Next England Manager Betting


Hailed as the one to finally lead England back to international glory not so long ago, the temperature is now beginning to rise for Gareth Southgate in the England hot seat. A 1-0 defeat on the road at Hungary was disappointing but still in the realms of acceptable. A 4-0 humiliation to the Magyars on home soil was anything but. Pedestrian, lacking invention, susceptible at the back and now without a goal in six hours of international football, all is not well in the England camp.

Having steered his side so successfully through World Cup qualifying, it seems pretty safe to assume that Southgate will be the man in the dugout out in Qatar, but with the vultures beginning to circle, a poor performance there may spell the end.

There is at least enough uncertainty surrounding his position for the market makers to have released odds on who the next man in charge may be, with BetVictor deeming the following five as the most likely to take the reins.

Mauricio Pochettino – 6/1

As a highly regarded manager who – if reports are to be believed – may soon be out of work, it is no surprise to see current PSG boss Pochettino towards the head of the betting. And despite a seemingly costly failure to deliver Champion’s League glory to the Parisienne side, the Argentinian’s overall body of work is pretty impressive.

A studious tactician, with a preference for the high-pressing style so prevalent in the modern game, he would likely be a popular choice.

Rescuing Espanyol from impending relegation in his first assignment, he then led Southampton to their highest points tally since the Premier League began, before a near seven-year spell at Tottenham Hotspur which also saw Spurs record their highest ever Premier League points tally in 2016/17. A stint at PSG yielded the first trophies of his managerial career in the Ligue 1 title, Coupe de France and Trophée des Champions. A studious tactician, with a preference for the high-pressing style so prevalent in the modern game, he would likely be a popular choice.

Graham Potter – 6/1

Solid but unremarkable doing an eleven-club playing career, Potter’s reputation as a manager is already far exceeding anything he achieved on the pitch. Cutting his managerial teeth at Swedish minnows Östersund, Potter’s eye for a player and shrewd tactical brain led the small Scandinavian club to three promotions and the lofty heights of European competition.

With that kind of record, it wasn’t long until the British clubs came calling, with Potter heading down to the South Coast following a short stay at Swansea City. Lauded for his sides ability to keep position and maintain their shape, he heads into the summer having steered the Seagulls to a ninth placed finish and their highest ever Premier League points tally. Having worked with only limited budgets throughout his career, it would certainly be interesting to see what Potter could do with the pick of the best English talent at his disposal.

Eddie Howe – 6/1

Thrust into the managerial hotseat as a 31-year-old at Bournemouth, Eddie Howe proved to be an inspired appointment. On the brink of relegation from League 2 at the time he took charge, Howe avoided that fate and went on to guide the Cherries to the dizzy heights of the Premier League. A fantastic achievement, and one which saw Eddie crowned the Football League manager of the decade in 2015.

the speed with which he managed to turn the Northeast club around was seriously impressive

Now of course chosen as the man to lead Newcastle United into a new era, Howe has made an excellent start. Odds on for relegation at the time of his appointment, Howe inspired the Magpies to a comfortable 11th placed finish. A real student of the game, the speed with which he managed to turn the Northeast club around was seriously impressive - even accounting for the January transfer spend. The question is, will he want to leave Newcastle now on the brink of what may be one of the most exciting spells in the club’s history?

Steven Gerrard – 6/1

With 114 England caps to his name, Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard was comfortably the best of the names on this list as a player. He is however also by some distance the least experienced in the managerial hotseat, having only taken his first job at Rangers as recently as 2018.

Gerrard’s time at Ibrox was a successful one though, leading the club to the Scottish Premiership title before departing for pastures new when joining Aston Villa. A fourteenth placed finish was a solid if unspectacular start to life at Villa Park, and many will rightly question whether he was the experience or managerial record to deserve a shot at the top job so soon. Having also invested heavily in the Villa squad already this summer, it seems likely he will be remaining in the West Midlands for a little longer at least.

Sean Dyche – 6/1

And last but not least, former Burnley boss Sean Dyche. The gravelly voiced Kettering native may not be associated with the type of free-flowing attacking football that many England fans crave, but he is at least available, with his ten-year Turf Moor tenure having recently come to an end.

Whatever the cynics may say about Dyche, it is hard to argue with the effectiveness of his direct and organised brand of football. Guiding Burnley to the Premier League, first in 2012/13, and then again in 2015/16, it is for this second spell in the top flight that Dyche earned most of his managerial plaudits. Consistently creating a side which seemed greater than the sum of its parts, the standout achievement of his reign came with a 7th placed finish in 2017/18 – a result which saw Burnley qualify for Europe for the first time in over 50 years. Maintaining Burnley’s Premier League status for five successive seasons, it was only following his controversial sacking in 2022 that the Clarets were relegated. Having previously been part of the England Under-21 set-up, it wouldn’t be the biggest shock were he to be given a shot.
