Des Buckingham is the early favourite to take over as the next Oxford United boss
|Next Oxford United manager
OLBG now see that Oxford-born Buckingham is 3/1 in the market to be the next manager of the U's with the 38-year-old having history at the club after a spell there during his youth career.
Buckingham turned to coaching with his professional career seeing him work through the Oxford United youth squads with more than 20 players transitioning to professional contracts during his time there.
The Englishman's managerial career has seen him go all around the world with spells at Wellington Phoenix, Stoke City's U21s, New Zealand's youth teams and Mumbai City where he currently manages.
BetVictor have put him as the 3/1 favourite to make a return home to Oxford to manage Oxford United after Liam Manning dramatically left the club to take over at Bristol City.
What the expert says...
Liam Manning's shock departure sees 2nd placed Oxford United now looking for a new manager as they look to continue their strong start to the season with a new man in charge! Oxford-born Des Buckingham is the early favourite to take over with a 25% chance he does so according to the odds.
Former boss Liam Manning leaves to take over at Bristol City
Oxford United fans will surely be disappointed to see Liam Manning leave the club to take over at Bristol City after their fantastic start to the League One season sees them sat in second place.
The U's are three points behind leaders Portsmouth with Manning being in charge for the club for just 8 months, but he has decided to leave for a "terrific opportunity" at Ashton Gate with Bristol City.
Oxford's chairman Grant Ferguson said that the club did everything they could to keep Manning but they unfortunately couldn't as attentions now turn to who will take over at the club next.

Oxford United now 4/1 to win League One after strong start to season
What a difference a week makes with Oxford United now looking for a new manager despite sitting in second place in the League One table after Manning's departure.
Portsmouth sit at the top of the table and are the clear favourites in the betting odds to win the league this year with bookies putting them as a short price at 5/4.
Oxford are the second favourites in the betting market at 4/1 with those odds giving an implied probability of 20% that they end the season as League One Champions.
Bolton and Peterborough wrap up the top four of the betting market at 5/1 and 8/1 respectively and whoever comes in at Oxford will be hoping to keep them pushing for promotion this season.
