Osian Roberts leads the way with bookies to be the next Wales manager

Osian Roberts is the favourite with UK Betting Sites to be the next Wales manager after the Football Association of Wales announced the sacking of Rob Page on Friday.

Roberts is currently caretaker manager and head of development of Italian Serie B club Como 1907 alongside Cesc Fabregas but could be the man that the FAW turn to next.

The Welsh coach has been part of the international team's setup previously with assistant manager spells under Chris Coleman and Ryan Giggs.

What the expert says..

Now could finally be the time we see Osian Roberts take charge of Wales with bookies placing him as the favourite to take over from Rob Page after the FAW sacked him on Friday morning. Roberts is evens to be the next Wales manager with Craig Bellamy following him in the betting odds.

Craig Bellamy sits as 3/1 second favourite in the betting market

Former Wales striker Craig Bellamy sits as the 3/1 second favourite to be the next Wales manager in what could be the next step in his career.

Bellamy was appointed the acting Head Coach of Burnley after Vincent Kompany's departure but the club are "actively searching" for a replacement this summer.

It may be that Bellamy sees the Wales job as his next role in what would be his first main managerial role after previous assistant spells.

Rob Page was sacked by the FAW on Friday morning after three and a half years in charge

Football Association of Wales announced on Friday morning that Rob Page was sacked as the Wales manager after three and a half years in charge of his country.

Page faced calls to leave after Wales lost to Armenia in Euros qualifying but a win over Croatia saw fortunes turn around briefly before they lost in the play-off final to Poland on penalties.

Despite missing out on the Euros this summer, the FAW backed Page saying that he would lead them for the 2026 World Cup qualifiers but three months later that has changed and they are now looking for a new leader.
