Who Will Be The Next Southampton manager

Below are potential candidates should the job become available today based on previous people appearing in the betting odds when the position was vacant last time, to others who have a profile that would fit the club in terms of the last few managers Southampton have had.

Steven Gerrard

The former Liverpool and England player did very well with Glasgow Rangers and poorly with Aston Villa. His managerial reputation has been knocked by his time in the West Midlands, but a vacancy at Southampton looks a good fit.

It was reported that contract talks had broken down between Southampton and the former Leeds United manager when the club were looking for Nathan Jones's replacement. The board may revisit this project in the coming years.

Graham Potter

The former Brighton and Chelsea manager is too good a coach not to be managing a top-quality side despite his travails at Stamford Bridge, where a mixture of new owners and too many new highly-paid acquisitions scuppered his chances of success. At some point in his career, we suspect the English national team may call for his services; the Southampton job may be a helpful stepping stone. 

Kjetil Knutsen

The Norwegian was the initial favourite for the Brighton job before Roberto  De Zerbi was appointed. He now features in virtually every EPL managerial market. His current team, where he has been for five years, are FK Bodo/Glimt, who won back-to-back Eliteserien titles in Norway and who are now regularly seen playing in European club competitions, giving Knutsen and his team a much higher profile.

Marcelo Gallardo

Marcelo Gallardo was quoted at 10/1 to become the next Southampton manager in the spring of 2023. The former manager of River Plate has not been in charge of any team outside Argentina but Saints have history with Argentinian managers and securing Gallardo to manage them would be a real coup.

FAQ

Southampton Next Manager Betting FAQs

  • Who Is the Longest Serving Manager Of Southampton

    The legendary Ted Bates managed the club between 1955 and 1973. He then moved upstairs as a director and then president.  He was Mr Southampton and was the architect of their current status

     A new statue of Bates was unveiled at St Mary's in 2008.

  • How Long Was Laurie McMenemy At The Club

    He succeeded Ted Bates and was at Southampton for 12 years. 

    His time at the club included the memorable FA Cup Final win over Manchester United in 1976.

  • Who Was The First Southampton Manager

    Records of Cecil Knight between 1892 and 1895 show he won 15 of his 25 matches.

  • Which Southampton Manager Had The Worst Win Percentage

    Of the permanent Saints Managers, Steve Wigley, who had been caretaker boss previously, was appointed in August 2004. He only won 3 of his 17 games (17.65%) and was gone before Christmas. Mark Hughes (March 2018 - December 2018) only did slightly better winning just 5 of 27 games for a percentage win rate of 18.5%

  • Which Southampton Manager Had The Best Win Percentage

    Alfred McMinn (1896-1897) won 19 of his 27 matches for a win percentage of just over 70%. In more recent times the winning most percentage was achieved by Nigel Adkins(2010-2013) with him winning 54 % of matches whilst in the Saints dugout.

  • What Traits Will The Next Southampton Manager Need

    The owners who acquired a controlling stake in Southampton FC in January 2022 will be under pressure to get their next appointment right after some false dawns with Nathan Jones and Reuben Telles. They may need to find a manager who has previously achieved promotion. (Nathan Jones may have been ideal for a relegated club?) With games every 3 or 4 days in the SkyBet Championship, you need a manager who has experienced this level of intensity. You must also have a squad deep enough to be unaffected by the inevitable injuries that this punishing schedule will induce. The new manager will need the tactics and man-management skills to handle the current Southampton players who may not wish to be plying their trade in a lower league, and he will need to identify and recruit younger players who can "add something" to the established team. Finally, at times he may need a thick skin to placate the fans immediate expectations of bouncing straight back into the EPL.
