Next Republic Of Ireland Manager Betting Odds

Updated: 4694 Football

The next Republic Of Ireland Manager betting has former players towards the head of the betting. Roy Keane, Keith Andrews, Robbie Keane are all in the market. There is of course no reason why a former green jersey wearer has to manage the national team and the FAI could cast their net wider as they did in 1986 with Jack Charlton, and again in 2008 when Italian Giovanni Trapattoni was appointed.

Current Republic Of Ireland Manager

Republic of Ireland manager Stephen Kenny was under growing pressure after their European Championship exit. Questions were being asked as to whether Kenny should be gone and on the 22nd November 2023 he was sacked.  A change of Republic Of Ireland manager has looked on its way for a while after the poor results (PL40 W11, D12, L17) achieved by Kenny. He had tried to radically alter the national team's style, and many have applauded his efforts to move away from traditional long-ball tactics. He wanted the national team to inspire the next generation with the quality of football being played by his side; however, wins, as you can see, have been thin on the ground. The leading bookmakers have now priced up the potential next ROI manager. 

Anthony Barry Plunge

Anthony Barry was available at 33/1 in December 2023. As we go into the New Year he has been supported into as short as 6/4 to be the next Republic Of Ireland manager.

Who Could Be The Next Republic Of Ireland Manager

Anthony Barry - 6/4

Anthony Barry still needs to manage a club, but his CV is packed with prestigious Assistant Manager roles. He is currently working with Thomas Tuchel at Bayern Munich after spells as a coach at the Republic of Ireland Belgian and Portuguese national teams.

Neil Lennon - 4/1

He is a controversial figure, but his record as a manager is notable. He won the Scottish Premiership on five occasions and the Scottish FA Cup four times when in charge at Celtic.Editorial credit: Marco Iacobucci Epp /

Lee Carsley - 4/1

His rise to being an in-demand marquee coach has been stratospheric, and his betting odds as one of the favourites to be the next Republic of Ireland manager are testament to this.

He has yet to manage any football league clubs, but his success with the England Under 20 and 21 sides has alerted the bookmakers to include his name in a range of betting markets, including this one.

Chris Coleman - 4/1

Chris Coleman was the national team manager of Wales between 2012 and 2017. He guided the team to the European Championship semi-finals in 2016 before losing to eventual winners Portugal. 

If the FAI wanted an experienced boss after Kenny, Coleman would fit the bill perfectly.

Chris Hughton

The former Tottenham Right Back is a proven manager, but his star has faded after recent appointments. He is currently managing the Ghana national team.

 Steve Bruce - 16/1

The much travelled Steve Bruce has manged twelve English clubs, his last position was at West Bromwich Albion who he left in October 2022.

Roy Keane - 16/1

Editorial credit: Influential Photography / Shutterstock.comSupported in the betting is Roy Keane. These days, we are more used to seeing him ranting and raving (being assaulted) as a TV Pundit, but he would be a popular choice for many fans, and of all the names quoted, he has the most big-game experience.

Gus Poyet - 33/1

Seems a strange inclusion for the next ROI manager but his Greece side beat the Irish in both Euro 2024 qualification games.  

Kieran McKenna - 33/1

The Ipswich Town manager is another candidate who has impressed. Appointed to the East Anglian club in December 2021, he guided the club to an eleventh-place finish. The following season, Ipswich gained automatic promotion to the Championship after finishing in second place behind Plymouth Argyle. The Championship was expected to be a big test, but Ipswich and their rookie manager have shown they can compete.
