West Bromwich Albion manager Carlos Corberan has emerged as the early favourite to succeed Jesse Marsch at Leeds United.

Marsch has been sacked following Leeds' poor run of form in the Premier League. His side failed to win a league game since club football returned following the end of the World Cup.

Only one place separates Leeds and the bottom three and now Leeds are looking for a new manager to guide them to safety. The early frontrunner is West Brom's Corberan after he previously worked under Marcelo Bielsa when the club managed to gain promotion back to the English top-flight.

Potential candidiate

The Daily Mail claim that West Brom boss Corberan has emerged as a potential candidate to replace Marsch.

The report adds that Corberan has his admirers at Elland Road for the role he played in the club's promotion to the Premier League while he working under Bielsa. He then left Leeds to start his career as a manager at Huddersfield Town.

Corberan has already addressed West Brom future

Carlos Corberan has been named as the bookmakers' favourite to succeed the outgoing Jesse Marsch at former club Leeds United. West Brom boss Corberan was only installed at The Hawthorns in October when replacing Steve Bruce, and in that time he's guided the club from the bottom of the Championship table and into the play-offs.

The 39-year-old arrived at Leeds in 2017 to manage their under 21s team, before he was tasked by incoming boss Marcelo Bielsa with first-team duties. In 2020, having helped Bielsa and Leeds achieve promotion to the Premier League, he left the club to begin his own managerial journey at Huddersfield.

After a near miss at Wembley and a failed stint at Olympiacos, Corberan returned to England when he answered Albion's call. The transformation on the pitch has been spectacular in that time - but so has the speculation. Corberan was linked with West Ham prior to their recent mini-upturn in form, while Everton too were tipped - but they turned to Sean Dyche.
