He became the twenty-third permanent boss of the Red Devils.

The Sack Race blog will provide further clues as to which marquee managers are available.

Who Will Be The Next Manchester United Manager

Let's take a look at a few possible contenders to be the next Manchester United manager. The following names have featured in previous next Man Utd manager betting markets and are at a high enough level to be considered for such a prestigious position. 

Gareth Southgate

It seems likely that Gareth Southgate, who has been with England since 2016, will be appointed to an EPL job when his time with the national team ends. He has no connection to the Red Devils although has worked with incoming sporting director Dan Ashworth. The current England boss said " he would not speak to any clubs" prior to Euro 2024. 


Zinedine Zidane

At the time of writing, Zidane is clubless after leaving Real Madrid for the second time in 2021. Whilst at Real Madrid, he won two La Liga titles and three Champions League trophies. Speculation was that he is being lined up to take over from Didier Deschamps at the French National side after the 2022 World Cup. However, depending on his next job, the bookies can see him at Old Trafford at some time in the future. 

Julian Nagelsmann

The former TSG Hoffenheim, RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich boss was appointed the German national team manager in September 2023.

Jose Mourinho

The special one features towards the head of the next Manchester United manager betting market despite having only left the position in 2018. Whilst at Old Trafford Mourinho won the EFL Cup and the Europa League but we suspect many fans would see a return for Mourinho as a backward step. . 

Graham Potter

Solihull-born Graham Potter had a career that was only heading upwards before he took the position as Chelsea manager in September 2022. His time at Stamford Bridge was unsuccessful, and he was sacked in April of the following year. A coach of his quality will undoubtedly be in demand but whether it will be another of the "big six" is open to question. 

Roberto De Zerbi

With so many admirers of Italian-born Roberto De Zerbi's style of football, he is regularly named in the betting for the biggest jobs in European football. Jobs do not come much bigger than the one at Old Trafford. 

Unai Emery

Image: skysports

The Spaniard has improved Aston Villa, with all his players knowing their roles and executing his instructions flawlessly. He has won trophies at PSG, Sevilla and Villareal, and that will surely be his next target with the West Midlands club. His only blip came at Arsenal, where he immediately followed Arsene Wenger, a task that would be beyond most managers. 

Thomas Frank

Image: JustArsenal

Another EPL manager whose time may have come to take the next step in his blossoming career. Danish born Frank has been Brentford boss since 2018 and guided the Bees into the EPL 2021. 

Michael Carrick

The former United player and caretaker manager has impressed in his first permanent managerial job at Championship side Middlesbrough. He guided Boro to the playoffs, moving the club up the table from 21st position playing expansive but controlled football. Because they missed out on promotion, we can surmise that EPL clubs and the bookies odds compilers will have Carrick on their minds for future top-tier vacancies.

Manchester United went into their game against Liverpool last weekend with a hint of optimism. They were underdogs, both with bookies and fans alike, but these games between rivals often throw form out of the window and go down to how the teams play of the day.

FAQ

Manchester United Next Manager Betting FAQs

  • Who is the favourite to be the next Manchester United Manager

    The favourite to be the next Manchester United manager was Mauricio Pochettino, but the bookmakers have withdrawn the odds with Ten Hag currently looking secure at Old Trafford. 

     

  • Who is the longest-serving manager at Manchester United

    Sir Alex Ferguson was appointed in November 1986 and retired in May 2013. He was in charge for exactly 1500 games, winning just under 60% of them.

    His record usurped that of Sir Matt Busby who was in the dugout for 24 years between 1945 and 1969, he managed the team in over 1200 games winning 13 trophies including the European Cup in 1968, his record shows that he won just over 50% of matches whilst at the helm.

  • Which Manchester United Manager Has The Best Win Percentage

    Sir Alex Ferguson tops the list although current boss Erik Ten Hag at the end of the 2022/23 season has a 66% win record from his 59 games.

  • Which Manchester United Manager Has The Worst Win Percentage

    Ahead of and during the Second World War, certain sources say that Jimmy Porter was the manager of Manchester United. With football suspended for a large chunk of this period he only managed 44 games winning 11 of them (25%).

  • How Often Do Manchester United Change Their Manager

    The average time spent as a Manchester United manager is 4 Years and 8 Months. Other clubs change their managers much more often


  • How has the Next Manchester United Manager betting market changed since the last manager was sacked

    If anything, Erik Ten Hag in his first full season, has cemented his position as manager. He looks to have built an infrastructure at the club and, unlike OGS and Ralf Rangnick, gives the impression that he is solely in charge. If new owners who nearly always want to make an impression (e.g., Todd Boehly at Chelsea) instigate change, this may resurrect the next Manchester United manager betting market.
