West Brom: Carlos Corberan could finally unlock Grady Diangana

West Bromwich Albion may have masterminded a sensational win on Saturday over high-flying Reading, but they still remain without a manager exactly a week on.

Steve Bruce’s dismissal did not come as a great shock to many, given his side were sat in the relegation zone, winless in their last eight games.

Do you think Corberan is best suited to get the best from Diangana?





It, therefore, sparks questions as to why he is yet to be replaced, especially given the multitude of names touted for the job.

One such name who might catch the eye, in particular, is Carlos Corberan, who not only fits the mould of a young and progressive manager but also has vast experience in the EFL and far beyond.

To make things even better, he has often employed a 3-4-3 formation, which is a style the Baggies have often operated in.

He has relied upon quick and incisive counterattacks, with intelligent pressing and a fluid attacking line. Someone who might benefit from this kind of play is Grady Diangana, who has admittedly been disappointing this season.

Under the previous regime, he had scored twice and assisted three times in 14 Championship appearances. In a season where many expected him to be a catalyst for their promotion, he has let them down.

Under this potential new leadership, however, his attributes match up well with the philosophy of the former Marcelo Bielsa disciple.

Possessing incredible speed and great decision-making in the final third, he could become a decisive asset that could underpin Corberan’s entire system.

This is supported by comments made by journalist Lewis Cox, who dubbed the 24-year-old “sharp” while celebrating his “lightning feet”.

First up in this West Brom transfer quiz, which club did the Baggies sign Alex Mowatt from?

Having scored eight and assisted seven in his debut season at the Hawthorns, the former Huddersfield Town manager will be hoping to spark this kind of form once more should he take up the vacant manager position.

Where he nearly took the Terriers to an unlikely promotion just last season, he will be expected to go one better if he does make the move.

Diangana will likely be integral to whoever gets offered the position, but Corberan in particular could squeeze the best out of the Englishman with his particular play style.
