Next Huddersfield Town Manager Odds

Fighting relegating and out of sorts Huddersfield Town may have a decision to make at the end of the season if Andre Breitenreiter doesn't put in a satisfactory job between now and the end of the season. Although Huddersfield were expected to be in the relegation zone at the start of the season, their campaign as been unacceptable in the eyes of the board with both Neil Warnock and Darren Moore losing their jobs during the 2023/24 campaign. Andre Breitenreiter was chosen to replace Darren Moore and picked up his first win at Vicarage Road after losing at home to Hull City in his first game.

The decision to replace Moore was taken after the club drew 1-1 away to Queens Park Rangers, who were also relegation rivals. The club would be justified in making the decision, beating Sheffield Wednesday, Sunderland and Watford in their next five games, which is the same amount of games that the club would win in the previous 18 games.

Huddersfield Town have made it clear, relegation isn't an option but if it happens, we'll likely see a new manager in the dugout at the John Smith's stadium.

Who will be the next Huddersfield Town manager?

Since Carlos Coberan left Huddersfield Town, they've struggled to put any consistent form together, particularly in-front of goal. The next Huddersfield manager will have to change that, especially if the club end up relegated to League One. However, the names that could be linked with the job won't fill fans with confidence.

Could Wayne Rooney be the next Huddersfield Town manager?

Wayne Rooney has always managed clubs that aren't expected to get promoted, so his win record can be defended at Derby County and D.C. United. However, after leaving America for the Championship, it was expected that Rooney's win percentage could increase, particularly as Birmingham City were sat in sixth when the club decided to hire Rooney. Unfortunately, the former England captain would win just two of his 15 games in charge of the club and was sacked in 2024.

Rooney's next move will likely be abroad, especially as Birmingham's season was derailed during his time at the club. However, he could be tempted to move further down the football league and if Huddersfield Town are relegated, they should have one of the best squads in the division and the club would be sitting in a decent position for him to get them promoted, which could be exactly what Rooney needs to reinvigorate his career.

Could Michael Duff be the next Huddersfield Town manager?

After finishing in 10th position last season, Swansea City fans will have been hoping that replacing Russell Martin with Michael Duff would push them towards the positions that could provide promotion to the Premier League. However, the former Barnsley man didn't quite go to plan for the Welsh club who themselves were looking for their next manager within in the year.

It could be argued that Duff was destined to fail with the likes of Joel Piroe, Morgan Whittaker, Oliver Ntcham and Michael Obafemi leaving the club. Their replacements, didn't hit the ground running which could lead another club sitting in the lower leagues scouting Duff as a solid manager - particularly after his spell with Barnsley where they missed out on promotion due to a 120+3 minute winner from Josh Windass of Sheffield Wednesday. Duff could be a fantastic appointment for Huddersfield.

What other names could be linked with the Huddersfield Town manager job?

It is widely example that Andre Breitenreiter will just take temporary charge of the club, meaning that there will likely be another manager in the dugout next season. The likes of Alex Neil, John Mousinho and Gary Rowett may be linked. However, Mousinho will likely be in the Championship next season with Portsmouth, so it is unlikely he leaves the South Coast. Whoever takes on the role will do so in difficult circumstances and the club will need to push on.

John Eustace - currently at Blackburn Rovers and Paul Heckingbottom - formerly of Sheffield United are two managers who may take on the role if the club stays up this season but we can't see either taking over the club if they are relegated from the second tier.
