Albion are delighted to confirm the appointment of Marcos Abad as the club’s Goalkeeping Coach.

Abad arrives at The Hawthorns following a six-year spell with Leeds United, where he worked with Baggies boss Carlos Corberán.

Abad replaces Gary Walsh in the head coach’s backroom staff, and Corberán paid tribute to the departing Goalkeeping Coach, before outlining Abad’s qualities.  

He said: “First of all, I would like to thank Gary for all his hard work at the football club, and all the work we have done together. We have built a strong relationship that I will always appreciate.”

“I would like to welcome Marcos to the club,” Corberán added. “I have worked with Marcos before for three years at Leeds and I know he shares my passion and enthusiasm for coaching and I know that will help us with our goalkeepers, as well as some other responsibilities that he will take on with my staff.

“This is an opportunity for Marcos and I to work together again, which I’m pleased about, as I know Marcos has the knowledge, experience and dedication to help us, specifically with our goalkeepers.”
