Next Manchester United Manager Odds

Manchester United could be on the lookout for a new manager soon, following a series of abysmal performances during the 2023/24 season under Erik ten Hag.

The Old Trafford club are seemingly having an identity crisis in terms of style of play and recruitment, culminating in their current plight, which has seen them win just 16 of 35 Premier League matches, leaving them with a points trajectory of 58, which would be their joint-worst in the Premier League era. The Red Devils are on course to potentially miss out on European football altogether next season should they not improve their results in a sharp fashion as they sit eight in the table.

United's only potential saving grace for this season is the fact that they will play in the FA Cup final, however, they face Manchester City at Wembley Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino Odds: 11/8

Mauricio Pochettino has slotted in as favourite for the United job following his recent departure from Chelsea.

The 52-year-old Argentinian coached Chelsea to a sixth-place finish and to the League Cup final in the 2023/24 season, improving on the Stamford Bridge club's dismal 12th-place finish in 2022/23.

Pochettino has a good record in England, having memorably guided Southampton to an eighth-place finish in the 2013/14 season, which was their highest Premier League finish since the 2002/03 season at the time.

On top of this, he developed Tottenham into a club that regularly qualified for the Champions League when he was manager of the Lilywhites between May 2014 and November 2019. The most defining moment of Pochettino's spell at Tottenham was when he reached the 2019 Champions League final despite not spending a single penny of transfer budget during the 2018/19 season.

Upon his sacking from Spurs, Pochettino also went on to manage in France at PSG, a club of which he played for between 2001 and 2003, however, his time at the Ligue 1 outfit was often blighted by inter-club politics. The 52-year-old won Ligue 1 there in 2021/22, while also winning the Coupe de France in 2020/21 as well as the Trophee des Champions.

Thomas Tuchel Odds: 3/1

Thomas Tuchel has emerged as one of the recent favourites for the expected vacancy at Old Trafford and will be able to look for a new role come the summer following the announcement that Bayern Munich would be parting ways with the 50-year-old in the summer.

During time at the Allianz Arena, Tuchel only managed to win the 2022/23 Bundesliga title following a turbulent 2023/24 campaign. Tuchel's managerial has been an impressive one though, having lead Chelsea to the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup in 2020/21, while at PSG, the German coach won five major honours in two and a half years, while finishing as runner-up in the 2020 Champions League final.

Tuchel's senior managerial career started at Mainz, most notably leading the club to a fifth-place finish during the 2010/11 season, seeing them qualify for the third qualifying round of the 2011/12 Europa League. The 50-year-old was eventually acquired by Borussia Dortmund in June 2015, where he managed to win the DFB Pokal in 2016/17, notably beating Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt along the way.

Gareth Southgate Odds: 9/2

Gareth Southgate is one of the shock favourites to become Manchester United's next manager. The current England manager is entering the final stages of his contract, with it set to expire following the conclusion of Euro 2024.

The 53-year-old has been in charge of England since 2016 after he was promoted to the senior team following his tenure with the U21 side. He guided them to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, before heartbreakingly losing the final of Euro 2020 to Italy on penalties at Wembley. The 2022 World Cup added to the disappointment as France beat them 2-1 in the quarter-finals.

Southgate’s only club managerial experience came between 2006 and 2009, as he managed Middlesbrough in the Premier League. He led them to two mid-table finishes before they were relegated in 2009. He lost his job early in the 2009/10 season.

Roberto De Zerbi Odds: 6/1

Reports have recently come out that Manchester United would be Roberto De Zerbi's dream job, while recent reports have also stated that an unamed Premier League team have triggered the Italian's release clause to cancel his gardening leave following his recent exit from Brighton.

In 89 games with the Seagulls, the Italian has won 38, drawn 22 and lost 29, giving him an impressive 42.7% win rate. Joining in September 2022, he led them to a sixth-place finish and a spot in the Europa League, securing European football for the first time in the club’s history. They finished the 2023/24 season in 11th-place.

Before joining Brighton, the Italian had notably been manager of the likes of Shakhtar Donetsk and Sassuolo. During his time in charge of Shakhtar, De Zerbi’s side were top of the table but, he left due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, while at Sassuolo, he oversaw 120 matches between July 2018 and May 2021 and achieved two eight-placed finishes.

Kieran McKenna Odds: 8/1

Another ex-Manchester United assistant manager in Kieran McKenna also features on this list of potential candidates to takeover from Erik ten Hag.

