Walsall, Brentford, Aston Villa, Norwich City, and Leicester City have all been managed by Dean Smith. His reputation has taken a knock in recent years, but he has shown he can manage clubs that need to improve. His best period came at Aston Villa, where he guided the West Midlands club into the EPL.

The former Leeds United manager has been in the frame for recent EPL vacancies (Leicester City, Southampton). It seems he wants to accept a position that is the right fit rather than just taking the next job that comes along. 

Carlos Corberan

Between 2017 and 2020, Corberan assisted Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds United when they won promotion from the Championship and during their stay in the top tier. Since then, he has struck out on his own after being appointed at Huddersfield Town, Olympiacos and West Bromwich Albion.

The betting odds for The Next Sheffield United Manager will often see some fluctuation and speculation on who will take over in the hot seat when the current Blades boss departs his position. 

Here is a round-up of the Next ‘Club’ Manager Betting Timeline from our OLBG News feed 

2nd October 2023

Sheffield United and Paul Heckingbottom's misery continued this past weekend with a 2-0 away defeat to West Ham, and bookmakers have kept the Blades boss as the favourite to go down.

Further defensive uncertainties were on display at the London Stadium on Saturday, with the Blades showing no signs of getting anything from the game with West Ham on the front foot straight away.

Paul Heckingbottom now has an even tougher task on his hands than he will have thought to keep the Blades in the Premier League after the loss to West Ham was preceded by that 8-0 defeat to Newcastle.

BetVictor has kept Heckingbottom as the betting favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave after that latest defeat, with his odds currently at 4/9 to be sacked next.

25th November 2021

Slavisa Jokanovic is sacked after winning just six of his 19 games. He will be replaced by Paul Heckingbottom, who has surprisingly been given a whopping four and half year contract.
