Next Cardiff City Manager Odds

Cardiff City are on the lookout for a new manager following news that Sabri Lamouchi has left the club after contract talks between the Frenchman and Bluebirds’ owner Vincent Tan broke down.

Lamouchi lead Cardiff to a 21st-place finish in the Championship last season, overseeing a total of 18 matches, winning six and drawing two, equating to a 33% win percentage. This was a decent effort considering that the Bluebirds managed 49 points in total, with the Frenchman earning 20 of them.

It will be interesting to see what the future holds for the club, as the Welsh outfit will be keen to avoid another scrap against relegation from the Championship.

Sol Bamba Odds: 1/6

Cardiff legend, Sol Bamba, has been linked with the job having reportedly been offered it by their owner.

The 38-year-old made 112 league appearances for the Bluebirds between 2016 and 2021 and was recently their assistant manager under Lamouchi. This could be a popular choice among fans of the club, while offering the former Ivory Coast international defender a superb chance to start his managerial career at a high level.

Bamba is priced at 1/6 to be named as Lamouchi’s successor - click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!

Nathan Jones Odds: 9/1

Nathan Jones has emerged as one of the main contenders for the vacancy at Cardiff, following his bizarre spell at Southampton.

Jones started his youth playing career at Cardiff, while his coaching career began at Brighton in 2013, serving as an assistant manager to the likes of Oscar Garcia, Sami Hyypia and Chris Hughton.

As a manager, Jones’ main success was with Luton Town, having earned promotion from League Two with the Hatters in 2016/17 via a second-place finish. The 49-year-old also laid down the foundations for Luton in 2018/19, leaving them second in League One in January before taking the Stoke City job where he won just six of his 38 games in charge.

Jones made a shock return to Luton and turned their Championship fortunes on their head, having helped them survive from what looked like an impossible situation towards the end of 2019/20 season, before overseeing their qualification for the play-offs last season.

The Welshman will be keen to bounce back having lost his job at Southampton on 12th February, perhaps building a project like that of Cardiff would be an interesting prospect for the 49-year-old.

Jones is priced at 9/1 to move to the Cardiff City Stadium.

Kevin Phillips Odds: 16/1

Kevin Phillips has reportedly been considered for the role at Cardiff, as the 49-year-old looks to enhance his managerial career following a successful spell with South Shields.

The former England international had coached at the likes of Leicester City, Derby County and Stoke City, before moving back up the the North East to manager South Shields. With the latter, he managed to win the 2022/23 Northern Premier League title with two games to spare, before departing via mutual consent.

Phillips is priced at 16/1 for a surprise move to Cardiff.

Chris Wilder Odds: 16/1

Following his departure from Watford, Chris Wilder has been linked with the role at Cardiff.

The 55-year-old managed both Watford and Middlesbrough during the 2022/23 campaign, with the former role seeing him win just three of his 11 matches in charge.

At Boro, Wilder won 18 of his 45 matches in charge at the Riverside Stadium with his record being significantly worsened following a run of two wins in his last 11 matches which left the Teesiders in the relegation zone. However, despite this setback, Wilder will be fondly remembered for times at other clubs he has managed.

Notably, Wilder took Sheffield United to the Premier League via finishing as runner-up in the Championship during the 2018/19 season, this was after winning League One with the Blades in 2016/17. On top of this, he has also managed promotions with the likes of Alfreton Town, Oxford United and Northampton Town.

Cardiff are priced at 16/1 to appoint Wilder as manager.

Neil Warnock Odds: 20/1

Ex-Bluebirds manager, Neil Warnock, has been linked with a sensational return to the club following the end of his contract at Huddersfield Town.

The 74-year-old helped Huddersfield survive in their Championship relegation battle during the 2022/23 season, despite joining in bleak circumstances. Warnock oversaw seven wins and four draws in 16 matches, equating to a 44% win percentage in what was his second spell at Town, having previously managed them between 1993 and 1995.

Warnock has a good relationship with Cardiff, having earned them a shock promotion from the Championship during the 2017/18 season and would likely be welcomed back with open arms by fans of the club.

Warnock is priced at 20/1 to return to the club.

Lee Bowyer Odds: 16/1

Lee Bowyer is also in contention for the job at Cardiff, having been out of work since July 2022.

The former Leeds United midfielder has plenty of managerial experience, as the 45-year-old managed the Addicks between March 2018 and 2021, winning 64 and drawing 37 of his matches in charge, leading them to promotion to the Championship back in 2018/18 via the play-offs.

Following his spell at Charlton, Bowyer decided to return to his former club Birmingham City in March 2021, where he had a less successful spell with the then cash-strapped club. Bowyer oversaw just 17 wins in 59 matches until the end of his reign in July.

Bowyer is priced at 20/1 to be named as Cardiff’s next permanent manager.
