One of the most disappointing teams in Europe this season has been Roma, who have gone from being a top four favourite to struggling to even make it into the top six of the Serie A table.
They started the season with former Sassuolo manager Eusebio Di Francesco at the helm, dismissing him as Roma manager at the end of January after he oversaw a Champions League round of 16 exit against Porto, as well as a frankly embarrassing 7-1 defeat to Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia.
By the time we'd reached March, Claudio Ranieri returned to the club after previously managing the club eight years prior, where he was put in charge until the end of the season.
He's expected by a lot of people to be put in charge permanently when the club's officials finally make a decision at the end of the term, but with his results not showing perfection, Paddy Power have priced up next Roma manager odds to predict all possible outcomes.
Caretaker manager Claudio Ranieri favourite to become permanent Roma boss
Sealing a win at home to Empoli in his first game back at the club, Claudio Ranieri was only able to take another win after this point, taking his record to two wins and a draw from his first five games. It's difficult to judge whether he's capable of doing more in a full season in charge, but there's still time for him to prove his worth before the campaign comes to an end.
Summer departures for Alisson Becker, Radja Nainggolan and Kevin Strootman made a massive difference to their strength in goal and midfield, and it's been clear to see how different they've been, making it hard to decide whether or not they'll be able to clinch Europe for next season.
Bookmakers see Claudio Ranieri as being the best man for the job even if he doesn't make it into a appetising position in the Serie A table, pricing him at 5/4 to become permanent Roma manager on Paddy Power.
Based on the currently available managers in Italy, there isn't all that much to go by, limiting the options for those in control of who leads out Roma into future months. Eusebio Di Francesco was a promising manager at Sassuolo before he took on the job at the Stadio Olimpico and it didn't end in the best of ways, so Roma could be right in attempting to opt for experience and someone who actually understands the club.
More markets being made available in the next Roma manager odds
Ranking as second favourite, Ajax manager Erik ten Hag is priced at 4/1, followed by Antonio Conte, who has recently been linked to AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus, putting him as short as 6/1 to become next Roma manager.
Former player and Roma legend Francesco Totti is at odds of 13/2 despite only starting his coaching badges last September, and withdrawing from the course two weeks later in order to carry out his duties as a director at Roma.
A mostly frustrating first season at Chelsea puts Maurizio Sarri a 7/1, with it more likely he'll stay at Stamford Bridge if he can push his side to a win in the Europa League. Former Roma striker Vincenzo Montella follows him at 15/2 odds, which in itself feels unlikely after he underperformed in charge of AC Milan and Sevilla, currently showing brief signs of life as Fiorentina boss.
It appears that Gian Piero Gasperini could be worth a gamble at 12/1 following a clear showing of his talents in charge of Atalanta. Rafa Benitez features in most club's manager odds after clearly being unsettled at Newcastle United due to the running of the club, priced at 16/1, and it's a similar situation for Jose Mourinho, who is priced at 20/1, usually linked to every manager job on the market.
The two largest prices are given to two notable figures from the world of football that both possess a link to Roma.
Defensive midfielder Daniele De Rossi is the third player in the list that has previously played for Roma, but with the difference that De Rossi is still playing for the side and is yet to retire. He's given odds of 25/1, with Paddy Power either assuming that he'll retire at the end of the season to take on the role or retiring to become manger of the club he's always remained loyal to.
Known for once playing for and managing Roma, Fabio Capello is the largest price at odds of 33/1. England fans will remember him best for his stint in charge of the Three Lions but he's a massively experienced manager all told, spending past years in charge of AC Milan, Real Madrid, Roma, Juventus, England, Russia and Jiansu Suning
