Next England manager odds
There has arguably never been more pressure on an England manager than what currently sits on the shoulders of Gareth Southgate. Despite having the second highest win percentage in England's history, Southgate is under pressure to perform at the 2024 European Championship. If England fail to match expectations, Southgate could leave the Three Lions and a new manager would be introduced. It is worth noting that Southgate has been in-charge for seven years and has been England's longest reigning manager since Sir Bobby Robson. With a 2nd, 4th and 6th place in three major tournaments, not including England's third place in the UEFA Nations League, Southgate could be regarded as the most successful England manager since Alf Ramsey, who famously won England the World Cup back in 1966; however, some believe that Southgate has under-performed with the squad and fixtures that he was given and that is why many are eager for the next England manager to come in.
Who are the favourites for the next England manager?
It is worth noting that the likes of Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp are unlikely to sit back and take a job that only requires coaching a team during certain months of the year, these kinds of manager are going to be working around the clock to get the very best out of their teams, making them unsuited to International football. So, these names you won't see manage an international team until they look to wind down their career or they feel they have accomplished everything at a club level.
Names that are commonly linked with the England role are Eddie Howe, Graham Potter and Lee Carsley, three managers with very contrasting experiences in recent years. Eddie Howe is the favourite for both the bookies and the fans after an exception spell at St James' Park with Newcastle United and it is this that has led to him being top of the next England manager betting odds. However, similar to Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp, it seems unlikely that Eddie Howe would be content in a role where he would only work with his squad during a small period of the year with many new signings at Newcastle stating they weren't fit enough to play under Howe when they joined the club.
Could Graham Potter be the next England manager?
That brings us to Graham Potter, who had a very good spell in charge of every club he went too before ending up at Chelsea, where he was sacked with a win percentage of just 38.7%. Potter is a manager who will be desperate for a chance to manage at a top level once again and a spell as England manager could prove to be mutually beneficial for both parties as Potter could succeed Gareth Southgate and have two years before the World Cup to implement his style and get England firing. It is for this reason that Potter sits at the top of the Next England manager odds.
Could Lee Carsley be the next England manager?
If Graham Potter takes on a role before the European Championships, it could lead England to go in a different direction and allow someone to follow in the same footsteps as Gareth Southgate. Lee Carsley took over the England Under 21's manager role from Aidy Boothroyd and has a fantastic win percentage of 79.2% from his first 24 games at that level. Carsley led England to the UEFA European Under-21 Championship in 2023, a competition that Southgate only managed a group stage elimination in during his time. Carsley has certainly impressed the higher ups at England but has he done enough to secure one of the biggest jobs in International football as England's next permanent manager.
Other names linked with the England job include Steve Cooper, Sarina Wiegman and Gary O'Neil. However, a lot can change before next Summer's European Championship.
