Everton consider West Brom manager Carlos Corberan as Frank Lampard replacement
West Brom manager Carlos Corberan has got admirers at Everton as the club look to replace Frank Lampard before the clash with Arsenal, say The Telegraph.
The Toffees sacked Lampard on Monday (23 January) after 12 months in charge with the club in the relegation zone with just three wins from 20 games so far this season.
With a two week gap between fixtures in the Premier League, owner Farhad Moshiri wants to make an appointment before the game with Arsenal and current EFL boss Corberan has got admirers at Goodison Park.
“West Bromwich Albion manager Carlos Corberan and former Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl also have admirers among the Goodison hierarchy, with Moshiri looking to move quickly to ensure a replacement is in place before the next Premier League game at home to leaders Arsenal on February 4,” they wrote (23 January).
Corberan’s career has been very interesting to day, coming to England with Marcelo Bielsa as part of Leeds’ coaching staff.
But since becoming a manager he has impressed, helping Huddersfield to the playoff final last season before taking over at West Brom this season and winning eight of ten games to move them from the bottom of the table and into playoff contention.
Such a big U-turn would obviously not be expected to happen at Everton if he took charge, but it’s clear that he knows how to set up a defence and more importantly set a team up to battle against relegation.
Everton need someone to come in and hit the ground running on the training ground and on the pitch, and Corberan has got previous for doing exactly that.
He won’t be the preferred option among fans, but he could prove to be far less of a gamble than initially believed when his name appeared among the links.
