Huddersfield Town announce new Head Coach

- Comments from Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby

Huddersfield Town is delighted to confirm Carlos Corberán as the Club’s new Head Coach!

Carlos joins the Terriers from fellow West Yorkshire side Leeds United, where he was Assistant Coach to Marcelo Bielsa as the Whites achieved promotion to the Premier League earlier this month.

He will be joined at the Club by his own Assistant Coaches who will be announced in due course.

Corberán arrives at Town with a strong reputation in football. Hailing from Valencia, Spain, he holds a UEFA Pro License and is known for his strength in coaching.

He began his career in the setup at Spanish giants Valencia, taking responsibility for the training methodology in their Academy before quickly progressing to work with the First Team under the likes of Unai Emery and Manuel Pellegrini during the Club’s run to the Europa League semi-finals.

Under the recommendation of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, Carlos then travelled overseas to become Assistant Head Coach at Saudi Arabian clubs Al-Ittihad and Al-Nassr, where he gained experiences in the Asian Champions League.

Carlos’ first experiences as a Head Coach followed in Cyprus, where he took charge of Doxa Katokopia and then Ermis Aradippou, who he steered to safety in the division.

Through his work at the prestigious Aspire Academy in Qatar, he then joined Leeds United ahead of the 2017/18 campaign. Initially working as Under-23 Coach, the quality of his work soon saw him move into the First Team setup under Marcelo Bielsa as the Whites finished third and first in the Sky Bet Championship in the last two years.

Huddersfield Town’s Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby explained:

“We’re very happy to be able to welcome Carlos as our new Head Coach today, in what is undoubtedly a very important appointment for Huddersfield Town.

“After two difficult seasons, we have put a lot of thought and work into what we want to be and how we operate moving forward.

“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. He is very strong on the need for a team to have a strength of identity on the pitch; a way of playing that leaves players in no doubt on their roles when they step foot onto the grass. He believes in a high energy, high intensity, attacking style of play.

“He is a coach whose focus is on working to improve players. Like us, he has a real belief in young players too, and desire to work with them to help them thrive.

“He’s incredibly passionate about this opportunity, and he has real belief in himself. He’s determined to bring success back to Huddersfield Town.”
