‘Fans will love what he said’:West Brom’s boss Corberan’s drops huge claims as he issues ‘excellent’ Southampton verdict…

West Brom manager Carlos Corberan has given a positive assessment of Southampton ahead of their upcoming clash, emphasizing the imperative for his team to excel comprehensively to secure a victory. Having previously served as Marcelo Bielsa’s assistant at Leeds United and guiding Huddersfield to the Championship playoff final, Corberan is achieving success with West Brom.

Currently trailing Saints by just one point after 15 matches, the St Mary’s meeting marks a fourth-versus-fifth contest. Despite this close margin, Corberan asserts that his team must approach the game with near-perfection to stand a chance against Russell Martin’s unbeaten Saints, who have secured seven consecutive league victories.

In anticipation of the match, Corberan expressed, “It would be impossible to think you can beat Southampton, with the level of football they can produce and the players they have, without being excellent in every aspect of the game. Whether that be goal kicks, pressing from the goal kicks, the build-up play, when we attack in the final third or when we defend the final third.”

Recognizing Southampton’s strategic team reconstruction in the summer following relegation, Corberan acknowledged their decision to sell and bring in new players. He highlighted Southampton’s commitment to their current squad as the best players to achieve their goal of returning to the Premier League.

“They have a clear target and they have taken steps to try and achieve that. They were in the Premier League for 11 years and they’ll be doing all they can to get back there,” Corberan added.

Underlining the importance of confidence and belief for success, Corberan emphasized the impact on game difficulty and the need for bravery, ball possession, and resilience. He expressed the team’s desire to maintain their recent level of performance and competitiveness.

Looking ahead to Saturday’s challenging game, Corberan concluded, “We know how difficult Saturday’s game is going to be. Every game is different. The key is to be competitive in different scenarios.”
