The Whites sent a worrying message to Carlos Corberan
Danny Mills believes Carlos Corberan could turn down the job at Leeds United because he may think promotion from West Brom is the ‘better option’.
The former Leeds defender added that Corberan is doing a “very, very good” job at West Brom, having replaced Steve Bruce in the Hawthorns’ dugout ahead of the World Cup.
Albion were sitting 23rd in the Championship when Corberan took over, fast forward to the present and they are sixth in the table and have a real shot at making the play-offs.
The lure of the Premier League might be too good for some to turn down, while others might argue the Spaniard could end up swapping divisions with the Midlands team if he does indeed take over the Elland Road gig.
Likewise, West Brom might not be promoted and Leeds might stay up, which is a different view.
However, should Leeds come knocking following Monday’s sacking of Jesse Marsch, the 39-year-old has a big decision to make, Mills told Sky Sports News (02/06/23).
“Carlos Corberan, who was previously at the club under Marcelo Bielsa, has been talked about,” Mills said. “He is doing a very, very good job at West Brom.
“He might think ‘maybe it’s better to try to get promoted and get West Brom up than try to save Leeds’. Maybe he wants to wait until the end of the season. That may be the case for many managers.”
CORBERAN IS IN A BAD SITUATION
The problem Corberan faces is that he’s just joined West Brom and it wouldn’t exactly look great if he’s already heading for the exit door.
But on the other hand, Leeds are a far bigger club than Albion and the Premier League stage is the biggest of any on the domestic stage.
Either way, having worked under Marcelo Bielsa at Elland Road, Leeds may be getting their pupil right now, which is probably a better option than getting Bielsa himself now.
