With one coaching problem solved at Leeds United this summer as the Board and manager Marcelo Bielsa agreed to the second year of the contract at Elland Road, we now potentially have another issue and unsurprisingly, Under 23 and first team coach Carlos Corberan is making a name for himself of his own.
With Professional Development League title and Play-Off success in the campaign of 2018/19, the next generation at Leeds also made their way to the Semi-Finals of the Premier League Cup, and Corberan’s leadership hasn’t gone unnoticed with reports in Spain suggesting that Cultural Leonesa want to bring him in ahead of the new season.
The report states that the 36-year-old has already held provisional talks with the club and obviously it would be a good move for him if he wants to make his name as a manager in his own right, but obviously time is more than on his side for that career progression.
I’m not sure the claims are quite as concrete as they would like readers to believe, so I wouldn’t be panicking yet, but the story has certainly gained some traction – especially owing to the Ivan Bravo and Aspire links which it leans heavily on.

Just hope Carlos stays at @LUFC doing great job developing our young talent and a would be natural successor to Bielsa #LUFC #MOT Cultural Leonesa make approach to appoint Leeds United coach Carlos Corberan as new manager https://t.co/nCoc6UIzcw

If #LUFC rate Carlos Corberan do you let him go and coach in Spain, trying to put in to practice what he has picked up from Bielsa and maybe send 5 or 6 youngsters on loan with him. Or do you keep him with Bielsa for another year to pick up more ideas and tips from the master.
