West Brom have moved onto the formal interview stage with former Huddersfield Town manager Carlos Corberan.
The Lowdown: Another defeat
Caretaker Richard Beale failed to back up an away win at Reading on the weekend after falling to a 2-0 home defeat to Bristol City on Tuesday evening.
The Baggies could fall back into the relegation zone this evening, should results go against them, with Sky Sports reporter Rob Dorsett believing the midweek loss will accelerate the club’s plans to bring in Steve Bruce’s successor.
The Latest: Baggies interview
Reliable reporter Gregg Evans shared a West Brom update for The Athletic on Wednesday morning.
He said that Corberan is the first manager to be interviewed for the job, with Ron Gourlay and Ian Pearce now working their way through a number of applicants with more interviews likely to be conducted in the coming days.
Corberan at West Brom?
Yes, why not!
Not for me!
The Verdict: Top target?
Corberan, hailed as ‘very talented‘ by Marcelo Bielsa, could well be the club’s top target considering he is the first to be interviewed over the role.
He impressed with Huddersfield last season, leading them to the Championship playoff final against Nottingham Forest. The Spaniard, who averages two points per game against West Brom, resigned in the summer and spent just 11 games in charge of Olympiacos.
The 39-year-old likes to play an attacking 4-3-3 system and is currently a free agent, so it will be interesting to see if the Baggies go back to him after speaking with other shortlisted candidates.
