Next Manchester United Manager Odds: Mauricio Pochettino Odds: 7/4
Long time managerial target Mauricio Pochettino is the bookmaker's favourite to become United's next permanent manager at 7/4.
Ed Woodward and other members of United’s hierarchy are said to have been huge admirers of the Argentinian, whilst Sir Alex Ferguson has a good relationship with the former Southampton and Tottenham coach. Pochettino is well known for playing an exciting and high tempo brand of football and helping to build squads that are capable of challenging for titles and honours, such as when he took Spurs to the Champions League final in 2019.
The 49-year-old is currently the manager of Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain of which he played for between 2001 and 2003 and has had some success there, winning the Coupe de France last season as well as the Trophee des Champions. Pochettino’s side looks highly likely to win Ligue 1 this season and are one of the favourites to win the Champions League following their sensational summer transfer window.
According to the likes of the Daily Mail, there has been reports that the Argentinian would consider leaving PSG now to become United's next manager.
Brendan Rodgers Odds: 9/2
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers is one of the main candidates for the vacant role at Manchester United manager having impressed at the King Power Stadium.
The Northern Irishman managed to deliver Leicester the FA Cup for the first time in their history last season, beating the likes of United and Chelsea on their way to winning the trophy, via a wonder striker from Belgian midfielder Youri Tielemans in the final at Wembley Stadium and has substantially improved their squad and style of football since taking over from Claude Puel in the 2018/19 campaign.
Rodgers has also shown that he has the credentials to win trophies when under pressure, as he managed to win back-to-back trebles in his time at Scottish Premiership side Celtic, leading the Parkhead club to them in the 2016/17 and 2017/18 seasons.
With rumours circulating that United would prefer their next manager to be British and to have a good understanding of the Premier League, Rodgers is the most likely candidate as he is perhaps the highest-profile active manager that fits the bill.
Michael Carrick Odds: 5/1
Legendary midfielder and current Interim United coach Michael Carrick is also on the shortlist for the job at Old Trafford, what must be noted is that the 40-year-old has to manage 10 matches to be regarded as permanent manager with the bookmakers.
Carrick who played 463 times for the Red Devils as a player winning every available trophy was previously on Jose Mourinho's coaching staff, before being retained by Solskjaer and is now Interim Manager following a club announcement that he will be that until a more high profile Interim Manager is available, although there has been suggestions that the Old Trafford club are without a direct plan and the Wallsend-born coach could stay on until the end of the season if results are good enough.
Zinedine Zidane Odds: 8/1
Former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is the next manager to feature on this list.
The 49-year-old Frenchman has not had a job since leaving Los Blancos at the end of last season where his side finished trophyless having lost out on the league title to city rivals Atletico Madrid on the last day despite a very injury-hit season for his club.
In Zidane’s first spell at Real as a manager, he delivered unprecedented success, winning them three Champions League titles in a row between 2016 and 2018, becoming the first manager to retain the competition, before being the first to won in three times in row. In Zidane’s two spells as manager, he lead Real to two La Liga titles in 2017 and 2020 and left the club on his own terms with huge respect from the Real fanbase.
The Frenchman could be a good fit for United as manager, as ultimately he has handled big expectations from a demanding fan base at Real, as well as the egos of those who play for the club. The Marseille-born manager has also previously managed the likes of Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo and would likely know how to get the best out of them once again.
Erik Ten Hag Odds: 10/1
Ajax manager Erik ten Hag comes in as the next manager to feature on this list of those considered for the job at Old Trafford.
The Dutch manager is deemed to be the ideal candidate due to his record at Ajax that has seen him win two Eredivisie titles, as well as two KNVB cups whilst see his side playing an attractive brand of football that also promotes the youth system.
These philosophies saw ten Hag coach his side to a Champions League semi-final with Ajax in 2019, a stage of the competition that United haven’t reached since they were beaten finalists in the 2010/11 season.
Ralf Ragnick Odds: 12/1
The final coach on this list is the much-discussed name of Ralf Ragnick.
The 63-year-old is currently a Head of Sports and Development at Lokomotiv Moscow having spent several years at Red Bull where he helped to lead their expansion into European football. As a result of Ragnick’s direction, Red Bull’s footballing assets rose to $1.2bn in the footballing world from $120m and he even managed RB Leipzig between 2015/16 and 2018/19, managing a total of 60 wins in 88 games, using the ‘Gegenpressing’ system which he shaped, inspiring the likes of Thomas Tuchel, Julian Nagelsmann and Jurgen Klopp.
In other spells in management, Ragnick won Bundesliga 2 with Hannover 96 in the 2001/02 season, as well as finishing as runner-up with Schalke in the Bundesliga back in 2005, as well as in the DFB Pokal that year, however, he did win the DFL Super Cup in 2011 against Borussia Dortmund, as well as the DFL-Liga Pokal in 2005 with the Gelsenkirchen club. Ragnick was also managed when Hoffenheim climbed from the Regionalliga Sud in the 2006/07 season to the Bundesliga in 2008/09.
Undoubtedly, Ragnick would bring high tempo football to Old Trafford which is something that the fans crave and the German has a good track record of getting his desired results.
Steve Bruce Odds: 14/1
Another former United legend in Steve Bruce has reportedly put his hat in the ring to become United's Interim Manager until the end of the season.
Bruce, who lifted United's first league title in 26 years when they won the Premier League title in the 1992/93 season has recently left Newcastle United via mutual consent following their takeover by the Saudi Arabia Public Investment fund had done a decent job at the Magpies, consolidating their top-flight status in each of his first two seasons at St James' Park.
The 60-year-old made Birmingham City into a solid Premier League club, whilst also managing the likes of Sunderland and Hull City in the top-flight and is priced at 14/1 to manage United at least 10 times this season.
Laurent Blanc Odds: 16/1
The final manager who has been linked with the job on an Interim basis is another former United defender Laurent Blanc.
The 1998 World Cup winner was a United player between 2001 and 2003 before retiring as a player having won the Premier League title in 2002/03. The 56-year-old has a decent managerial CV, having won a league and cup double with Bordeaux in the 2008/09 season as well as the Trophee des Champions and even managed three league titles, two Coupe de France's and three Coupe de la Ligue's in three seasons, managing a 73% win percentage.
