When the experienced Mauricio Pochettino took over at Chelsea in July 2023, no one expected that he would come under pressure so soon at Stamford Bridge. However, with the Blues in the bottom half of the table, the bookmakers have created a next Chelsea manager betting market. 

Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi is the current favourite to be the next Chelsea manager and, if appointed, would be the second manager from the South Coast club after Graham Potter was controversially lured to the Bridge in 2022.

The Sack Race: Betting on the Next Manager to be Sacked

Best Betting Site for Next Chelsea Manager Betting

There is a huge range of UK Bookmakers to choose from but only very few that offer next-manager betting, if at all - As we have covered every club management change over the seasons, looking for betting odds on who the next club manager will be, we have found the following betting sites to be the most reliable and quickest to get odds up for the next manager at most clubs

Who Will be The Next Chelsea manager

Let's look at some of the contenders for the hot seat at Stamford Bridge. These names are sourced from the current betting odds as well as managers who have previously been considered for the role.

Roberto De Zerbi

The 44 year old Italian is it seems is in demand with Manchester City, Liverpool and now Chelsea reported to be interested in securing the current Brighton and Hove Albion manager. His achievement in guiding the Seagulls into Europe for the first time in their history, alongside the quality of the play, made all football fans take notice

Hansi Flick

Flick has managed three German clubs ( Victoria Nammental, 1899 Hoffenheim, and Bayern Munich). His success with the Bavarian club, who during his tenure won two Bundesliga titles and the 2020 Champions League, saw him sign a three-year contract to manage the German national team in 2021. That appointment went badly (PL25, W12, D7, L6), and Flick became the first manager sacked by his country. Despite his club's success, the Chelsea owners know that after all the money spent on players and managers, the next appointment they need to get right, Flick, may be seen as a risk, having not managed outside of Germany despite the bookies liking his chances.

Zinedine Zidane

A big character is needed to rally the highly-paid stars that abound in the Chelsea dressing room. Zizou surely has the footballing pedigree to handle any dissent in the ranks. The French World Cup winner had a glittering seventeen-year playing career before moving into football management with Real Madrid. He is yet to test himself away from Los Blancos, but the bookies expect him at some time to be given a job at another of the European Powerhouses, which could be Chelsea.

With the Chelsea board needing to get the next appointment correct, could they turn to the safe (defensive) Jose Mourinho? As a manager, he would at least get their disparate squad organised. He left the Bridge under Abramovich's ownership in 2015, and if he returns to West London, it would be his third time as their manager.

Xabi Alonso

The former Liverpool, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich midfielder was the manager of Spanish League 2 side Real Sociedad (B) up until October 2022. 

He then moved back to Germany to manage Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen. 

As of early 2024 the bookmakers have installed 42-year-old Alonso at the head of the next Liverpool manager betting, however Chelsea could swoop for a manager whose star is rising.

Ruben Amorim

Amorim, born in Portugal, has been in charge of Sporting Club De Portugal since 2020. During that time, his teams won the Primeira Liga and the Taca da Liga.

Halfway through the 2023-24 season, Sporting is battling with Benfica to win the Primeira. 


Julian Nagelsmann

At just 36, Nagelsmann has already managed Hoffenheim, Leipzig and Bayern Munich. He is currently guiding the German National team, having replaced. Hansi Flick. 

Julian Naglesmann

Diego Simeone

The Atletico Madrid manager has extended his contract until 2024. He has won two La Liga titles as well as reaching the Champions League Final on two occasions. 

He broke the Barcelona/ Real Madrid stranglehold of football in Spain and his Madrid side been the only club that has regularly competed with those two giants. 

However, his defensive risk-averse tactics may not endear him to fans of many EPL clubs, although Chelsea, who thrived under Jose Mourinho, is a club that maybe could accommodate him.

Massimiliano Allegri

Now in his second spell at Juventus, the much-vaunted Allegri has only ever managed teams in Italy.  

As one of the best coaches in Europe, you would expect at some time, he would want to test his managerial prowess on foreign soil.

He has the stature and gravitas to fit perfectly at ambitious Chelsea.

Roberto Mancini

Another familiar face to the EPL is Roberto Mancini. His reputation grew after winning the European Championship in 2020 

Mancini had been In charge of the Italian national side since 2018 but quit to become the  Saudi Arabia manager.
