Next Manchester United manager betting odds – Solskjaer now favourite

Posted on: 11th January 2019

Many football experts were taken aback when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was installed as caretaker manager of Manchester United for the remainder of the season, although they could be dumbfounded if he receives the job on a permanent basis.

Solskjaer has overseen four consecutive victories since taking charge of the Red Devils and the Norwegian now appears to be in the driving seat when it comes to getting the gig on a permanent basis.

The former Manchester United striker is trading at 2/1 with BetVictor to become the permanent boss of the Red Devils, with Solskjaer clearly interested in continuing beyond the end of the campaign.

He’s clearly popular with the players and him replacing Jose Mourinho have seen certain players come to the fore including Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba.

However, Solskjaer has little managerial experience and perhaps Mauricio Pochettino can be persuaded to leave Tottenham to arrive at Old Trafford, with the Argentine currently available at 5/2.

There’s no smoke without fire and Poch has been linked with the vacant post since Mourinho was sacked, with Zinedine Zidane next in the betting at 8/1 and the former Real Madrid manager could be on the club’s radar.

Max Allegri is a 10/1 chance with BetVictor and the Juventus manager might fancy his chance of resurrecting the fortunes of the world’s biggest club, with Eddie Howe out to 16/1 and it’s hard to see the Bournemouth manager getting the gig.
