Huddersfield boss Carlos Corberan has resigned today amid concerns about the direction the Championship club is headed, with Danny Schofield his replacement.

Sportsmail understands the highly-rated Spaniard Corberan informed club officials on Thursday morning with the details of his departure officially announced at 11.15am.

It is believed Corberan has interest from rival clubs, but as it stands he does not have an agreement to join another team.

Instead, his reason to step down as Huddersfield boss is linked to concerns that his vision for Huddersfield is not aligned with those at the very top of the club.

Those feelings have now been expressed to club officials resulting in Corberan's departure.

A club statement read: 'Huddersfield Town can confirm that Carlos Corberan has today resigned from his position as head coach.

'The 39-year-old was appointed to the role in July 2020 and, following a 20th-place finish in his first season, coached the team to the Sky Bet Championship play-off final in the last campaign.

'However, he notified the club of his decision to leave, alongside his long-term colleague Jorge Alarcon, on Wednesday evening.'

Head of football operations Leigh Bromby added: 'It is with sadness that we have accepted Carlos' resignation. He was obviously a big part of what was a fantastic season in 2021-22, but he has subsequently come to us over the last 24 hours and made it clear that he doesn't think he is the man to take us forward.

'The timing is disappointing, with our preparations for the new season already under way.

'Danny Schofield will now step up to lead the team. He knows the club, the players, our coaching programme, and our structure as well as anyone and is ideally positioned to give us continuity.'

The highly-rated coach has a strong affinity with the club's supporters and believes it is the right decision to leave Huddersfield rather than let the issues fester - a scenario that could overshadow their pre-season and start to the 2022-23 campaign.

Corberan has nurtured a reputation as one of the best coaches outside the Premier League since his appointment in 2020 and leaves with his stock high.

He led Huddersfield to the brink of Premier League promotion last season, losing in the play-off final to Nottingham Forest.

But he has left Huddersfield amid concerns from inside the west Yorkshire club that he has another club lined up.

However, sources are adamant that Corberan, despite growing interest from other teams, will not walk straight into another club but felt it was beneficial for everyone involved that he walk away.
