Next Republic Of Ireland Manager Betting Odds

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.

Republic Of Ireland Manager Betting Odds

A change of  Republic Of Ireland manager had looked on its the way according to the bookies, after the poor results achieved by the current manager Stephen Kenny. 

He has tried to radically alter the style of the national team, and many have applauded his efforts to move away from the 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 results have not followed.

Who Could Be The Next Republic Of Ireland Manager

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. 

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.

Roy Keane

Supported 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.

Neil Lennon

He is another 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.

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 compete.
