Next Crystal Palace Manager Odds: Oliver Glasner Favourite To Replace Hodgson
© PA

Roy Hodgson has stepped down as Crystal Palace manager and the best betting sites have opened a market on who will succeed him.

Palace's recent 3-1 defeat to Chelsea means they have now won just two of their last 15 matches in all competitions.

While all of the blame does not lie at Hodgson’s door, head coaches are usually the figures that pay the ultimate price. 

Twinning this with the fact that the 76-year-old was recently taken ill during one of Palace's training sessions, means it was probably a fitting time for the former England manager to vacate his position.

The news means that Steve Parish has a big decision to make. The Palace chairman understands whoever he employs as Hodgson's successor has enormous shoes to fill.

Who will be the next manager through the door in south London? Let’s take a closer look at the latest betting odds.

Glasner Looks Nailed On To Succeed Hodgson

Oliver Glasner was a 33/1 shot to be named Roy Hodgson's successor. Fast forward and he is now the 1/10 favourite with betting apps.

The Austrian has been out of the dugout since leaving his role as Eintracht Frankfurt boss at the end of the 2022/23 season, but looks set to jump back into management with the London club.

During his tenure, the 49-year-old led the German side to a Europa League triumph in 2022, before reaching a DFB Pokal final a year later.

As a free agent, Palace will not have to pay a fee for Glasner, and it is looking increasingly likely that he will be in the Eagles' dugout soon.

McKenna Second Favourite With Cooper Close Behind

Kieran McKenna is widely regarded as one of the brightest young coaches in England right now. 

After leading Ipswich Town to promotion to the Championship last term, his side are now in contention for a place in the Premier League.

McKenna is fully focused on the job at Portman Road for now, but a concrete offer from a club of Palaces' stature could prove too hard to turn down. 

The former Manchester United assistant coach is now the 5/1 second favourite to succeed Hodgson.

Cooper And Potter Offer Premier League Experience

Steve Cooper has vacated his position at the top of the marker and is now the 6/1 third favourite to take over at Selhurst Park.

The Crystal Palace hierarchy, especially Parish and the sporting director Dougie Freedman, are known admirers of Cooper. 

The Welshman lost his job at Nottingham Forest two months ago and could be persuaded to jump back after a brief spell outside of the dugout.

Graham Potter is now 12/1 with football betting sites to replace Hodgson at the helm of Palace.

His appointment would represent a significant coup for the Eagles, but his Brighton & Hove Albion connections could prove to be a barrier.

Parker And Lopetegui Await Next Opportunity

Scott Parker started life as a manage in phenomenal fashion, earning promotions to the Premier League with both Fulham and Bournemouth.

It was these two success that saw the former England midfielder rewarded with a job in charge of Belgian side Club Brugge.

However, after winning just two of his 12 games in charge he was sacked and has been a free agent ever since. Parker does provide an efficient option for the Eagles and is 16/1 to land the job.

Julen Lopetegui left Wolverhampton Wanderers on the eve of the current campaign amid disagreements with the club’s board. 

He has since made it clear that he would like to manage another team in the Premier League. 

“I would like to stay here in England,” he told Sky Sports in December. It is therefore no surprise to see him among the potential candidates at 25/1 in this market.

Lampard And Mourinho Could Return To London

Another manager on offer at odds of 25/1 is former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.

The 45-year-old has been without a club since he left his caretaker position with the Blues at the end of the 2022/23 season.

Lampard has already managed at two clubs in the Premier League and could make the move across London to join Palace.

Jose Mourinho is looking for his next role following his sacking as Roma manager, and new betting sites rate his chances of taking charge at 25/1 too.

It is hard to see this one happening, though, and not just because of the Portuguese’s probable wage demands.

Mourinho is thought to have offers from bigger clubs across Europe that he may consider before jumping back into management.

Solskjaer And Van Nistelrooy Outsiders At This Stage

Ole Gunner Solskjaer remains out of work following his dismissal as Manchester United manager in November 2021. 

While the Norwegian did have some success at Old Trafford, it is unclear whether another Premier League club would consider appointing him. Solskjaer is a long shot at 33/1.

Ruud van Nistelrooy (33/1) looks like he won't get the nod for the vacancy on this occasion.

Having resigned as PSV Eindhoven manager at the back end of the 2022/23 season, it looks as though the Dutchman will continue to bide his time before getting back in the hot seat.
