As we wait on updates on who is going to be in majority control of the club beyond this summer, there are more question marks that need to be addressed – including in the dugout too.
Sam Allardyce is not going to be hanging around too long with the club looking for a new appointment to tackle the Championship at full force.
Who might Leeds look to?
It’s the third time in 2023 that Leeds have been conducting a managerial search, after replacing Jesse Marsch and Javi Gracia in February and May respectively.
Victor Orta is not present anymore to lead the search for a new manager, and that might change who Leeds look to instead of Allardyce.
One of the managers Leeds reportedly turned to in February to replace Marsch was the former assistant of Marcelo Bielsa, Carlos Corberan.
Do Leeds want Corberan?
A report from the Daily Mail has been assessing Leeds’ candidates to take over from Allardyce, and that includes West Brom boss Corberan.
Interestingly, while the Baggies fended off interest by tying him down to a new deal, Leeds might be able to prise him from the Hawthorns:
“West Brom manager Carlos Corberan is a former Leeds Under 23 coach and has admirers at Elland Road. He signed a new contract at West Brom earlier this year but it has a release clause.”
Should Leeds cash in on Gnonto?
A proven track record of improving his existing squad, Corberan should be a strong candidate for us to be looking at in the summer.
He has a lot of experience in the Championship that we know of, and is one of the better managers in the division.
Not only this, but with our comparative spending power, we should be in a good position to tempt him to leave the club for an Elland Road return.
