The Lowdown: Manager search accelerating…
The Baggies appear to have picked up the pace when it comes to bringing in Steve Bruce’s successor following Tuesday’s 2-0 defeat to Bristol City.
Simon Stone stated on Wednesday that West Brom are closing in on a new manager, with Corberan the first to be interviewed for the vacancy. An update has now emerged on the attacking 4-3-3 style boss, who is currently out of work.
The Latest: Crook’s update
Crook took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to share an update from West Brom.
He said that ‘Corberan has had at least two interviews’ and added that Plymouth Argyle’s Steven Schumacher is ‘also admired’.
Corberan at West Brom?
Yes, why not!
Not for me!
The Verdict: Corberan the man?
It looks as if Corberan could well be leading the race to take over at The Hawthorns, with club officials speaking with the Spaniard on more than one occasion.
The Baggies won’t have to worry about a compensation fee as the 39-year-old is out of work, so a move could go through relatively quickly.
If he does make a return to England with a move to the Midlands, West Brom will be hoping he can replicate his work at Huddersfield after he took the Terriers to the Championship playoff final last season, and not his time at Olympiacos where he lasted just 11 games in charge.
