Next PL Manager to Leave Odds 2021/22

Steve Bruce Odds: 7/1

Steve Bruce is the favourite to be the first Premier League manager to be sacked in the upcoming 2021/22 season following a turbulent couple of years at the helm of Newcastle United.

The 60-year-old was a controversial choice when he arrived in place of Rafael Benitez when the Spaniard left the post at St James’ Park at the end of the 2018/19 season, as fans of the Magpies weren’t impressed in the drop of calibre between the two managers CVs or the fact that Bruce used to manage Sunderland between 2009 and 2011.

Bruce has become a bit of a journeyman since his days at Birmingham City between the years of 2001 and 2007, as he has had six clubs since he left St Andrew’s, with his four-year spell at Hull City from June 2012 until July 2016 being his second-longest in club management, overseeing 201 matches. As it stands, Bruce has managed 11 different clubs since beginning his managerial career in July 1998.

Bruce is priced at 7/1 to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post in the 2021/22 season - click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!

Xisco Munoz Odds: 7/1

Watford manager Xisco Munoz is the bookies joint-favourite to be sacked, which doesn’t particularly come as a surprise considering the fact that the Hornets have had 16 different managers in the last 10 years and also had four different people manage them in their last season in the Premier League, in Javi Gracia, Quique Sanchez Flores, Nigel Pearson and Hayden Mullins.

As far as managers go, Munoz is relatively inexperienced having only started his managerial career back in August 2020, where he took over Georgian side Dinamo Tbilisi, winning eight of his 11 matches with them, before taking over the Hornets in December last year where oversaw his side finishing as runners-up in the Championship, having won 18 out of 27 games that he managed.

Patrick Vieira Odds: 8/1

Next up is recently appointed Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira who has recently taken over the reins at Selhurst Park following Roy Hodgson’s departure, following four years at his boyhood club.

The former Arsenal legend has had an unspectacular start to life in management, having being sacked by Nice in December last year following a run of five losses in a row in all competitions, which included being knocked out of the Europa League in the Group Stages with his side having just three points to their name, with Hapoel Be’er Sheva finishing on twice as many points in third place.

Prior to Hodgson starting up at Palace, the Eagles had a torrid time managerial wise, with 14 different managers taking charge since Neil Warnock left the club in 2010, which also includes Frank De Boer’s five-game stint in charge at the club before the former Three Lions man took over at his boyhood club.

Vieira is priced at 8/1 to be the next manager to leave his post at a Premier League club.

Rafael Benitez Odds: 9/1

New Everton manager Benitez also features in this list at 9/1 following his arrival at Goodison Park receiving mixed receptions due to his ties with city neighbours Liverpool.

The Spaniard has a decent record in England, having won the Champions League at Liverpool in 2005, the Europa League with Chelsea in 2013, as well as steadying the ship at Newcastle between March 2016 and July 2019, although he did actually get relegated with the Magpies, 1but this was largely put down to how late he took over the Geordie club.

Everton are the Spaniards 14th different club since 1995, and he will have to make a good start with the Toffees, otherwise, he’ll likely face the raff of all of the Everton fans who were uncertain about the 61-year-old’s arrival.

Since David Moyes’ departure from Everton to Manchester United at the end of the 2012/13 season, the Toffees will have had nine managers as both interim and permanent since the Scots era at Goodison Park once Benitez manages a match, with current Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman being the earliest sacking out of all of them on 23rd October 2017.

Daniel Farke Odds: 10/1

Daniel Farke managed to lead Norwich City to the Championship title last season, following an impressive campaign by the Canaries which saw them amass 97 points from 46 matches.

The German has been the manager at Carrow Road since May 2017, but, following the free pass that he was given in the 2019/20 season, where Norwich finished the campaign in 20th place with just 21 points to their name, the former Borussia Dortmund coach will be expected to achieve a much bigger points tally due to having more funds at his disposal this time around.

If Norwich are in a similar position to that which they found themselves in for much of 2019/20 season, then they will likely have a decision to make of stick or twist, of which Farke may not find himself to be so fortunate the next time around.

Mikel Arteta Odds: 10/1

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta comes into this season under huge pressure following a very poor season for the Gunners last time out which saw them finish in eighth place with no trophies or signs of progression.

The Spaniard will know that it is a matter of now or never for his managerial career at the Emirates Stadium and will be keen for the Gunners not to have a poor run of results like that they had between 28th September and Christmas Day, where the Gunners won just two league matches, otherwise Arteta knows that he will likely lose his job due to poor league positioning as he doesn’t have any European football fixtures to contend with.

Realistically, a strong top-six finish would be progression for Arsenal at this moment in time, although they will be desperate to return to Champions League football for the first time since the 2016/17 season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Odds: 10/1

Last but not least on this list is United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian has often divided opinions since returning to Old Trafford as a manager back in December 2018, following the sacking of Jose Mourinho, but he did manage their highest league finish since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.

If omens are anything to go by, the last time United finished second, Mourinho was sacked the following Christmas, but what has frustrated the fanbase of the Red Devils so much is the lack of trophies, having no won one since they won the Europa League back in the 2016/17 season, following last May’s debacle against Villarreal in Gdansk and a series of semi-finals defeats in the FA Cup to Chelsea in 2020, as well as back-to-back losses to City in the League Cup.

United are running out of excuses to become challengers for the Premier League title for the first time since 2013, meaning that if they have a poor start to the upcoming 2021/22 season, then this could bring bad news for Solskjaer about his future at the club.
