Next England Manager Odds

Gareth Southgate has stated his desire to continue leading the England national team forward and is now focused on steering the Three Lions to the 2022 Qatar World Cup where they’ll be one of the favourites. However, it’s possible that he might decide to stand down after this tournament and there is speculation increasing as to who might replace someone who has recently steered England to the final of the 2020 European Championship.

Gareth Southgate has proven to be a successful England manager since replacing Sam Allardyce. While there was bitter disappointment at losing the Euro 2020 final on penalties to Italy, the fact that the Three Lions had reached their first major tournament final since 1966 was a cause for celebration and the fans will now turn their attention towards the 2022 World Cup.

It’s far from clear whether Southgate has the appetite to continue beyond the Qatar tournament and it might be that we know the identity of his successor well before the former Middlesbrough manager decides to step down from his role with the English FA, with several betting apps now having a Next England Manager betting market which is attracting plenty of interest.

Next Permanent England Manager

Dean Smith is currently trading as the bookmakers' favourite to become the Next England Manager, with Paddy Power offering odds of 5/1 that the Aston Villa manager replaces Gareth Southgate and he might be a good fit as far as national team boss is concerned.

Smith has earned a reputation for playing attractive football, with the fifty-year-old starting his career with Walsall before getting the chance to take charge of Brentford and he was doing an admirable job at Griffin Park before fulfilling a lifelong dream to manage an Aston Villa team who have been promoted from the Championship since he took the reins.

The Brummie seems to fit the right sort of personality profile that the Football Association always desire from suitable candidates, while he has cemented the Villans’ place in the top-flight and might feel as though a move to international management would come at the right point in his career after starting off from such humble roots.

The bookies clearly want to keep Smith onside in the Next England Manager betting market and it would mean that the Villa boss can remain in charge for another full season at club level before potentially stepping into the England fray, while he would be able to continue working with the likes of Jack Grealish and Tyrone Mings.

Would Sean Dyche Be On The England Shortlist?

Many people would put Sean Dyche into a similar bracket as Sam Allardyce. The current Burnley manager has been successful at Turf Moor due to a pragmatic style of football which allows the opposition to see plenty of the ball but create effective openings from counter-attacks and set pieces.

Perhaps that is doing Dyche a disservice considering that any manager might have to take the same approach in the Premier League with a transfer and playing budget which is among the smallest in the entire division. The 48-year-old has been in charge at the Lancashire club since 2012 and is hugely popular among Clarets supporters, while he’s also a straight talker when it comes to his various media duties.


Bookmakers' Next Permanent Manager Markets


Dyche strikes us as a very proud Englishman who would relish the chance to take the ultimate job in football management, with the Kettering-born coach having previously helped Burnley qualify for the Europa League which was something approaching a minor miracle on a shoestring budget.

Paddy Power are only prepared to chalk up 5/1 about the former Watford boss replacing Gareth Southgate although there are question marks over whether fans would warm to his perceived style of football, even if that changed in accordance with managing a group of highly-talented players.

Howe Waiting in the Wings for Next Manager Job

Eddie Howe is currently trading as the bookmaker's third-favourite to become the Next England Manager, with Paddy Power offering odds of 7/1 that the ex-Bournemouth manager replaces Gareth Southgate and you can understand why this move might potentially happen.

Howe previously demonstrated an ability to develop young players at the Vitality Stadium, elevating the Cherries from League One to Premier League in the process. He also helped Bournemouth thrive on a relative shoestring budget in a highly competitive league until recently, while the 42-year-old has a wealth of experience when it comes to working with English players and could be a nice fit as far as the FA is concerned.

It’s not clear whether Howe eventually wants to manage the national team considering the baggage that comes with the job, although he has time on his side and might want to try his hand at a new venture considering out of work since leaving Bournemouth at the end of the 2020/21 season, having previously enjoyed a stint at the same club between 2008-2011.

Could Lampard or Gerrard Be Promoted to Head Coach?

Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard dived into football management at exactly the same time, with the summer of 2018 seeing the pair enter high-profile jobs. The former enjoyed a successful first season in charge of Derby County and steered the Rams to the Championship play-off final before Aston Villa beat them.

Similarly, while Gerrard didn’t manage to topple Celtic during his first season in charge of Glasgow Rangers, the Liverpool legend gave a good account of himself and followed this up with an outstanding Scottish Premiership title success this time around, while the former Liverpool captain also steered the Gers to the business end of the Europa League.

Lampard and Gerrard are 41 and 40 respectively, ages that suggest that they might not consider themselves to become international management material for a decade or two considering they both clearly relish the day-to-day involvement of coaching a team.

However, would either of these proud Englishmen turn down the chance to manage their country’s national team if the opportunity arose? Gerrard made 114 appearances for the Three Lions between 2000-2014 and he would command the respect of each player that was in the dressing room because of this fact.

Similarly, Lampard’s initial successes at Derby have been down to players looking up to someone who appeared 106 time in an England shirt and scored no less than 29 goals for his country. While the Romford-born manager initially achieved success when arriving for his first season in charge at Chelsea FC, the ex-midfielder was unable to deliver this time around and is now looking for his next opportunity.

Lampard is 12/1 in the next England manager odds. At 5/1 in the betting on the next Swansea boss he seems much more likely to return to club management rather than waiting on Gareth Southgate to step aside.

“If he wants to wait for the national job, I think that could be a long wait,” Chelsea legend Tore Andre Flo told bookmakers.co.uk.

“You’re never quite sure when that might come up, but I would have thought he’ll take a job before that.

“That’s just my opinion though and that’s what I think he should do. Sooner or later, clubs will be asking for him.”

Indeed, with outgoing Swans manager Steve Cooper vacating the manager’s position at the Liberty Stadium, Flo believes Lampard would be a good fit there or at any other team in England’s top tiers.

He said: “I think he would suit most jobs to be honest. He did well at Chelsea, I believe, apart from the dip in form at the end of his time there, which can happen anybody.

“I’m pretty sure he will be back at the top level soon enough.”

Brendan Rodgers Proving Himself in England Again

It’s possible that the Football Association will continue to hire English-only managers to take charge of the senior team, with Roy Hodgson, Allardyce and Southgate suggesting that’s a course they want to take after the previous tenures of Sven-Goran Eriksson and Fabio Capello.

However, while Brendan Rodgers hails from Northern Ireland, the 48-year-old has been managing in England, Wales and Scotland for his entire career and clearly understands football in this country as a result. Getting the Three Lions gig would almost make him an honorary Englishman.

Rodgers has made a huge success of things at Leicester City and steered them to fifth place in the Premier League for two consecutive seasons along with an FA Cup triumph, while he previously did well with Liverpool and the Reds came fairly close to winning the Premier League title in 2014.

Since then, he has won two domestic trebles north of the border with Celtic and perhaps he’ll eventually aspire to become a national team manager, with Steven Gerrard previously praising his man-management when the pair worked together at Anfield.

Benitez and Mourinho Trading at 20/1 for England Job

Rafael Benitez is now the Everton FC manager after recently leaving Chinese Super League club Dalian Professional, with the Spaniard having been linked to a number of different teams across Europe since he became a free agent before opting to take charge of the Toffees.

The Spaniard is widely regarded as one of the best club managers in the world, having held a number of high-profile jobs throughout his career. Prior to being hired by Newcastle, he was in charge of Real Madrid, Napoli, Chelsea, Internazionale, Liverpool and Valencia. The England manager’s role is therefore unlikely to be daunting to the 61-year-old who might soon be ready to step down from club management.

Jose Mourinho is of similar age and his time at Manchester United and Chelsea might mark him out as England manager material, although the Portuguese made few friends at the Football Association thanks to his outspoken criticism of the governing body and particularly the referees in their employ.

Mourinho has talked about becoming an international manager at a later age although it might be his native Portugal who look to take him on board as and when Fernando Santos moves on from the role. It is clear that the 58-year-old is held in high regard in his homeland.
