Next Manchester United Manager Odds

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has nearly reached the two-year milestone since taking full charge at Manchester United FC, although many are speculating that this high-profile club could make a change at the end of the 2020/21 season, with the Red Devils likely to miss out on the Premier League title and they were also dumped out of the Champions League in the group stage. We look at the candidates who are likeliest to take charge according to the bookies.

Next Manchester United Manager Odds

On 28 March 2019, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer signed a three-year deal to become the permanent manager of Manchester United and it appears as though the Norwegian is going to comfortably make it to his two-year anniversary despite having to weather several storms in the process.

Although the Red Devils look highly unlikely to win the 2020/21 Premier League title, they sit relatively comfortably in the top four of the table and United have averaged nearly two points per top flight match which keeps them on course to play Champions League football again next season.

However, it remains to be seen whether Solskjaer is the long-term managerial answer at Old Trafford and many still refer to him as a supply teacher, with United having started the campaign sluggishly which saw him trading as favourite to be next Premier League manager to be sacked .

Perhaps Manchester United will enjoy some European glory in the form of the Europa League this season and Solskjaer did engineer an unbeaten Premier League run which stretched from 1 November all the way through to the end of January before Sheffield United claimed a surprise win at Old Trafford.

Even so, it’s the blue half of Manchester which are once again set to have the bragging rights and United’s wait for a first league title since 2013 will continue despite having the financial clout and squad to feasibly compete for major domestic honours under the Norwegian.

Next Permanent Manchester United Manager

For a long time, Mauricio Pochettino was trading at odds-on to become the next Manchester United FC, although the former Tottenham manager has now joined Paris Saint-Germain and it’s Massimiliano Allegri who is the 5/2 favourite with Bookmaker Paddy Power to replace Solskjaer.

Allegri is almost in danger of becoming a forgotten man although we shouldn’t forget that the Italian is a high-calibre football manager who steered Juventus to five consecutive Scudettos between 2015-2019 before stepping down from his role before the 2018/19 campaign had even ended.

The 53-year-old is the most successful Juve manager of all time in terms of the win rate that he enjoyed at the Turin club and it’s little surprise to find him trading among the favourites to become the next Manchester United manager, although little is known of whether Allegri has any real appetite to take charge at Old Trafford.

For starters, the former Milan coach has never managed outside of Italy and it would be a big ask for Allegri to leave his native country and take charge at a club who have grand ambitions but currently operate as the fifth or sixth-best team in England, with the ownership and direction of Manchester United frequently brought into question.

It does appear that Allegri is getting bored of being out of work right now and has been linked to a number of high-profile vacancies, with a recent appearance on Italy’s Dancing with the Stars seeing the Italian manager state that he’s “bored with doing nothing” and that’s the clearest indication that he’s ready to return to football management.

Brendan Rodgers Slashed in Betting to be Man United Boss

Brendan Rodgers is not only trading short on the Next Arsenal Manager betting market, the Northern Irishman has also now climbed to second favourite when it comes to the Manchester United manager’s position and it’s easy to see the current Leicester City boss leaving the King Power Stadium for an even higher-profile position within the Premier League.

Interestingly, Rodgers was trading at 33/1 with Paddy Power on this betting market only a few months ago, although the 48-year-old is now regarded as a leading contender to take charge at Old Trafford and he has previously shown plenty of ambition when leaving Celtic abruptly to take charge of Leicester City.

Rodgers has done sterling work at the Midlands club and the Foxes are now regarded as one of the leading teams in the division, with the former Liverpool boss having created an attack-minded team where players such as James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and James Justin have thrived thanks to his coaching.

Despite being unfairly criticised during his time in charge of Liverpool FC, Rodgers was there between 2012-2015 and nearly engineered a title success during the 2013/14 campaign, with the manager creating an exciting Reds side who had a win rate of over 50% during his time at the club.

Hassenhuttl Third Favourite to Become United Manager

Another Premier League manager faring well with more limited resources is Ralph Hasenhuttl and the Southampton FC head coach is now trading at 9/1 with Paddy Power to become the next permanent manager at Manchester United Football Club, with the Austrian potentially reaching the end of his time at St Mary’s.

It’s been a challenging 2020/21 campaign for the Saints which saw them start brightly enough, although injuries have hit them hard in recent months and a 9-0 thrashing at the hands of the Red Devils wasn’t exactly the sort of job advertisement which would have endeared the Old Trafford board to the 53-year-old.

However, the former RB Leipzig manager has far more experience than Solskjaer and perhaps his swashbuckling style of football will be music to the ears of Manchester United supporters who demand an attacking dimension to their team’s play, with fans yearning for the style of play that was visible under Sir Alex Ferguson for decades as the silverware accumulated.

Could Nagelsmann Be on Manchester United Shortlist?

Like Allegri, Julian Nagelsmann has never managed outside of his homeland although the German is slightly different by virtue of the fact that he’s only 33-years-old and his managerial career to date has been fairly fledgling. Even so, the former centre-back was a roaring success at 1899 Hoffenheim before getting the opportunity to manage at RB Leipzig and he steered the latter to the Champions League semi-finals last season.

The fact that Leipzig were unable to stop Chelsea coming in for Timo Werner illustrates where the Bundesliga club are sitting in the European pecking order and it would be interesting to see what happened if Nagelsmann or his representatives received any sort of approach from Manchester United, especially as his age is indicative of the fact that he could set down a long-term plan at a north-west outfit who have suffered from a lack of forward thinking.

For now, Nagelsmann remains in charge at the Red Bull Arena and he will continue to manage one of the leading teams in Germany who knocked Tottenham out of the Champions League last season. However, his odds could come tumbling from 10/1 at Paddy Power to a much shorter price should the German’s ambitions include taking charge at a big English club.

Howe, Zidane and Benitez Also Among United Front Runners

Managing Manchester United will always be a big job and eventually the time will come for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to step down, whether that’s at the end of the 2020/21 season or further into the future. When the time arrives for the Norwegian to call it a day, there won’t be a shortage of high-profile candidates expressing an interest in taking charge of the Red Devils.

Eddie Howe is trading at 10/1 with Paddy Power right now and has the advantage of being out of work but also having plenty of experience managing in the English Premier League, although whether the former Bournemouth gaffer has a strong enough track record remains to be seen after largely managing the Cherries during his time in the dugout.

Zinedine Zidane is back in the hot seat at the Bernabeu for a second occasion and the Frenchman has delivered La Liga and Champions League titles to the Spanish giants during his time with the club, although it might be that he’s ready to eventually come to England and the former world player of the year certainly has the right sort of experience when it comes to managing big ego’s in the dressing room.

The same applies to Rafael Benitez who is a free agent at the time of writing. The Spaniard recently walked away from Chinese Super League club Dalian Professional and previously held a string of high-profile positions including several years in charge of Liverpool. It might be that Benitez wouldn’t bring himself to manage the Reds, although stranger things have happened.
