Next Sunderland Manager Odds

Sunderland are on the lookout for a new manager following Alex Neil’s shock departure to join Stoke City at the weekend in the aftermath of Michael O’Neill’s sacking.

Neil only joined Sunderland in February and managed to win 12 and draw nine of his 24 matches in charge, helping the Black Cats to promotion back to the Championship via the play-offs.

Tony Mowbray Odds: 4/7

Tony Mowbray is another good manager without a club, following the expiration of his contract with Blackburn at the end of last season.

The 58-year-old had been manager of Rovers since February 2017 where he was given the task of helping Blackburn avoid relegation to League One from a poor position, despite improvements in form, they were relegated on the last day of the season, before bouncing back as runners-up in League One the next campaign.

This was by far Mowbray’s longest managerial spell at a team, as he took charge of 267 fixtures, winning 107 and drawing 70.

Prior to this, Mowbray had also had plenty of experience with the likes of Hibernian, West Brom, Celtic, Middlesbrough and Coventry City, notably winning the Championship in the 2007/08 campaign with the Baggies.

Mowbray is priced at 4/7 to become Sunderland's next manager - click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!

Liam Manning Odds: 3/1

MK Dons manager Liam Manning is the bookmakers' second favourite for the vacancy at Sunderland.

Last season, MK missed out on automatic promotion by just one point in Manning’s first season in charge, as well as losingout via the play-offs. During his first campaign at Stadium MK, Manning won EFL League One Manager of the Month in both September and January.

Prior to his role at MK, Manning had been West Ham’s Under 23s head coach between 2015 and 2019 before joining City Football Group, where he would take up coaching roles at New York City FC, which then lead to him being transferred over to Belgian second-tier side Lommel SK as head coach between 2020 and 2021 - Manning would lead them from bottom of the table to a third-place finish in his only season at the club.

Manning is priced at 3/1 to become Sunderland's next permanent manager after Neil.

Sean Dyche Odds: 6/1

Sean Dyche would be an appealing name for some Premier League sides, nevermind clubs in the Championship - the 50-year-old is without a job having been sacked by Burnley last season.

The former Clarets manager is a club legend at Turf Moor, having overseen 425 matches in the dugout in just under 10 years, earning the Clarets promotion to the Premier League via automatic promotion from the Championship in the 2013/14 and 2015/16 seasons.

At present, Dyche is arguably the most high-profile British manager without a job and has been known to provide stability whilst being able to work on tight budgets. This would surely make him the ideal man for the managerial vacancy at the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland are priced at 6/1 to appoint Dyche as their next manager.

Michael Carrick Odds: 12/1

Manchester United legend Michael Carrick comes in at 12/1 to become Sunderland’s next manager following his departure from Old Trafford last season following a Caretaker Manager spell.

The 41-year-old showed his potential during his three games in charge of United last season, as he oversaw a 1-1 draw away at Chelsea, as well as impressive 2-0 and 3-2 victories over Villarreal and Arsenal prior to leaving.

As shown by former colleagues' progress at Salford City and Ipswich Town who are led by former Red Devils coaches, Neil Wood and Kieran McKenna, United have clearly had some very talented potential managers on their books. After all, Carrick was initially appointed as a coach by Jose Mourinho.

Carrick is priced at 12/1 to take over the reins at the Stadium of Light.

Roy Keane Odds: 25/1

Roy Keane is a name that gets linked a lot with Sunderland having managed to earn them promotion to the Premier League in his first season in charge, back in 2006/07.

The Irishman has frequently stated that he would like a job in football management once again, as well as feeling that it was a mistake to leave the Black Cats.

Fans of the Wearside club would likely give the 51-year-old a heroes welcome and it would certainly be interesting to see if his style of management would translate to the modern game.

His most recent role came as assistant manager of the Republic of Ireland between 2013 and 2018, as well as taking up the same role in a short spell with Nottingham Forest in 2019.

Keane is priced at 25/1 for a sensational return to Sunderland.
