West Ham United and David Moyes have parted company which is not a complete surprise considering that the Scot was largely hired as someone to put out a few fires following Slaven Bilic’s difficult start to the season.
It now means that the London club are searching for their latest manager and it’s Manuel Pellegrini who is the 6/5 favourite, with the Chilean having previously won the Premier League title with Manchester City.
Next West Ham United manager odds with BetVictor
Manuel Pellegrini 6/5
Paulo Fonseca 7/4
Rafael Benitez 8/1
Unai Emery 14/1
Carlo Ancelotti 20/1
Marco Silva 25/1
Pellegrini is currently the head coach of Hebei China Fortune in the Chinese Super League, although he could be interested in a return to England and the 64-year-old would clearly be paid megabucks to take charge at the London Stadium.
Paulo Fonseca is the second favourite at 5/2 and he’s also been linked with the Everton manager’s job, with the Shakhtar Donetsk manager having been in charge of the Ukrainian side since 2016 and he would arrive with a strong reputation.
Rafael Benitez famously came close to becoming West Ham manager before deciding to switch to Real Madrid and the Spaniard would be welcome with open arms after the job he’s done with Newcastle, with BetVictor making him an 8/1 shot.
Unai Emery is 14/1 and Carlo Ancelotti is available at 20/1 although much depends on the war chest that is available to a potential manager considering that the Hammers have been scrapping against relegation for the past few seasons.
Marco Silva could be an interesting candidate at 25/1 and he’s the current favourite for the Everton job, although the Portuguese might consider this post a more attractive position.
