West Bromwich Albion have been praised by sections of the media after their ‘excellent’ and ‘exciting’ appointment of new manager Carlos Corberan.
The Lowdown: Baggies search ends…
The Baggies’ long-winded search for a new head coach ended this week with West Brom hiring Corberan on a two-and-a-half-year deal to replace ex-boss Steve Bruce.
Only Burnley have drawn as many games as West Brom this season (8), but unlike the high-flying Clarets, most of their other matches have ended in dismal defeat.
Corberan’s first game comes against current play-off contenders Sheffield United on Saturday so the Spaniard will need to inspire some very quick devotion from his new squad.
The Latest: Journalists praise ‘exciting’ and ‘excellent’ Corberan move…
Taking to social media, big name members of the press like La Liga expert and BBC journalist Guillem Balague have now praised West Brom for bringing in Corberan.
Reporter Tom Collomosse has also had his say with both journalists now revealing their excitement over the move on Twitter.
Collomosse: “Excellent appointment imo.”
Ballague: “This is exciting news! Process, lots of work and structure is what he has to do now.”
The Verdict: Cause for optimism?
The 39-year-old, who had a brief stint at Greek Super League giants Olympiakos, clearly cannot come more highly recommended by esteemed members of the press.
Having also lead former side Huddersfield Town to a Championship play-off final, Corberan could be just the type of manager West Brom chiefs are looking for to assist their side’s push for eventual Premier League promotion.
While that may not be this campaign, the Baggies may have just laid the groundwork for a future climb back to the big time.
