Steve Bruce is currently favourite on the Premier League Sack Race betting market following Chelsea’s sacking of Frank Lampard and it could be that Newcastle United soon make the decision to part company with a manager who hasn’t achieved a great deal since taking charge of the Magpies in the summer of 2019.
Although Bruce did manage to keep Newcastle afloat in the top flight last season, the performances were largely uninspiring and United have continued in the same vein this time around, with the Tyneside outfit having averaged just one point per game at the halfway stage of the campaign and it’s enough to make the natives increasingly restless despite the absence of fans this season.
A number of bookmakers are now speculating over the future of Steve Bruce at Newcastle and they have re-opened their Next Newcastle United Manager betting market, with a certain Signor Benitez coming into the reckoning after the Spaniard recently decided to leave Chinese Super League club Dalian Professional.
Whether or not Benitez would consider a return to St James’ Park is an interesting question, although owner Mike Ashley might consider that it’s time for a change considering that Bruce is struggling to get a tune out of his existing squad and he has been given the chance to sign players along the way.

Rafa Favourite for Newcastle Return – But Does He Want Job?
Rafael Benitez would be the supporters’ choice of new manager, with the former Liverpool boss taking charge at the club as they were about to exit the Premier League towards the end of the 2015/16 season. While the 60-year-old was unable to keep Newcastle afloat, he was able to deliver them to promotion in the Championship the following season.
Benitez was regularly at odds with owner Mike Ashley during his time at the north-east club and perhaps he will rule out the prospect of taking charge at a club who remain theoretically up for sale despite a recent failed Saudi takeover which leaves the supporters frustrated with the current regime at St James’ Park.
Betting apps list Benitez as the favourite in the next Newcastle United manager betting markets, with the former Valencia manager trading anywhere between 7/4 and 6/1 at the time of writing, although it has been claimed that the manager won’t return to Newcastle unless there was a change of ownership.
The supporters will remain hopeful that there can be a new era at the club with Benitez guiding the way and this is someone who has a strong track record when it comes to winning silverware with respective clubs he has managed. However, Rafa’s affinity with Newcastle does not extend to the current owner and the club might have to look elsewhere.
Bookmakers' Next Permanent Manager Markets
Howe Favourite With Certain Bookies for Newcastle Job
Eddie Howe has been out of work since leaving Bournemouth at the end of the 2019/20 season, with the 43-year-old having been unable to keep the Cherries afloat in the Premier League and he was quick to fall on his sword at the Vitality Stadium and take a break from football management following his successful stint at the Dorset club.
It has now been several months since Howe held this coaching position and perhaps Newcastle will offer him an opportunity to get back into Premier League management, with the supporters likely to find him an attractive option should Benitez not have the desire to return to Tyneside.
There’s something of a Bournemouth connection already at St James’ Park when you consider that Matt Ritchie, Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser are all on the books at Newcastle and it might be that Howe is attracted to the possibility of resurrecting this massive English football club and steering them further up the table.
Howe has a modern and progressive football philosophy although he will be aware that the Premier League is far more competitive now than when Bournemouth arrived in the top flight a few seasons ago, with clubs like Wolves, Leeds and Leicester among those who are considerably stronger although Howe is as short as 11/4 to replace Bruce.

Could Steve Cooper Step Up From Swansea to Manage Newcastle?
Steve Cooper isn’t quite a household name compared to Benitez or Howe, although the 41-year-old is following in the footsteps of Roberto Martinez, Brendan Rodgers and Graham Potter by shining in the position of Swansea City FC manager and perhaps he could be attracted to a potential vacancy at Newcastle United.
Cooper was part of the England Under-16 and Under-17 set-up before getting the chance to manage the Swans and he’s made them promotion challengers in his time at the Liberty Stadium, with the young coach wanting his team to play attractive football and for his players to be brave on the ball.
Some bookmakers are going as short as 10/1 that Cooper replaces Steve Bruce and it would smack of a similar appointment to his predecessor Graham Potter taking charge of Brighton & Hove Albion, although the latter hasn’t always found life easy since arriving at the AMEX Stadium and it might be regarded as a risky appointment.
Laurent Blanc on the Newcastle Manager Betting Market Shortlist
It appears as though Laurent Blanc enjoys chasing the money as far as football management is concerned, with the 55-year-old having been in charge of Paris Saint-Germain between 2013-2016, with the Frenchman then having a long break before recently returning to management with Qatari side Al-Rayyan.
Blanc is enjoying a lucrative salary to manage in Qatar and perhaps the World Cup winner could come into the reckoning if Newcastle were the subject of some kind of takeover, with the former Manchester United defender trading between 10/1 and 14/1 to replace Steve Bruce, although there are other more viable alternatives.

Could Marco Silva Return to the Premier League?
Marco Silva arrived in England with a splash when earning rave reviews while in charge of Hull City despite the Portuguese failing to keep the Tigers in the Premier League. He was then installed as Head Coach at Watford FC and continued to impress in the top flight, with the club playing attacking football and earning some notable results.
However, the Hornets’ form dipped amid speculation that Everton were interested in landing the 43-year-old and the former Sporting manager was sacked at Vicarage Road before eventually taking charge of the Toffees, although Silva’s dream move only lasted eighteen months and he’s been out of work since.
Silva is still relatively young and might be interested in the opportunity of returning to the Premier League in a bid to restore his reputation, with the manager having enjoyed a bright start with all three of the English clubs he has managed and the Portuguese is anywhere between 16/1 and 20/1 on this market.

Alan Shearer as Short as 8/1 for Newcastle United Return
One notable name on the Next Newcastle United Manager betting market is Alan Shearer and it’s noticeable that his odds are as short as 8/1 to take charge of the Magpies for what would be the second time. The man is clearly a Newcastle legend and would arrive with plenty of supporter goodwill although he’s been a television pundit for several years.
Perhaps Shearer might give serious consideration to returning to the Newcastle hot seat if Mike Ashley came calling and several of the bookies are clearly taking no chances with their quotes about the former centre forward who would immediately earn the respect of the players within the camp.
However, bookmaker William Hill are prepared to quote 50/1 about Shearer which implies that it would take a huge leap of the imagination to picture the BBC man leaving that comfortable studio and putting his manager’s coat back on after previously failing to keep Newcastle afloat when being given a caretaker role.
