Next Permanent Arsenal Manager
|Mikel Arteta to be the Next Permanent Arsenal Manager||15/2||Paddy Power|
|Patrick Viera to be the Next Permanent Arsenal Manager||9/1||Paddy Power|
|Antonio Conte to be the Next Permanent Arsenal Manager||13/1||Paddy Power|
Unai Emery is currently manager of Arsenal FC, with the Spaniard enjoying a relatively successful season at the north London club.
Emery replaced the legendary Arsene Wenger in the summer of 2018, with the former Seville manager starting to reshape the squad in his own image and he looks set to remain in charge for the foreseeable future. He doesn’t currently sit high in the Premier League Sack Race market.
However, several bookmakers have odds available for the Next Permanent Arsenal Manager, with this being a high-profile role which always attracts a huge amount of interest when the position becomes vacant.
Mikel Arteta appeared to be close to landing the Arsenal manager role when Arsene Wenger decided to step down, with the Spaniard trading as the market favourite before the club decided that Emery was a better fit.
After all, Arteta has been club captain of the Gunners and clearly understands the fabric of Arsenal, with a lack of experience being the apparent stumbling block when it came to landing the role the first time around.
Punters love to bet on Next Arsenal Manager and Patrick Vieira is someone who would surely be welcomed with open arms. The Frenchman is one of the best players to ever wear an Arsenal shirt and is currently the manager at Ligue 1 club Nice.
However, this betting market could be merely speculative for several seasons while Emery continues to do a good job at the Emirates, especially if Champions League football returns to the club.
Next Arsenal Manager Betting Odds
During the summer of 2018, the search took place for the next manager of Arsenal before Unai Emery obliged for punters who had backed the Spaniard to replace Arsene Wenger in the hot seat.
Now the next Arsenal manager betting market has reopened and there are lots of familiar names on the bookmaker shortlist, although it could feasibly be years until Emery is either sacked or decides to part company with the London club.
Brendan Rodgers was linked with Arsenal previously and the current manager of Leicester City will hope to demonstrate enough quality with the Foxes to attract the interest of a club such as Arsenal if Emery were to leave as manager.
However, he’s currently trading at 20/1 with Paddy Power and the bookmakers consider him to be an outsider compared to names such as Patrick Vieira, Antonio Conte and Mikel Arteta (who may be a contender for the Everton Manager Job were it to become available).
Conte enjoyed a remarkable first season with Chelsea which saw the Blues recover from a sluggish start to win the Premier League title and the Italian is trading at 13/1 with Paddy Power although quite whether the volatile manager fits into the Arsenal ethos is another matter.
Thomas Tuchel is a more interesting runner at 14/1 with Paddy Power and the German could eventually find a big role in England after managing Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain.
Tuchel is currently in charge at PSG, following in the footsteps of Emery although he failed to deliver Champions League glory for the French champions during the 2018/19 season and might be interested in a new challenge eventually.
Max Allegri continues to cement a legendary status at Juventus and perhaps the Italian could be persuaded to eventually enjoy a stint with Arsenal, while Gareth Southgate is a 30/1 poke and is relatively young for an international manager.
Southgate might at some stage want to enjoy the rigours of club management again, although he has been part of the FA furniture for some time.
