West Brom made an ‘important step’ at Coventry City as Carlos Corberan explains decision

Spaniard Pipa, who is currently on loan from Ludogorets for the season, marked his first full appearance for West Brom during their victory against Coventry on Monday night, following a period of patiently waiting for his opportunity.

Carlos Corberan, West Brom’s manager, sees Pipa’s debut as a significant milestone. After nearly two months with the club and only three substitute appearances under his belt, Pipa was finally given the chance to start a game. He filled in admirably for the regular right wing-back, Darnell Furlong, at a time when West Brom’s options were limited due to injuries to key players.

Corberan explained that Pipa was chosen to start over Furlong because of his ability to attack directly and advance into the opponent’s territory. This tactical decision was intended to play with wing-backs positioned higher up the field, emphasizing their comfort with the ball and their attacking capabilities on the flanks. Corberan emphasized that every player on the team has their unique strengths and contributions, and giving Pipa the opportunity to start was a significant step in the right direction for the team.

In addition to Pipa, Corberan praised center-back Cedric Kipre, who made a surprising return to action after a recent injury scare. Kipre’s rapid recovery was a relief, as initial concerns about the severity of his injury were unfounded. Corberan highlighted Kipre’s growing confidence and his positive impact on the team’s attack.

The decision of whether to start Furlong or Pipa against Hull City on Saturday remains to be made.
