Head Coach and three of his closest staff members extend their stay

- New HTAFC contract for Head Coach Carlos Corberán
- Jorge Alarcón, Narcís Pèlach & Danny Schofield also sign new deals
- Comments from Chairman Phil Hodgkinson

Huddersfield Town is delighted to announce that Head Coach Carlos Corberán has signed a new long-term contract!

Carlos has put pen-to-paper on a new deal that runs until the conclusion of the 2023/24 season alongside his Assistant Coaches Jorge Alarcón and Narcís Pèlach.

Danny Schofield has also signed a new contract that formalises his move onto the First Team coaching staff from his previous role as B Team lead.

The corresponding moves within the Academy coaching setup will be confirmed in due course.

Corberán and his coaching team joined the Club in the summer and have steered the Terriers to 12th in the Sky Bet Championship table after 20 games played whilst imprinting an attacking, attractive style of play onto the team.

Huddersfield Town Chairman Phil Hodgkinson explained:

“Ahead of bringing Carlos and his team to the Club at the conclusion of last season, we laid out a specific set of criteria that we wanted from our new Head Coach. It is fair to say, after five months, that Carlos and his team have shown everything we were looking for – and more.

“Carlos and our coaches have brought a clear identity back to our play, win or lose; that was the top priority. We wanted a return to the ‘No Limits’ mentality we had back in 2016, where we show belief in our players and staff, and we can see that too.

“Carlos is completely aligned with how this Club operates, and as such has shown a real faith in our young players too. We head into the New Year with over 15% of our First Team minutes coming from Academy graduates, which is a real testament to that commitment.

“All this adds up to one thing – we wanted to get back to winning games. Whilst doing all the above in a compressed, unique season, Carlos has certainly shown he knows how to achieve this too.

“These new, improved contracts show our commitment to Carlos and the three coaches, and their commitment to what we’re building together at this Club.”

Head Coach Carlos Corberán added:

“I’m really pleased to be at Huddersfield Town, and to work with the people here every day. That starts with the Chairman, the Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby and everyone else. The high level of commitment that everyone here shows makes my job easier.

“From the moment I arrived here, I felt like a Terrier. That’s because I share the same values as the Club.

“We have a really good project here, and this commitment allows us to plan as well as possible in terms of the development of our players and our style.

“I’m very proud that Huddersfield Town wanted to extend our contracts, and I can promise that we will continue to give our very best for the Club in return. The spirit of the Terrier is to always demand more – the very best – from ourselves, and we will give everything to make us more competitive and make our fans as proud as they can be. That has been my commitment from the first day and does not change; to make our fans proud.”

Merry Christmas, Town fans!