The 37-year-old joined the Old Trafford club all the way back in 2016 as the manager of their Under 18s, before being promoted to assistant manager under Jose Mourinho at the start of the 2018/19 season.

McKenna left the Reds in December 2021 following the dismissal of Solskjaer and has been manager of Ipswich Town ever since, leading the Tractor Boys to promotion from League One in 2022/23, his first full campaign in charge, since then, Ipswich have excelled and even earned back-to-back promotions via a second-place finish in the Championship this campaign with 96 points from 46 matches while scoring 92 times.

Graham Potter Odds: 12/1

Graham Potter has been frequently linked to the job at Manchester United due to having a close relationship with the Red Devils' incoming Sporting Director Dan Ashworth and INEOS.

The 48-year-old failed miserably while at Chelsea, however, that could largely be attributed to Todd Boehly’s bizarre ownership of the Stamford Bridge club having overseen a large squad overhaul, meaning that Potter finished with 12 wins and eighth draws in charge of Chelsea.

Potter had previously received a lot of praise for the work he did while at Brighton, having secured them a 9th place finish in 2021/22, the Seagulls' highest-ever Premier League finish at the time while playing an attractive style of football.

Interestingly, it was in Sweden where Potter first broke onto the managerial scene, having managed Ostersunds between January 2011 and June 2018, winning the Division 2 Norraland title in 2011, before emerging victorious in the 2012 Division Norra on top of earning promotion from the Superettan in 2015. He also managed to win the Swedish Cup in 2016/2017 and managed the club against Arsenal in the UEFA Europa League the following campaign.

Zinedine Zidane Odds: 20/1

Zinedine Zidane has been without a managerial role since leaving Real Madrid in May 2021 after a trophyless 2020/21 season in what was his second spell at the club as manager.

The 51-year-old has a rare trait of being both a world-class player and manager, having led Real to an unprecedented three Champions League crowns in a row between 2015 and 2018 among eight other honours during that three-year spell.

Having been the man to put Real Madrid back on top as kings of Europe, could Zidane be the man to lead Manchester United’s next era of success?

Julian Nagelsmann Odds 20/1

Julian Nagelsmann is one of the most talked about candidates to replace Erik ten Hag.

The 36-year-old is currently manager of Germany's national team, meaning that clubs may potentially have to wait until the end of Euro 2024 to get the German in place.

As far as club football goes, he was most recently in charge of German champions Bayern Munich, of which he won the Bundesliga title with in 2021/22 before his shock sacking in 2022/23. He left with a winning percentage of 71.4%, a feat only bettered by Pep Guardiola, Carlo Ancelotti and Hansi Flick at the Allianz Arena.

Nagelsmann retired as a player at 20 due to injuries, and began his managerial career at Hoffenheim in 2016. He spent three years there before moving on to RB Leipzig, who he led to a Champions League semi-final in 2019/20.

Ruben Amorim Odds: 25/1

Sporting Lisbon coach Ruben Amorim is a name that tends to be linked to a lot of high-profile managerial roles due to his impressive achievements at José Alvalade Stadium.

It was recently revealed that Amorim had held talks with West Ham United, while the Portuguese coach was heavily linked to Liverpool’s managerial vacancy once it was known that Xabi Alonso was not going to return to Anfield following the announcement of Jurgen Klopp’s departure.

During his time at Sporting, Amorim has achieved five trophies, memorably ending the club’s first Primeira Liga title in 19 years in the 2020/21 season before winning it again in 2023/24 while also winning the Supertaca Candido de Oliveira in 2021 on top of two Taca de Ligas in just over four years as manager of the club.

Between December 2019 and March 2020, Amorim managed Sporting Braga and managed to win the Taca da Liga before departing to Sporting.

Michael Carrick Odds: 25/1

Middlesbrough manager Michael Carrick may come across as an outsider for the job at United, however, he has impressed during his time at the Riverside.

The 42-year-old played for United between 2006 and 2018, winning 18 major honours and even managed the club three times following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, beating Arsenal (H) and Villarreal (A) while managing a 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, leading many to believe that he certainly has the capability to succeed at the highest levels of the game as a manager.

Carrick has been at The Boro since October 2022, overseeing 87 matches, winning 44 and drawing eight, taking the club from one that was loitering in the bottom half of the table, to a side that now plays attractive football while pushing for the play-offs. During his first season at the club, Carrick led Boro from 21st to 4th in the standings, while in 2023/24, he led the club to their first League Cup semi-final since 2004 and a eighth-place finish.
