Who Will Be The Next Cardiff City Manager

Whoever it might be, they will be hoping for a longer tenure than a host of their predecessors, but success on the field determines length of service, something arguably lacking in recent years at the Cardiff City Stadium

Nathan Jones

Nathan Jones was fancied to manage the club he supported as a boy when Sabri Lamouchi was let go in May 2023. The former Luton, Stoke and Southampton manager may have missed out this time around but it would surprise no one if at some time in his football management career he is appointed at Cardiff City.

The Northern Irishman is never far away from most next manager lists and has been in the bookmakers betting market for the Cardiff job previously. His managerial record was excellent in Scotland when at Celtic and Hibernian, but not so good at Bolton Wanderers in England  and Omonia in Cyprus. 

Steve Morison

It was strange that Morison was heavily backed in the spring of 2023 to return to Cardiff City stadium. It was said that he had plenty of support from within the club and had not been given long enough to get his ideas across when he was in charge between 2021 and 2022.  

Kevin Philips 

The ex striker has moved slowly into football management after hanging up his boots. He has coached at Leicester City, Derby and Stoke City before being appointed at Northern Premier League side South Shields in 2022. After winning promotion to the National League North in 2023 he left the club by mutual consent.



How to Place A Bet On The Next Cardiff City Manager

To place a bet on the next Cardiff City manager you will need to find a bookmaker that is offering odds on the market.

Finding 'next manager odds' for any club is always more likely when the position is vacant, and a little harder when the position is filled unless considering one of the very top clubs.

  1. Find the best football betting site offering odds for the manager you think will be appointed at Cardiff City. 
  2. Make that selection and add them to your bet slip.
  3. Select the stake you wish to wager.
  4. Confirm, you can check your bet at any time in the history section of your bookmaker account.
  5. If you make the right selection, you win. If your prediction is incorrect, you will lose the stake you have wagered, just as with any normal bet.

I'm not going to Cardiff and I haven't been approached by Cardiff to even have a conversation with them". Despite adding that he is "not going down to Wales and I'm staying here in the north-west" Allardyce is 3/1 with BetVictor to become the next Cardiff manager.
