Carlos Corboran leads Twitter tributes to crop of Leeds United talent

The Spaniard led his team to yet more silverware yesterday.

Leeds United’s Under-23 outfit capped a superb campaign on Monday afternoon when they won the Professional Development League national title.

The Whites defeated Birmingham City 4-2 on penalties after a goalless draw in front of nearly 8000 supporters at Elland Road.

First-team players Jack Clarke and Gaetano Berardi helped Leeds to victory, with Clarke scoring the decisive penalty in the shootout.

The good work from the boss has been recognised by boss Marcelo Bielsa. He has been forthcoming in using members of the development squad to plug gaps at various points this season.

Following yesterday’s victory, the Spaniard took to Twitter. He was keen to thank the supporters who had come out to supporter his youngsters, tweeting:

The work of the 36-year-old was also acknowledged by Leeds chairman Andrea Radrizzani who was quick to praise the development squad boss:

 

Ryan Edmondson has bagged 19 goals for Corberan’s team this season and is seemingly close to the first-team picture. The 17-year-old might receive more of a chance during 2019/20 and after netting in the shootout he took to Twitter too:

The future certainly looks bright at Elland Road. Leeds might have needed a shootout to put the seal on their campaign but the youngsters have gone above and beyond this season.

Corberan’s work won’t have gone unnoticed with the club’s hierarchy and they will hope he can continue next season.
