Latest Manchester United next manager odds

Zinedine Zidane is the 11/10 favourite to be appointed as the next permanent Manchester United manager following the dismissal of Jose Mourinho.

Mauricio Pochettino is second-favourite in the betting at 4/1, with former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte next best at 6/1.

Caretaker manager and former United captain Michael Carrick is 25/1 to be handed the role permanently, while England manager Gareth Southgate is 25/1.

Coral’s John Hill said, “Manchester United are unlikely to rush their recruitment process for their next manager, and the early betting suggests that after careful consideration, they will turn to Frenchman Zinedine Zidane to take over in the summer following the success he had in the Champions League at Real Madrid.”

“Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is second best in the market and has already attracted a flurry of bets, while former Chelsea manager Antonio Contre is also prominent to make a return to the Premier League,” added Hill.
