Next Republic Of Ireland Manager Betting Odds

Updated: 5968 Football

The next Republic Of Ireland Manager betting normally features former players. 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.

However, reports suggest that he was the FAI's number one targetwhich may be why it took such a long period of time. It has been eight months since former manager Stephen Kennys's contract was not renewed. If another change comes, the best betting sites will have all the next Republic of Ireland manager betting odds.

Who Could Be The Next Republic Of Ireland Manager

Prior to Hallgrimsson being appointed in July 2024 the following managers featured in the next ROI manager market. Some of these names may feature again if another change is needed. 

John O'Shea

The Waterford-born O'Shea played predominately at Manchester United and Sunderland before moving into coaching. He is yet to be a full-time manager but should be regarded as having enough experience, having worked with the national team on and off since 2020.  

Willie Sagnol

It would be a left-field decision if Willie Sagnol were given the ROI manager position ahead of home grown candidates. The 47-year-old is currently the boss of the Georgia national side who performed well at Euro 2024.

Lee Carsley 

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.

Anthony Barry 

Anthony Barry still needs to manage a club, but his CV is packed with prestigious Assistant Manager roles. He has had spells at  Bayern Munich and the Republic of Ireland, Belgian and Portuguese national teams.

Neil Lennon

Chris Coleman 

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 was managing the Ghana national team but was dismissed at the beginning of 2024.

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

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 

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

Kieran McKenna 

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 more than compete after securing promotion to the EPL in 2024.
