory window.

Leeds has climbed the ladder and demonstrated their early promotion credentials since defeating second-place Ipswich Town, averaging two points per game, with the 3-1 loss at Southampton serving as the lone significant setback on a bad day for everyone. But with Daniel Farke’s Leeds ready to play some of the finest teams in the Championship, their credentials will undoubtedly come under scrutiny over the coming weeks.

Between the conclusion of the October international break and the beginning of the November break, Leeds will play five games: three away at Norwich City, Stoke City, and Leicester City, two at home against Huddersfield Town and Plymouth Argyle. As the Championship gets ready to approach the busy holiday season, that stretch of games should reveal a lot about the Whites’ true character.

Mettle and character will be put to the test, and Farke will be given information on Leeds’ chances of finishing in the top two. Farke’s first trip to Carrow Road since leaving Norwich in November 2021 kicks off the three-week stint.
