Next Manchester United Manager Odds

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was the next Premier League manager to be sacked after the Norwegian's position at Old Trafford became untenable. A 4-1 defeat at Watford was the final nail in the coffin although things haven't got much better since then.

It seems clear that the Red Devils didn't have a ready-made replacement for Solskjaer who was presumed to be taking charge until the end of the season, with Ralf Rangnick agreeing to become the interim manager at Old Trafford until the end of the 2021-22 campaign.

However, the speculation will now be centred around which candidate will get the job on a permanent basis at the end of the season. Rangnick was originally favourite although performances on the pitch have not been convincing. Therefore, it could be Mauricio Pochettino who steps into the breach.

Could Rangnick Be Promoted From Within?

Ralf Rangnick has agreed to take interim charge of Manchester United until the end of the season. The German arrived with an impressive track record and Jurgen Klopp commented his disappointment at the north-west outfit actually appointing a decent manager.

We already saw Solskjaer promoted from within after taking charge on a caretaker basis, with Rangnick getting the perfect audition to get the job on a permanent basis. The former Leipzig coach is credited with operating a high press and an organised team, with the bookies keeping him on side in the market.

However, the early signs are that Rangnick will either leave the club or move upstairs in the summer. It appears as though there's a rift in the dressing room that the interim boss can't seemingly mend. A recent 1-0 defeat at home to Wolves saw Luke Shaw comment that not everyone seemed together on the pitch.

Could Pochettino Swap PSG for United?

Before taking the PSG job, Mauricio Pochettino was trading at odds-on to become the next Manchester United manager, especially after Jose Mourinho was sacked three seasons ago. However, Solskjaer was able to make his caretaker role permanent and the Argentine instead headed to the Ligue 1 giants.

Pochettino continues to take charge of a Paris Saint-Germain side who seem destined to be French champions this season, although the 49-year-old is apparently open to the idea of a return to England and the possibility of becoming the next Manchester United manager.

While Pochettino never actually won anything in England with Tottenham Hotspur, he did guide the London club to a Champions League final and could be interested in resurrecting the fortunes of a team who are currently well off the pace domestically and in Europe.

Brendan Rodgers Now Third Favourites in United Betting

Brendan Rodgers likes to keep his cards close to his chest. It might be that he stays put at Leicester City for the next few years, although one feels as though there is some underlying ambition that has previously seen him take charge of Celtic and Liverpool.

Rodgers is a highly popular figure at the King Power Stadium and he recently saw a patched-up team beat Liverpool over the festive period. There has been money for the Northern Irishman to become the next manager of Manchester United and we could see it happening in the summer.

Interestingly, Rodgers was trading at 33/1 with Paddy Power on this betting market last summer, 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 Kelechi Iheanacho have thrived thanks to his coaching.

Despite being unfairly criticised during his time in charge of Liverpool, 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. Rodgers is among the favourites with Unibet to be the next Manchester United manager.

Ten Hag Among Next United Manager Favourites

Erik ten Hag has been linked with a number of vacant Premier League managerial positions and the Dutchman is now trading at single figures to replace Solskjaer. We've seen the Ajax manager featuring prominently in the Next Tottenham Hotspur Manager market and now he could be open to the position at Old Trafford.

Ten Hag has been in charge at Ajax since 2017 and famously guided the Amsterdam club to the semi-finals of the Champions League three seasons ago before they were beaten by Tottenham after sitting in the box seat.

Ajax are currently having a brilliant time of things in their Champions League group and they finished top of the section, earning them a favourable last sixteen clash against Benfica. It seems that Ten Hag will eventually earn a plum role in Europe but will it be the one at Old Trafford?

Odds For Free Agent Zidane Drift

Zinedine Zidane achieved great things with Real Madrid during his two spells with the giant Spanish club, with the Frenchman having won two La Liga titles at the Bernabeu although his real legacy was landing three Champions League crowns. He has worked with some of the best players in the world - including Cristiano Ronaldo already - and might relish the challenge that could come available at Old Trafford.

There were strong rumours linking Zidane to the Manchester United hot seat, with the 49-year-old having left Real Madrid earlier this year and perhaps he would enjoy a project where there's a talented squad of players at his disposal who are clearly not being coached properly right now.

