Leeds United assistant joins Huddersfield as Head Coach

The 37-year-old Carlos Corberan has spent the past three years with the Whites and coached the club's under-23s as well as being on Marcelo Bielsa's staff.

He replaces Danny Cowley after the ex-Lincoln manager was sacked on Sunday.

Huddersfield have had a woeful restart winning two games of the nine since the Championship continued. The poor form has been to not scoring enough, they failed to do so in five games since the break.

They weren’t closed up in defense either conceding multiple goals in all of their losses.

It was a sacking waiting happen with Huddersfield having a poor track record with managers and fans needn’t be surprised.

"After two difficult seasons, we have put a lot of thought and work into what we want to be," said the head of football operations Leigh Bromby.

"Obviously, we need to return to winning games, and to be successful we must have all areas of the club aligned in the way we work."

"We want to return to the 'no limits' mentality that served this club so well back in 2017. We must start believing in ourselves and our people once again; players and staff alike.

"Carlos was our ideal candidate for our new head coach from the outset, as his idea of football is completely aligned with ours."

The Terriers sacked now-former manager Cowley on Sunday, with chairman Phil Hodgkinson saying they had a "different vision for the way we operate the club, and how our ambitions can be achieved".

Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani said earlier this week that Corberan "deserves" the chance to be a head coach.

"I know how much Carlos works and I think now it's also good that he can take his own way and start a new journey to build himself as a first-team coach," he said.
