Next Watford Manager After Nigel Pearson Odds

Chris Hughton

Claude Puel Watford odds

Former Southampton and Leicester manager Claude Puel has emerged as a frontrunner for the Watford job. The Frenchman has found success in his homeland with Saint Etienne, leading them to their first French Cup Final in 38 years after an ill-fated tenure with the Foxes.

Before his disappointing reign in Leicester, Puel found success with Southampton, earning an eighth-place finish in the Premier League but drew critics thanks to his defensive style.

However, this Premier League pedigree – as well as his European credentials – make Puel an attractive candidate. His defensive football will also be desired in Watford given their leaky, woeful defence in 2019-20.

The fairly experienced Premier League manager is the favourite to take the helm at 21/10.

Chris Hughton Watford odds

Is Chris Hughton ready to return to top-flight football? Most people will agree that he should never have left Brighton & Hove Albion, as he comfortably kept them above the relegation zone for two seasons.

The English manager, who possesses a wealth of experience managing in both the Premier League and the Championship, has been out of work since leaving the Seagulls at the end of last season and there doesn't seem to be an array of offers for him right now.

Hughton is a bit of a risk, but could find success if given some backing during the summer. If Watford are relegated, Hughton would be an attractive option given his impressive record in the Championship – he has led both Brighton and Newcastle United to the Premier League, whilst also coming close with Birmingham City.

The ex-Magpies boss is 4/1 to join Watford.

Sam Allardyce

A team is in a relegation scrap, so that usually means one thing: Sam Allardyce.

The exceptionally experienced manager has had a very bizarre few years in management, as he was drafted in by Sunderland, Crystal Palace and Everton for just one season to help avoid the drop. In the midst of all this as well, Allardyce was England manager for just one game.

It goes without saying the former West Ham United boss would be the ideal manager for Watford in a survival battle, given that he has famously never been relegated out of the Premier League across his stellar career.

For the future, clubs don't seem struck on building with Allardyce, as he has had five jobs in five years and was let go in all of them, despite helping keep them up.

The 65-year-old also stated a few years back how he would not manage in club football again, however, Watford might need him - he is 5/1 to take the vacant manager role.

Zlatko Dalic Watford odds

An intriguing name that has been mentioned, but it appears unlikely. Dalic led Croatia to the final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup where they were beaten 4-2 by champions France, but the manager left Russia with an enhanced reputation after dwarfing all expectations.

The 53-year-old would be highly desired by Watford’s egotistical management due to his expansive playstyle but would be difficult to pull off – Dalic recently signed a new two-year deal with his native country.

The Croatia manager is now 6/1 to join Watford, but it remains highly unlikely.

Joao Pedro Sousa

Behind the obvious candidates and heavyweights like Allardyce, Hughton and Dalic sits Joao Pedro Sousa, the current manager of Primeira Liga side Famalicao.

Sousa has been working his way up as an assistant manager in his homeland and over in England, joining fellow Portuguese manager Marco Silva at Hull City, Watford and Everton, before taking his own path with Famalicao.

Having been the assistant for Silva at six different clubs, including Olympiacos, the 48-year-old has become relatively experienced in English football and on the European scale. At Famalicao, Sousa has had a brilliant campaign, leading the club into fifth, with a Europa League fight still on the cards towards the end of the season.

Perhaps similarly to Nuno Espirito Santo of Wolves, this would be a long term agreement with his managerial expertise in two different countries at a young age. However, it's always a risk to step up into such a big role, from such a smaller league.

Sousa is now priced at 7/1 to rejoin Watford, but this time, as their head coach.

Danny Cowley Watford odds

Another head-scratching choice is Danny Cowley, who has only just been sacked as Huddersfield Town manager this month, after a dismal few months with the Terriers.

However, it is not as black-and-white as it sounds: Cowley took over when the club had just one point from the opening nine games of the season, so keeping Huddersfield out of the drop zone was a remarkable result.

Cowley would not be the European name the Watford bosses traditionally pursue, but he could find success at Vicarage Road and he is 17/2 to take the vacant job.
