Next England Manager Betting Odds

There are instances when these odds might not be readily available for certain clubs. This could be because the position has only recently been filled, the club is currently performing exceptionally well, or the club has a strong history of standing by its manager through thick and thin.

England Manager Candidates

Mauricio Pochettino

The Argentinian's career has now spanned five clubs since he first took charge of Spanish club Espanyol in 2009. Southampton, Tottenham, PSG and currently, Chelsea have all been managed by Poch. His appointment at Stamford Bridge in July 2023 has dampened the noise of those who called for him to replace Southgate, and his betting odds to be appointed as the next England manager have considerably lengthened.  

Graham Potter

Another of the "new breed" of managers noted for their football intelligence and tactical nous. Potter started his managerial life at Ostersund in Sweden. From there, he further built his reputation at Swansea and  Brighton before landing at Stamford Bridge in September 2022 under new Blues owner Todd Boehly. Expectations were high for Potter and the management team he had brought from Brighton, but results started badly and never got any better. (PL31 W12 D8 L11). In April 2023, he left Stamford Bridge. Had he flourished in West London, then the  England job may have been a shoo-in, but there were rumblings that he could not manage the dressing room of the " multiple highly paid Chelsea stars", which could be a consideration if he is interviewed for the top job in English football.

Eddie Howe

Another front-runner for the England manager position is Eddie Howe. The former Bournemouth and  Burnley boss is now managing a Newcastle United majority owned by the Sovereign Wealth Fund of Saudi Arabia. Their riches have allowed Howe to shop for the best players in the world, and a fourth-place EPL finish in 2023 is a testament to this. However, the pressure rises with that investment, and Howe's team would be expected to bring some silverware to St James Park. If he can bring the first trophy back to St James Park since 2006, then his England chances may well be enhanced.

Sean Dyche

The current Everton manager is renowned for his organised and pragmatic teams. At Burnley, he showed his football management prowess by keeping the cash-poor Clarets in the EPL season after season. Many football purists baulked at Sam Allardyce when he was appointed England manager, and we could see the same reaction were Sean Dyche to be selected. However, he has been towards the head of the next England betting, so the bookies like him, and if the FA decision-makers who appointed Allardyce are still in place, then it would not be a massive shock if the gruff-voiced Dyche was appointed.

Lee Carsley

It would be a shock were Lee Carsley, who has never managed a top-flight club, to be appointed England manager. His name has been quoted in the betting after he guided the England Under 21 side to European Championship glory in 2023. In the Autumn of that year, there were newspaper reports that the FAI were considering Carsley to replace Stephen Kenny, whose time as Republic Of Ireland manager looked to be coming to an end. 

Steven Gerrard

The former Liverpool and England midfielder has managed three clubs since hanging up his boots. Glasgow Rangers, Aston Villa and his latest position in Saudi Arabian managing Al-Ettifaq. He is expected to be offered a job back in England at some time, with Liverpool seemingly in pole position when Jurgen Klopp moves on. He may be offered a position somewhere in the England setup, such was his contribution to the England cause in his playing days, but he is currently not one of the front runners to be appointed the next manager.

Brendan Rodgers

Has managed clubs in England, Scotland, and Wales and played for a team in Northern Ireland.

Currently back in Scotland, where he is again managing Celtic.

Frank Lampard

In a similar position to his England midfield colleague Steven Gerrard, his managerial standing has been knocked by poor results and being let go by clubs. Lampard has been in charge of Chelsea, Derby County, and Everton, but none of those jobs have lasted longer than eighteen months.

Pep Guardiola

As one of the most successful club managers of all time, it would be tough for the FA to turn him down if he applied. He knows the pressure of the England position, but having managed some of the biggest clubs in Europe, he has the tactical knowledge and experience to bring something unique to how England play the beautiful game.

Steve Cooper 

 The underestimated Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper started his club management career with Swansea. He guided the Championship club to back-to-back playoffs, just falling short in both. He is familiar with the England setup, having managed the national sides at under 16 and 17 levels. 

Sarina Wiegman

The England Women's National team manager has not put a foot wrong either in team selection or in how she handles the media. We suspect there will be many advocates for the Dutch-born Wiegman to get the role alongside those who would be vehemently against it.

Scott Parker

Parker proved himself on the South Coast with Bournemouth promoted to the EPL. 

However, he was sacked after the 9-0 defeat by Liverpool, not so much because of the defeat but more so because of the comments he made about the club in post-match interviews.

Steven Gerrard will need to bounce back after his dismissal from Aston Villa in 2022.

England Flag

The shortest tenure for a permanent England manager was that of Big Sam Allardyce who only managed the team for 1 game before being dismissed.

Steve Mclaren the "wally with the brolly" lasted just 18 games before  Fabio Capello was appointed. 

Capello is the most successful England manager when it comes to a winning percentage of England games. 

The Italian had a record of 28 wins from 42 games (67%). 

The worst-performing manager was Kevin Keegan who only managed 7 wins from 18 games (39%).
