Next Sunderland Manager Odds | Michael Beale Replacements

Sunderland AFC announced on the February 19th that their manager Michael Beale would no longer be continuing in the role. Following his sacking Sunderland would win just two of their last 13 games and fell from 10th to 16th which, for a club who sat in the play-offs for a lot of the season, was an abysmal finish to the season.

Who could take Sunderland to the next level? It feels like their manager saga has gone on for a very long time but Liam Rosenior is currently the favourite for the role! Could the former Hull City manager show the club what they are missing with one of the Championship's biggest clubs?

Latest Sunderland Manager Betting Odds

As Sunderland look to get promoted back to the Premier League, the next permanent Sunderland manager will have a serious task on their hands to get them promoted from the football league. Since their relegation from the Premier League back in 2017, they've been in 6 promotion battles, only succeeding on one occasion. The issue that Sunderland have had is drawing games, Alex Neil drew 9 out of his 23 games and Jack Ross drew 27 out of 75, which led to both of them losing their jobs. If they turned half their draws into wins, they would have been promoted from League One almost every season they were at that level.

Kevin Muscat is a Free Agent Who Might Interest Black Cats

Kevin Muscat is a name that will be known by football fans who watched the beautiful game back in the late 90's, early 00's. He made 308 appearances across spells at Crystal Palace, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Rangers and Millwall. Muscat has won the league with Melbourne Victory and Yokohama F. Marinos, which will be the kind of experience that Sunderland will be looking for after Tony Mowbray. it could be that Muscat is deemed as too big of a risk. However, when looking at the names in the running, every name would present a large risk for a club of Sunderland's stature as they look to rise up the Championship table.

Frank Lampard Prominent in Betting

If the Sunderland owners are looking to bring in a big name, then there aren't many bigger names in English football than Frank Lampard - Lampard has struggled to match his impressive playing career at a management level and if Sunderland are looking to win league games and get into the play offs, Lampard's experience doesn't quite fit the bill. Lampard has Championship experience with Derby County but has stated that it would take the 'right job' to get him back into football. If Sunderland are willing to take the risk, it would be one of the most interesting appointments of the season.

Heckingbottom Among Betting Favourites to Land Sunderland Job

Recently, the question has been asked - who will be the next Sheffield United manager? After Paul Heckingbottom was sacked from the Blades, it looks like Heckingbottom could race into another job at Sunderland. If Sunderland's new manager is somebody who has a history of winning promotion, then Heckingbottom could end up as Sunderland's newest recruit in their promotion battle.

What surprise names are in the Next Sunderland Manager betting odds?

When looking at the next Sunderland head coach, there are a number of names that would be a shocking hiring by the club. Firstly, Alex Neil sits in the betting odds despite leaving Sunderland for Stoke City. However, as Neil sits under pressure at Stoke, he could look to jump back to the Black Cats.

Another name that would be a big surprise would be Neil Warnock, who managed Huddersfield Town to safety last season. Warnock has an outstanding reputation at Championship level but likely hasn't got exactly what Sunderland are looking for on this occasion, Warnock has stated that he would like to join a side pushing at the top of the table rather than in a relegation battle so you can be sure that he'll put his name in the hat for Sunderland.

Other names that could surprise many are former manager Roy Keane, who also seems to be in the running for the next Republic of Ireland manager and Kevin Phillips, who won the Northern Premier League in his only season as manager of local side South Shields.
