Next Manchester United Manager Betting: The big result of the Premier League weekend was Liverpool’s dominant 5-0 win at Old Trafford against Manchester United.

That was the headline grabber and it heaped even more pressure on Ole Gunnar Solksjaer.

The United boss is the current favourite to be the Next Premier League Manager To Go.

With only three wins by United in their last eight games and with them being well adrift in the early Premier League title race, is Solksjear’s time at Old Trafford almost up?

If so, that brings the bigger question of who United will turn to in order to replace him?

With that in mind, we look at the current Next Manchester United Manager Betting Odds.

Zidane is the favorite to take over at Old Trafford

The current Real Madrid manager is the current 3/1 favourite in Next Manchester United manager odds* (odds recorded at 20:57 GMT on October 24th at Betfair).

This is a tricky time for United to be looking for a new manager if they decide to give Solskjaer the shove.

There really aren’t the top names around that they could go and get. Most are locked down already.

With the likes of Mauricio Pochettino and Brendan Rodgers saying they are happy where they are, would Zidane answer any Old Trafford call?

Zidane is a proven winner at the club level.

But he doesn’t really fit things together in terms of being a manager to nurture young talent.

His presence at Old Trafford would give them a chance to rally things together. However, it doesn’t ideally look like a move for the future.

Zinedine Zidane is a 3/1 quote to be the next Manchester United manager* (odds recorded at 20:57 GMT on October 24th at Betfair).

Could United get Rodgers?

Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers seems happy with his lot at Leicester.

He saw the Foxes tear United apart in a 4-2 league win over them recently.

Even though Leicester haven’t quite been at their best this season, there have been better signs from them recently with back to back league wins.

Out of the list of main contenders on the Next Manchester United manager betting list, Rodgers fits the bill the best.

He would probably give the likes of Donny van de Beek, Mason Greenwood and Jadon Sancho the guidance that they need.

Getting him out of the King Power may not be easy despite Rodgers being at 4/1* (odds recorded at 20:57 GMT on October 24th at Betfair).

Antonio Conte is available

When Antonio Conte arrived in England to take over at Chelsea, some early-season tactical adjustments won him high praise. He went on to guide the Blues to the title.

Conte is currently available after parting with Inter in the summer. That was after winning the Serie A title.

His availability could easily be the deciding factor in all of this.

That’s league titles Conte has delivered at his last three club managerial positions (Juventus, Chelsea and Inter).

Conte looked likely to go to Spurs in the summer but that fell through.

Could Manchester United benefit from that?

Conte looks like the genuine biggest contender to succeed Solskjaer at 5/1* (odds recorded at 20:57 GMT on October 24th at Betfair).

Conte’s big managerial career goal is the Champions League. That’s the major title that is missing from his impressive list of managerial honours at the club level.

Mauricio Pochettino likely to stay in Paris

This one is looking more and more unlikely really. Pochettino is not likely to be too quick to get out of Paris.

PSG are not going to be keen to let him go either. T

he Argentine is overseeing one of the Champions League front runners and are running away with things on the domestic front as well.

He’s not likely going anywhere at the moment.

Erik ten Hag a lively outsider?

This is an interesting one if we think about the young talent that is there at Old Trafford.

Ajax boss Erik ten Hag would fit the bill nicely.

He has won a couple of domestic league titles with Ajax and guided them to the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League in 2019.

Ten Hag is respected and while obviously untried at such a big level at Manchester United, the current United squad could possibly benefit from his arrival.

Erik ten Hag signed a contract extension earlier this year however keeping him at Ajax until the end of the 2022-23 season.

But were he to go to Old Trafford, the immediate pressure of winning wouldn’t be on him as much as say a Zidane or a Conte.