Although he is among the favourites, there is some doubt about how much desire Zidane has to work in English football, although his former France team-mate Emmanuel Petit claims his old colleague is now learning English to further his managerial career.

“If you are a manager of a football club you need to speak different languages,” Petit told bookmakers.co.uk. “I know Zinedine speaks different languages but I’m pretty sure English is not one of them.

“There are so many examples of wrong decisions in football – not necessarily the wrong decision about someone’s ability, but about the dressing room being a right fit given all the different nationalities.

“Communication is very important, so if you do not speak the language when you arrive at a club like Manchester United, that could be a big problem.

“I’ve been told that he has been learning English recently, so I think he knows it’s important for his career, but Zinedine being linked with Manchester United – I don’t believe it, to be honest.

“Of course, he’s a big name but he never played in the Premier League and has very little connection with it, so as I said, I don’t believe it.”

Reports from France suggest Zidane is content to take a back seat from management while he waits for his old colleague Didier Deschamps to step aside from the national team job, which he’s expected to do after Qatar 2022.

“That’s probably in his mind,” said Petit. “I’m pretty sure after the 2022 World Cup Deschamps will leave the national team and join a club, he hinted at it in a press conference the other day.

“Zinedine has been mentioned as the next France manager for years, ever since he left Madrid the first time, so it would not be a surprise for anyone if that was his next job.” Zidane is among the favourites with Unibet to replace Solskjaer as United's next manager.

Ten Hag Among Next United Manager Favourites

Erik ten Hag has been linked with a number of vacant Premier League managerial positions and the Dutchman is now trading at single figures to replace Solskjaer. We've seen the Ajax manager featuring prominently in the Next Tottenham Hotspur Manager market and now he could be open to the position at Old Trafford.

Ten Hag has been in charge at Ajax since 2017 and famously guided the Amsterdam club to the semi-finals of the Champions League three seasons ago before they were beaten by Tottenham after sitting in the box seat.

Ajax are currently having a brilliant time of things in their Champions League group and they have won all four of their matches, scoring fourteen goals and conceding just twice. It could be the perfect audition for this huge role with enormous potential.

Hasenhuttl Might be Keen on Position

Another Premier League manager faring well with more limited resources is Ralph Hasenhuttl and the Southampton FC head coach is potentially reaching the end of his time at St Mary’s.

It was a challenging 2020/21 campaign for the Saints which saw them start brightly enough, although injuries have hit them hard in 2021 and a 9-0 thrashing at the hands of the Red Devils in February 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.

Allegri Seems Content to Stay in Italy

Max Allegri was almost in danger of becoming a forgotten man until returning to Juventus this summer. 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 so it is 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 a Champions League team in England, with the ownership and direction of Manchester United frequently brought into question.

Former United Midfielder Fletcher Might Be An Option

United fans might wish for a former United midfielder to replace Solskjaer, but they might have had Roy Keane in their mind, not Darren Fletcher. Fletcher has been coaching the club's under-16s as he goes through the process of getting his full quota of coaching badges.

However, as Solskjaer and others have found out before him, managing one of the biggest clubs in the world is not easy with high expectations and a constant demand for winning trophies. Appointing Fletcher would be a risk, as is the appointment of any manager, but this would surely be too much for Fletcher to handle right now. The Scot was high on many of the leading bookmakers' markets after Solskjaer's sacking, but the money has cooled on Fletcher to replace the Norwegian.

The Man United Betting Money Comes for Valverde

Ernesto Valverde was apparently contacted by Manchester United. However, this was related to the prospect of taking the Red Devils manager job on an interim basis by all accounts. Whether or not the 57-year-old would have been open to a short-term contract at Old Trafford is open to question.

Valverde was in charge of Barcelona between 2017 and 2020, with the Spaniard having previously managed Athletic Bilbao and it might be that he's open to the idea of a short-term contract in England, although he has now experience of coaching outside of his own country.

Valverde did steer Barca to two La Liga titles and worked with superstars such as Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar before the latter defected to PSG. Therefore, he has experience of working with big names.
