Next Manchester United Manager Odds
If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s time as Manchester United manager was a graph to represent his successes and failures, it would look like a really scary rollercoaster considering there have been some remarkable highs along with several abject lows. The bottom of the barrel was probably hit on Sunday 4 October 2020 when the Red Devils were spanked 6-1 at home to Tottenham Hotspur.
Indeed, the Norwegian admitted that this was the worst experience of his time at Old Trafford when it came to playing or coaching, with Solskjaer swiftly becoming the betting favourite to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked during the 2020/21 football season, although it’s a position that he’s assumed before and lived to fight another day.
We eagerly await to see whether the 47-year-old is given the chance to improve the fortunes of Manchester United on the pitch, with Solskjaer regarded as only part of the problem at a north-west giant who appear to have rudderless ownership which have allowed the current situation to happen thanks to a scattergun approach to signing players and a failure to land key targets.
However, it’s clear that Solskjaer won’t last until the end of 2020 unless the result improve dramatically on the pitch, something which did happen after lockdown. There are a number of betting customers now eyeing up the Next Manchester United Manager betting market and considering their options.
Next Permanent Manchester United Manager
For some Manchester United supporters, there seems to be an air of inevitability that Mauricio Pochettino will take charge at Old Trafford sooner rather than later. The Argentine was originally favourite to replace Jose Mourinho when the latter was sacked in December 2018, although the former Tottenham manager was overlooked in favour of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The latter’s caretaker stint then earned him the role on a permanent basis.
We’ve seen or heard little from Pochettino since he was removed from his position at the north London club in November 2019, although that essentially means that the 48-year-old has been enjoying a sabbatical for less than a year and perhaps the time could now be ripe for the former Southampton manager to take the reins at Manchester United and provide some much-needed direction.
Bookmaker William Hill offer 2/5 about Poch becoming next Red Devils manager and there’s no time limit on when he needs to be appointed. That means whether the Argentine is given the gig in the next few weeks, months or even some time in 2021, you would still win if you backed him to ultimately become the next permanent manager of United after Solskjaer.
Pochettino is widely regarded as transforming the fortunes of Tottenham Hotspur between 2014-2019, with the former Espanyol coach achieving a win rate of 54.3% and he took charge of Spurs for nearly 300 matches, although the question is not only whether Poch would be the number one target on Ed Woodward’s list but also whether this is an attractive proposition considering the current situation that the team find themselves in.

Max Allegri Remains Second Favourite for Red Devils Role
Massimiliano 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 at single figure odds 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 recently been linked to the possibility of managing AS Roma, 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.
Allegri is currently trading at 5/1 to take charge at Old Trafford and he’s seen by Paddy Power as the only viable rival to Pochettino at the time of writing. However, we’ve regularly witnessed “Next Manager Betting Markets” change quickly as rumours start to filter in and the potential sacking of Solskjaer will see the prices change straight away.
Nagelsmann Third Favourite to Become United Manager
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 25/1 with Paddy Power to a much shorter price should the German’s ambitions include taking charge at a big English club.
Twelve Managers Trading at 33/1 for United Job!
Luis Enrique knows what it’s like to manage at a big club having been in charge of Barcelona between 2014-2017, with the Spaniard now in charge of the national team and perhaps his head would be turned by any approach from Manchester United, with the 50-year-old having won two La Liga titles at the Nou Camp.
He’s trading at odds of 33/1 for this market along with a spate of other managers and Brendan Rodgers is another interesting candidate who has been getting a fine tune out of Leicester City since taking charge at the King Power Stadium. Rodgers has also managed Liverpool and knows English top-flight football inside out, with his ambition clear for all to see.
Erik ten Hag has been hovering as an outsider to become the next Manchester United manager on the betting market, with the Dutchman having been in charge of Ajax since 2017, while Ralf Rangnick is another manager trading at 33/1 and perhaps his experience could see the German materialise as one of the leading contenders.
Rangnick has most recently enjoyed two stints with RB Leipzig and there are several players who owe their European breakthrough to the 62-year-old, including Liverpool trio Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita. Whether at his age he represents the future at Old Trafford is another matter although we did see the Red Devils opt for Louis van Gaal as a stopgap measure a few seasons ago.
Incredibly, we’ve also got candiates such as Arsene Wenger, Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola featuring at 33/1 on Paddy Power’s Next Man United Manager betting market and it seems implausible that the current Manchester City boss would swap his situation at the Etihad Stadium with a far bleaker one at Old Trafford, while Ancelotti is also making waves at Everton.
Similarly, English pair Chris Wilder and Gareth Southgate can be ruled out due to a lack of experience when it comes to managing a top club. Wilder has done valiantly with Sheffield United but can’t be expected to seamlessly make the jump from Bramall Lane to Old Trafford, while Southgate remains part of the English FA furniture and has no desire to rock the boat.
