Next Leicester City Manager Odds

Following Leicester City’s 2-0 loss to Newcastle United in the quarter-finals of the League Cup, many fans of the Foxes believe that Brendan Rodgers’ time is up as manager.

The Northern Irishman will go down in Leicester’s history regardless of what happens this season, having led them to fifth-placed finishes in the Premier League during the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons, as well as delivering the Foxes their first-ever FA Cup triumph in 2021, followed by Community Shield success at the start of the 2021/22 campaign.

Rodgers has managed the King Power Stadium club on 192 occasions, winning 89 matches, drawing 40 and losing 63, with this season being his worst by far in terms of victories, as Leicester currently sit in 13th place, following five wins in 18 games.

Sean Dyche Odds: 3/1

Despite coming in as the favourite for the Everton job should Frank Lampard be sacked, former Burnley manager Sean Dyche is the favourite to replace Rodgers as Leicester manager, which may come as a surprise to many.

Notably, something that could interest Leicester’s owners is the fact that during his time at Burnley, Dyche managed to lead the club to the Europa League qualifying stages following a seventh-place finish in the 2017/18 campaign. Showing that he has what it takes to take them back to where they aim to be.

On top of this, during his nine years at Turf Moor, Dyche built himself a reputation for being able to manage low-budget sides to success, having earned promotion from the Championship with the Clarets in 2013/14 and 2015/16 while maintaining Burnley’s Premier League status up until his sacking in 2021/22.

With Leicester in need of a shake-up in defence having leaked 31 goals in 18 matches, could Dyche’s profile fit the bill for what they need to push up the Premier League table?

Dyche is priced at 3/1 to become Leicester City’s next manager - click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!

Thomas Frank Odds: 5/1

Brentford manager Thomas Frank has also been linked with the role following the impressive job that he has done with the Bees.

The Danish manager notably managed to lead Brentford to the Premier League in the 2020/21 season via the play-offs and has since overseen his side earn a 13th-place finish in his first campaign as a Premier League manager, whilst accumulating 26 points from 18 matches this season - seeing the Bees sit ninth in the table.

Frank’s style of football would certainly be welcomed at Leicester, as his side tends to play an attractive style of football with a lot of intensity when defending and counter-attacking, whilst developing players, having initially signed the likes of Ivan Toney from Peterborough United.

Frank is priced at 5/1 to leave Brentford for Leicester.

Rafael Benitez Odds: 9/1

Former Everton manager Rafael Benitez is also on this list of candidates to replace Rodgers at Leicester.

Benitez has a glittering managerial career having won two La Liga titles at Valencia in the early 2000s and notably won Liverpool their fifth Champions League trophy following their incredible comeback win against AC Milan in Istanbul and is regarded as a legendary figure at Anfield because of this.

The 62-year-old has also had spells at both Inter Milan and Real Madrid, as well as at the likes of Chelsea on an interim basis and Napoli where he led them to a Coppa Italia win in 2013/14.

Although he did a decent job at Newcastle in consolidating their place in the top-flight after winning promotion from the Championship, his most recent spell at Everton may have put a dampener on his reputation, having only won seven of 22 matches, while falling out with several key players such as Lucas Digne and James Rodriguez.

Benitez is priced at 9/1 to become Leicester’s next manager.

Marcelo Bielsa Odds: 10/1

Former Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa is reportedly also of interest to Leicester due to his impressive attacking style of play.

The 67-year-old was a cult hero at Elland Road, having earned the Whites promotion from the Championship in the 2019/20 season via winning the division as a whole. He also managed to consolidate their position in the Premier League during the 2020/21 campaign but was sacked following a poor performance in the following season.

During his time at Leeds, Bielsa won 81 of his 170 matches in charge, leaving him with a win percentage of 47.6%. In his managerial career, he has managed several impressive clubs, such as America, Velez Sarsfield, Athletic Bilbao and Marseille, while also coaching Argentina’s and Chile’s national teams.

Bielsa is priced at 10/1 to make a return to the Premier League with Leicester City.

Ralph Hasenhuttl Odds: 10/1

Recently sacked Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl is also reportedly on Leicester’s shortlist to replace Rodgers.

Hasenhuttl showed himself as a Premier League standard manager during his time at St Mary’s, having done well with a limited budget with the Saints, winning 59 and drawing 41 of his 173 matches.

Prior to his time at Southampton, Hasenhuttl managed to finish second with RB Leipzig in their debut Bundesliga season. The 55-year-old also won promotion to the Bundesliga with Ingolstadt in 2014/15 before consolidating their status in the top flight.

Leicester are priced at 10/1 to appoint Hasenhuttl as their next manager.

Mauricio Pochettino Odds: 10/1

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is the final manager on this list, with this job resembling a similar task to that which he performed during his time at Spurs, a talented squad in need of fresh ideas and recruits.

The 50-year-old was most recently manager of PSG and has missed out on a series of big jobs since his exit from the Parc des Princes, with the Argentian being linked with the Manchester United job prior to Erik ten Hag’s appointment.

Pochettino’s first job in England came all the way back in January 2013 when he managed Southampton up until May 2014, taking over from Nigel Adkins, laying the foundations for the Saints to challenge for Europe on a regular basis, having developed the likes of Adam Lallana, Jay Rodriguez, Jose Fonte, Toby Alderweireld, Morgan Schneiderlin and more.

Following his time at St Mary’s, Pochettino went on to manage Tottenham, where his management skills saw them progress from a side that regularly qualified for the Europa League to a club that regularly competed for Champions League football - notably reaching the Champions League final in 2019 when they finished as runners-up to Liverpool.

After his time at Spurs, Pochettino returned to his former club PSG, where he managed to win three trophies in two years, but, this and his lack of success in the Champions League saw patience wear thin between himself and the PSG hierarchy, resulting in his departure last summer.

Pochettino is priced at 10/1 to make a shock move and join the Foxes.
