Huddersfield boss Carlos Corberan to leave the Terriers as interest from rival team emerges

Carlos Corberan is reportedly preparing to walk away from Huddersfield Town amid interest from a rival team.

The Spaniard joined Huddersfield in July 2020, following three years working at Leeds United under Marcelo Bielsa. In his first season at the Kirklees Stadium, Huddersfield finished 20th in the Championship on 49 points.

They improved massively last term though and went on to reach third spot, winning half of their second tier matches.

Huddersfield beat Luton Town 2-1 on aggregate in the play-off semi-final to book their place at Wembley.

However, they were beaten 1-0 by Nottingham Forest in the final, ending the club’s hopes of getting back into the Premier League.

Corberan has done a great job at Huddersfield but is now set to move on. According to Mike McGrath of the The Telegraph, the 39-year-old will soon leave the side.

The Daily Mail reveal the same news. They claim Corberan will leave today (Thursday), after telling club chiefs of this desire.

Their report states Corberan has interest from a ‘rival club’, although that team isn’t revealed. The fact it is a rival suggests it could be a competitor in the Championship.

It is a big shock for Huddersfield officials to contend with and they will need to act swiftly to bring in his replacement.

The club is busy preparing for next season and are due to face League One outfit Morecambe in a friendly on July 12.
