Next West Ham Manager Odds

With David Moyes under increasing pressure following West Ham United’s loss to relegation rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend, here we take a look at the next manager odds of the Hammers.

The 59-year-old has been West Ham’s permanent manager since December 2019, having also had a spell at the club between November 2017 and May 2018. Since the start of his most recent appointment, the ex-Manchester United manager has won 67 and drawn 28 of his 150 matches in charge, seeing him have a 44.67% win percentage.

Prior to the Hammers' struggles during the 2022/23 campaign, Moyes had done a superb job at the London Stadium, leading the club to the Europa League semi-finals last season, as well as to the knockout stages of the Europa Conference League in the current campaign.

Rafael Benitez Odds: 5/6

Former Everton coach Rafael Benitez is the favourite to replace Moyes as West Ham United’s next manager.

Benitez has had 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’s time at Everton was always going to be a difficult one, having never been accepted by fans of the Toffees, prior to the results going sour. At a more capable team in West Ham, the Spaniard could potentially be a good fit.

Sean Dyche Odds: 7/2

Could West Ham make an approach for Sean Dyche? Surprisingly, the ex-Burnley manager has been without a job since leaving Turf Moor in April 2022.

Having tried and tested the likes of ex-Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini prior to Moyes joining the club, could West Ham look for the safe option in appointing a British manager that knows the league inside out?

Arguably, Dyche’s most impressive managerial achievement was when he managed to lead Burnley to the Europa League qualifying stages following a seventh-place finish in the 2017/18 Premier League season. Showing that he has what it takes to take them back to where they aim to be, having done so on a smaller budget.

On top of this, during his nine years at Turf Moor, Dyche provided the Clarets with a stable platform, 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.

Dyche is priced at 7/2 to become the next manager at the London Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino Odds: 12/1

Having previously managed one of West Ham’s most fierce rivals in Tottenham Hotspur, it would be a surprise to see Mauricio Pochettino make the move to the London Stadium, however, having missed out on a series of big roles, could the Argentinian be tempted by the job itself?

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.

With the Hammers having a series of talented players among their ranks, such as Declan Rice, Gianluca Scamacca and more, there is a good chance that Pochettino could replicate the job he did at Southampton which initially rose him to managerial fame.

Pochettino is priced at 12/1 to make a shock move to the Hammers.

Nuno Espirito Santo Odds: 12/1

Ex-Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo is also in contention for the role at West Ham should Moyes be sacked.

The Portuguese coach's last role in England was at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where he was perhaps on the back foot from the start, with the Lilywhites expecting a world-class manager who was capable of coaching attractive football having previously had Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho at the helm.

Santo’s time at Spurs finished after just 17 matches, winning eight times. But, perhaps the Portuguese manager will be valued and rated more on his time at Molineux with Wolves where he earned promotion from the Championship in the 2017/18 season, before guiding them to a seventh-place finish in their first Premier League campaign back, qualifying them for the Europa League.

At present, the 48-year-old currently manages Saudi Arabian side Al-Ittihad where he has seen his side win nine and drawn five of his 15 games in charge, as they sit top of the Saudi Pro League. Typically of his style, they have conceded just seven times, while scoring 23.

West Ham are priced at 12/1 to appoint Nuno as their next manager.

Ange Postecoglou Odds: 14/1

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has been linked with the job at West Ham, as the Australian continues to impress at Parkhead.

The 57-year-old coach has been a revelation having managed to win the Scottish Premiership and Scottish League Cup in his first season in charge and currently sees his side lie nine points clear of Rangers after 22 matches this time around.

What would be promising for his chances too is his track record of developing players, such as Kyogo Furuhashi at Celtic and many more. While showing that he has good knowledge of players in obscure leagues - something West Ham have been good at in recent times, when signing the likes of Vladimir Coufal and Tomas Soucek.

Prior to his current role, he had several jobs having been manager at youth levels for the Australian national team, before becoming their manager between 2013 and 2017. He also managed to win the A-League Championship twice and Premiership once with Brisbane Roar between 2010 and 2012, as well as the J-League with Yokohoma Marinos in 2019.

The Hammers are priced at 14/1 to appoint Celtic coach Postecoglou as their next manager.
