Next Manchester United Manager Odds

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under huge pressure from the Old Trafford faithful to win a trophy this season having failed to win one since taking over the reins from Jose Mourinho in December 2019, initially on an interim basis, before being appointed as the permanent manager of the Red Devils later on that season.

Following three losses in United’s last four matches, losing 2-1 to Young Boys in the Champions League and 1-0 to both West Ham United and Aston Villa, seeing them being knocked out of the EFL Cup and lose ground on top of the table Liverpool in the league, a lot of fans were asking the questions if the Norwegian has taken the club as far as he can, as well as seeing pressure mount up on the former Molde and Cardiff City manager.

Antonio Conte Odds: 2/1

Following United’s shock 2-1 defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League, Antonio Conte’s name was aired around the press and social media a lot, with the Italian reportedly being interested in the role at Old Trafford if Solskjaer was axed from his job.

The 52-year-old is arguably the best manager available without a job, having left Inter Milan in the summer, whom he led to their first league title since 2010 last campaign, this could be an opportunity for the Red Devils to instantly challenge for silverware, which they have often lacked and craved since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013, having won just three major honours since the Scot’s retirement with an FA Cup triumph under Louis van Gaal, whilst Jose Mourinho’s tenure saw them also win the League Cup and Europa League.

Conte effectively started a nine-year dynasty in Italian football with his old club Juventus, winning three league titles and two Supercoppa Italianas as manager, signing the likes of Andrea Pirlo and current United midfielder Paul Pogba on free transfer who he could also tempt to stay at Old Trafford. The 52-year-old also won Premier League rivals, Chelsea, their last league title in the 2016/17 campaign following their 10th place finish under Guus Hiddink, following a turbulent start to the season under Jose Mourinho, further proving that the Italian could be the one to bring United an impressive trophy haul.

Mauricio Pochettino Odds: 5/1

Long time managerial target Mauricio Pochettino is also on this shortlist of managers that have been linked with the job at Old Trafford, seeing the Argentinian priced at 5/1 in United’s next manager odds.

Ed Woodward and other members of United’s hierarchy are said to have been huge admirers of the Argentinian, whilst Sir Alex Ferguson has a good relationship with the former Southampton and Tottenham coach. Pochettino is well known for playing an exciting and high tempo brand of football and helping to build squads that are capable of challenging for titles and honours, such as when he took Spurs to the Champions League final in 2019.

The 49-year-old is currently the manager of Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain of which he played for between 2001 and 2003 and has had some success there, winning the Coupe de France last season as well as the Trophee des Champions. Pochettino’s side looks highly likely to win Ligue 1 this season having won all eight matches this season, seeing them sit nine points clear of second-place Lens and having signed the likes of Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos in the summer, they are also one of the favourites to win the Champions League this season.

Pochettino is priced at 5/1 by the bookies on their lists of next United manager odds.

Brendan Rodgers Odds: 8/1

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers is also on this list of next Man United manager odds following an impressive spell with the Foxes.

The Northern Irishman managed to deliver Leicester the FA Cup for the first time in their history last season, beating the likes of United and Chelsea on their way to winning the trophy, via a wonder striker from Belgian midfielder Youri Tielemans in the final at Wembley Stadium and has substantially improved their squad and style of football since taking over from Claude Puel in the 2018/19 campaign.

Rodgers has also shown that he has the credentials to win trophies when under pressure, as he managed to win back-to-back trebles in his time at Scottish Premiership side Celtic, leading the Parkhead club to them in the 2016/17 and 2017/18 seasons.

In terms of the next Manchester United manager odds, Rodgers is priced at 8/1.

Julen Lopetegui Odds: 10/1

Former Spain and Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui is also on this list of next Manchester United manager odds, having shown his managerial credentials at Sevilla over the last two years.

Lopetegui actually managed Sevilla to their 2-1 victory over United in the Europa League semi-finals in August 2020 on his way to winning the competition with his current side having defeated Inter Milan 3-2 in the final. This is in fact Lopetegui’s only major managerial honour, despite managing Real, Porto and Spain, but, in his time at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, the 55-year-old has built a good side, which was demonstrated via their fourth-place finish last season with 77 points, just nine behind league champions Atletico Madrid.

Lopetegui is priced at 10/1 in the next United manager odds.

Laurent Blanc Odds: 12/1

Former United defender Laurent Blanc is priced at 12/1 to become the Red Devil’s next manager.

The 55-year-old Frenchman was initially linked to the role following the sacking of Jose Mourinho in December 2018 and is in the frame once again, having impressed as manager of both Bordeaux and PSG, winning 15 major honours with both, including a league title with Bordeaux in the 2008/09 season.

Blanc is currently the manager of Qatari side Al-Rayyan SC who have the likes of former FC Porto duo Yacine Brahimi and James Rodriguez on their books, although the opportunity to manage a side the size of United, who he won the Premier League title with in 2002/03 in his last season as a professional footballer would surely be too much to turn down.

Blanc is priced at 12/1 to make a return to United, but this time as a manager.
