Next Wigan Manager Odds

Wigan Athletic are on the lookout for a new manager following Kolo Toure’s calamitous spell in charge of the Latics, seeing them fail to win any of their nine matches under the Ivorian, while sitting bottom of the Championship with 25 points from 28 matches.

The 41-year-old had just two months in charge of the club, having taken over from popular manager Leam Richardson who not only stabilised the club during their financial troubles in 2020/21 by keeping them in League One, but, oversaw their promotion to the Championship as winners of the third-tier last campaign.

Athletic are now on a search for their third manager of the season, as they bid to avoid relegation back to League One.

Shaun Maloney Odds: 1/10

Former Latics midfielder Shaun Maloney looks destined to make a return to the DW Stadium, which could be a popular move with the fans having played a large role in their incredible FA Cup triumph back in 2013.

The 40-year-old has had previous experiences with Belgium and Hibernian, having previously been ex-Wigan coach, Roberto Martinez’s assistant manager with the Red Devils between 2018 and 2021, while also managing former club Hibernian for just 19 matches from December 2021 to April 2022, winning six and drawing six before his dismissal after a Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to fierce rivals Hearts.

Maloney is priced at 1/10 to become Wigan’s next permanent manager following Toure’s dismissal - click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!

Chris Wilder Odds: 8/1

Chris Wilder has been linked with many Championship jobs since being sacked by Middlesbrough earlier on in the season, mainly due to his impressive CV.

The 55-year-old won 18 of his 45 matches in charge at the Riverside Stadium with his record being significantly worsened following a run of two wins in his last 11 matches which left Boro in the relegation zone. However, despite this setback, Wilder will be fondly remembered for times at other clubs he has managed.

Notably, Wilder took Sheffield United to the Premier League via finishing as runner-up in the Championship during the 2018/19 season, this was after winning League One with the Blades in 2016/17. On top of this, he has also managed promotions with the likes of Alfreton Town, Oxford United and Northampton Town.

Wilder is priced at 8/1 to become Wigan’s next manager.

Anthony Barry Odds: 16/1

36-year-old English coach, Anthony Barry has had his name circulate around a lot of managerial jobs of late and it is easy to see why.

The Liverpudlian has been a first-team coach at Chelsea since 2020, as well as recently taking up the same role with the Belgium national side. Notably, when Chelsea won the Champions League back in 2021, he was actually assistant manager to Thomas Tuchel.

With such valuable experience in some of the most high-pressure environments, could it be time for Barry to step up and become a manager?

Barry is priced at 16/1 to become the Latics' next manager.

Dean Smith Odds: 16/1

Having been sacked by Norwich City on 27th December, Dean Smith is currently on the search for his next managerial position.

The 51-year-old left Carrow Road after winning just 16 games from 56, equating to a win percentage of 28.57%, but, can take pride in work done at previous clubs, having earned promotion with his boyhood club Aston Villa during the 2018/19 season via the play-offs, before managing them to the League Cup final the following campaign.

Prior to this, Smith was manager of Brentford, where he layed a lot of the groundwork that has seen Thomas Frank have a successful reign, having created an entertaining side on a small budget while selling some key players for larger fees such as James Tarkowski, while acquiring key men such as Neal Maupay and Ollie Watkins.

Wigan are priced at 16/1 to appoint Smith as their next manager.
