Next Chelsea Manager Odds

Chelsea Football Club regularly change their managers, with Roman Abramovich clearly an impatient owner who doesn’t tolerate bad results or a failure to win silverware on a continual basis!

While Maurizio Sarri remains in charge at Stamford Bridge, the Italian is current favourite in the Premier League Sack Race betting market, with the bookies making him odds-on to leave his role before the 2018/19 season culminates.

Sarri arrived at the London club with a reputation for free-flowing football, although the team continue to rely on Eden Hazard for creativity and goals, while a clash with goalkeeper Kepa during the EFL Cup final defeat could be the lasting impression of the Italian’s time at the club.

With Sarri potentially about to last just a season at Chelsea, several bookmakers have created a Next Permanent Chelsea Manager market, with Steve Holland trading as favourite to become the latest man to sip from the proverbial poisoned chalice.

Holland is part of the Chelsea fabric after being an assistant manager at the Bridge between 2011-2017 and that included a brief stint as caretaker manager in 2015, although perhaps Abramovich will look to appoint a bigger name instead.

Gianfranco Zola is currently assistant to Sarri and there’s clearly scope for him to be promoted from within - he's 12/1 with Paddy Power to be next in the hot seat - although one wonders if the Chelsea legend is regarded as manager material considering his modest record with Watford and West Ham United.

Next Chelsea Manager Betting Odds

There is nearly always betting odds available when it comes to the next Chelsea manager, with the bookmakers constantly pricing up a Chelsea manager market based on the fact that nobody ever lasts long in the hot seat.

Paddy Power, BetVictor and Betfair are among those firms where you’ll often find next Chelsea manager odds and there are always “big names” featuring on the latest shortlist and often a few former managers to boot.

The latest “buzz” names include Zinedine Zidane and Laurent Blanc, two Frenchman who were highly successful during their playing days and would command a hefty ransom to become the latest Chelsea manager. However, with Zidane recently taking the vacant Real Madrid post, he is unlikely to be seeking work elsewhere.

Diego Simeone - who is also a contender for the Liverpool manager job should it become available - is someone who has been linked with the Chelsea post for several years and there’s nearly always betting available on the Atletico Madrid manager, while John Terry and Frank Lampard are now names that crop up after they both took a foray into club management.

Lampard, in particular, appears to have grand designs as far as the Chelsea job is concerned and the current Derby manager is one of the most popular Blues players of all time, epitomising the Jose Mourinho era at the club. He's 33/1 with Unibet to be the next boss of his former employers.

If Chelsea part company with their latest manager, then every bookmaker under the sun will offer next manager odds and you will find that the prices change quickly according to the latest news or media reports.

This trend will follow suit for markets at other Premier League clubs, with fluctuating odds relevant to the next Arsenal manager job and Everton manager job markets.

When it comes to betting on next Chelsea manager, it’s worth understanding which candidates are on the apparent shortlist and the ones who are likely to be interviewed. Some will rule themselves out quickly for a particular role.
