Leeds ‘eye West Brom boss Carlos Corberan’ if they decide to sack Jesse Marsch under fire as fears of relegation mount
WEST BROM manager Carlos Corberan has reportedly emerged “as a potential candidate” for Leeds United should they sack Jesse Marsch.
Elland Road’s miserable form continued today with a 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest.
That left them without a win in the Premier League since 5 November and only in the bottom three on goal difference.
Marsch has admitted he understands fans’ frustration as the pressure mounts ahead of a double-header with Manchester United this week.
Now the Daily Mail claims Leeds “owners Andrea Radrizzani and Paraag Marathe will be the men in charge of Marsch’s future in the coming days”.
They claim that Corberan, who previously coached Marcelo Bielsa at the club, was already “admired”.
The 39-year-old Spaniard then led Huddersfield to the Championship play-offs last season before briefly losing at Olympiacos.
However, his reputation has continued to solidify since he returned to England to take over West Brom.
He took the Baggies from the relegation zone to the playoffs and even attracted interest from Everton last week before they settled on Sean Dyche.
West Brom are keen to tie him to a new contract but a Leeds return could prove too tempting for Corberan to resist.

Marsch replaced Bielsa at Leeds a year ago and helped them ensure Premier League survival.
But despite the support in the transfer market, this season has proven to be another struggle.
Leeds have won just four out of 20 top-flight games so far this season.
