THE BIGGER PICTURE: Leeds sacked Jesse Marsch this week and are looking for a quick replacement. Chairman Andrea Radrizzani wrote on Twitter on Tuesday that "We are on it ….hopefully white smoke by tonight or tmw [sic] morning." Corberan had reportedly been a top candidate for the job.
Until they appoint a permanent head coach, Chris Armas will serve as caretaker manager.
WHAT NEXT FOR LEEDS? Armas is in for a tough task, as Leeds go to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Wednesday.
