Next Manchester United Manager Odds

We have had some significant movement in the Manchester United manager betting market over the past few days. The bookies have continued to shorten the odds of Erik ten Hag, with the Manchester Evening News speculating the Ajax manager could be arriving at Old Trafford to take charge of the Red Devils.

Ten Hag has enjoyed plenty of success in the Netherlands, and his Ajax team are challenging to win their third Eredivisie title under his management, with the 52-year-old seemingly in pole position to replace Ralf Rangnick in the coming weeks and months.

Mauricio Pochettino looks likely to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season, and he's second favourite to become United manager, while Thomas Tuchel is third in the betting but remains committed to Chelsea for the time being.

Ten Hag Now Favourite to Replace Rangnick

At the age of 52, Erik ten Hag might now feel as though it's the right time to take the plunge and assume the hot seat at Old Trafford, with the bookies making him their odds-on favourite. There are news outlets reporting that Ajax chief executive Edwin van der Sar is looking for replacements in light of the United speculation.

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. It has recently been reported the Dutchman has been contacted by Manchester United regarding the position.

It seems Ten Hag will eventually earn a plum role in Europe, but will it be the one at Old Trafford? It has been suggested the Ajax manager is Manchester United's preferred candidate although much comes down to whether he has the ability to reshape a squad at the English club.

Pochettino Now 11/4 to Swap PSG for United?

Some of the best betting apps cut their betting odds on Mauricio Pochettino following Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League defeat against Real Madrid, with a last-16 exit leading to speculation that the club's Qatari owners will now look to make a change.

PSG had been 2-0 up on aggregate at the Bernabeu before a quickfire Karim Benzema hat-trick dumped them out of the competition, with Pochettino having been linked to the Manchester United position for the past few years; he was originally favourite on this market when Jose Mourinho was sacked at Old Trafford.

Pochettino may not be confident of keeping his job at the Parc des Princes, and there have been ongoing rumours that he's struggling to manage a dressing room packed with big egos including Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. Ultimately, a return to England could be on the cards.

Would Tuchel Look to Switch From Chelsea?

Chelsea were recently rocked by the UK government sanctioning their owner Roman Abramovich, with the Russian having bankrolled the Blues for the past two decades, and it now appears as though the London side are going to be severely limited in terms of the budgets available to pay player wages along with transfer fees.

The situation is uncertain, and Thomas Tuchel might feel as though this is an opportune time to leave a club that he steered to Champions League success last term, with the German having previously been in charge of Borussia Dortmund and PSG.

It would be interesting to see if Manchester United reach out to Tuchel considering that players at Stamford Bridge can't be offered new contracts at the current time.

Mancini Linked to Manchester United after Italy Blow Up

Roberto Mancini has already won a Premier League title with Manchester City, and the Italian could be winging his way back to England, according to the latest reports. It seems inevitable the 57-year-old will part company with the Italy national team after a shock defeat against North Macedonia.

That reverse means Italy won't be competing at the 2022 World Cup despite winning the delayed Euro 2020 last summer. Mancini will be considering his next options, and he is an experienced manager who has enjoyed spells with Galatasaray, Internazionale and Zenit Saint Petersburg prior to taking the Azzurri job.

Mancini has an impressive track record and won three Scudettos with Inter Milan, with Manchester United likely to explore this potential option if he becomes available, despite his history with one of their rivals.

Could Rangnick Be Promoted From Within?

Ralf Rangnick 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 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, Gary Neville recently suggested that Rangnick has next to no chance of getting the gig on a permanent basis, with the German likely to be keeping the seat warm from now until the end of the season. United look unlikely to finish in the top four this season, and they are also out of the Champions League.

Could Conte Make a Shock Switch from Tottenham?

Antonio Conte apparently passed up the chance to manage Manchester United when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a dead man walking, and he's now trying to steer Tottenham Hotspur to a top-four spot in the Premier League.

However, it wouldn't be a massive surprise if Conte defected to Old Trafford in the summer, with the Italian clearly an ambitious manager who might look at the project at United as one where he could resurrect the fortunes of an enormous club.

We know that Conte has arguably the strongest track record out of any club manager in the world, and the former Inter and Juventus manager previously delivered instant Premier League success at Chelsea during his first season.

Simeone and Ancelotti Could Be Prepared to Leave Madrid

The Manchester United manager's job is one of the biggest coaching roles in world football, with Diego Simeone and Carlo Ancelotti also among the favourites to take charge at Old Trafford. Simeone has been in charge of Atletico Madrid since 2011 and it might be the case that he has little desire to manage in England, although the 51-year-old is still young enough to take on a new project.

Simeone has regularly managed to get a tune out of an Atleti side that have won two La Liga titles under his stewardship, with his pragmatic style of football a potential turn-off for United supporters, although his man management skills could certainly get the best out of star talent within the ranks.

Ancelotti loves managing at a big club, and he didn't need a lot of persuading to up sticks at Everton and take charge of Real Madrid. It appears the former Milan and Chelsea boss is going to win this season's La Liga title with Los Merengues, although he could be interested in returning to England and taking charge of the Red Devils.

Brendan Rodgers Among United Betting Outsiders

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. He's also one of the favourites on the Premier League Sack Race market right now.

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. However, a 4-1 FA Cup defeat at Nottingham Forest was a big setback for the Midlands club and perhaps that means that the Northern Irishman is looking at an exit strategy.

Interestingly, Rodgers was trading at 33/1 with Paddy Power on this betting market last summer, 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 that had a win rate of over 50% during his time at the club.

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 that would have endeared the Old Trafford board to the 54-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.

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 “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.

Allegri Seems Content to Stay in Italy

Max Allegri was almost in danger of becoming a forgotten man until returning to Juventus last 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.
