Next England Manager Odds: Graham Potter Now Favourite To Replace Southgate
© PA

The top of the betting market to find Gareth Southgate's replacement as England manager continues to change on a daily basis. 

On Monday, Eddie Howe was the favourite with the best betting sites, but the Newcastle manager has been usurped by Graham Potter.

The advantage Potter has over Howe is that he is currently out of work and would be free to start work immediately. Newcastle would want compensation for losing Howe's services.  

The vacancy follows Southgate's decision to resign after guiding England to the final of Euro 2024, where they were beaten 2-1 by Spain.

The next permanent manager might have to change the style of play if they are to make a positive impact with supporters, who were critical of Southgate's tactics and late substitutions during Euro 2024.

The first match for the new manager will be the Nations League opener in September against the Republic of Ireland. 

In March next year, the qualifiers get under way for the 2026 World Cup, which will be held in the United States, Mexico and Canada. 

Bookmakers have compiled their list of possible candidates to replace Southgate, so let's take a look at the managers who could replace Southgate as England's next manager.

Potter Edges Closer To England Job

Graham Potter has been near the top of the betting market to be England's next manager for the last few months, and he is back to being favourite to replace Southgate.

Potter's last job was as Chelsea manager, but his tenure only lasted 31 games, during which time he won 12 times. 

His dismissal undid some of the good work he did at Swansea and Brighton, which gave him the opportunity to manage the Stamford Bridge club.

If the Football Association want Potter and Potter wants the job, then it should be straightforward process. 

After almost 16 months out of work, Potter is the 11/4 favourite on new betting sites to be named England's next permanent manager.

Howe Drops To Second Favourite

Over the weekend, Eddie Howe emerged as the favourite to be England's next permanent. 

But whatever happened on Monday, his odds are beginning to drift and he is now 10/3 with football betting sites to replace Southgate. 

Howe is currently the Newcastle manager, and they will not want to lose their boss, who guided the Magpies back to the Champions League after a 20-year absence. 

A compensation package will be needed to lure Howe away from St James' Park, assuming he wants the job right now in his career.

Howe is the type of coach who would probably miss the day-to-day contact with his players that the international game does not provide and there is also a big question mark over whether the FA could afford him.

Carsley Can't Be Ignored

Lee Carsley has been in the conversation as one of the candidates to replace Southgate as England manager.  

The Football Association will have noticed the path Spain manager Luis de la Fuente has taken before guiding La Roja to Euro 2024 glory at England's expense.

De la Fuente was in charge when Spain won the Euros with his country's Under-19s and Under-21s, before taking over from Luis Enrique. 

Carsley, whose odds were 12/1 following England's defeat to Spain in the Euro 2024 final, is now the 10/3 third favourite with William Hill to take a similar route by being promoted to the senior side after leading the Under-21s to European glory in 2023.

Could Klopp Replace Southgate?

Jurgen Klopp waved goodbye to Liverpool after nine seasons on Merseyside and the question is what will be the next move for the German?

Klopp vowed he would never manage another Premier League club, which keeps the door open for a possible venture into international management.

The England job would be ideal for Klopp who admitted he didn't have the energy to continue to manage Liverpool. 

The international schedule means Klopp wouldn't have to invest as much time and energy into the role of England manager, which might appeal to him. And he knows the squad of players very well.

The former Borussia Dortmund head coach would probably like to take charge of the Germany national team one day, and his odds are currently 12/1 with Bet365 to land the Three Lions job next.

Pochettino On Look Out For New Job

Mauricio Pochettino was 10/1 with betting apps for the England during the group phase, but he is now 12/1.

Pochettino only spent one season at Chelsea, but a strong end to the campaign saw the Blues finish in sixth spot. 

Mauricio Pochettino

The popular Argentinian has experience of coaching in high-pressured environments, such as at Paris St-Germain, and he steered Tottenham to the Champions League final five years ago.

Pochettino has a reputation for playing attacking football which seems to be one of the main criticisms of Southgate, whose reluctance to make changes at crucial moments also frustrates England supporters.

Will FA Give Lampard A Call? 

Frank Lampard spent much of the Euros watching England in his role as a pundit for the BBC. Will it give him the urge to manage his country?

Like Southgate, Lampard (16/1) would be another former Three Lions player to take control of the team. 

Lampard's last managerial job was at his former club Chelsea, but it didn't go particularly well as the Blues won just one of his 11 games in charge at the end of the 2022/23 season. 

The 46-year-old is qualified to manage his country, but it might be too early in his career right now.

Tuchel Ready To Rebuild His Career

Thomas Tuchel was hoping to rebuild his managerial career at Bayern Munich, but it didn't exactly pan out the way the German would have liked. 

Tuchel did steer Bayern to their 11th successive title in 2023, but he was only in charge for the final nine league games. He was also in charge for their exits from the German Cup and Champions League that season too. 

Last season was a disaster for Bayern and Tuchel in particular as the Bavarian club finished trophyless for the first time in 12 season.

Tuchels odds to replace Southgate have shortened from 33/1 to 20/1.

Is Guardiola Ready For A New Challenge?

Pep Guardiola (25/1) has won everything at Manchester City and sooner or later the time will come for him to move on. 

Guardiola’s contract at Manchester City expires at the end of the 2024/25 season and he is unlikely to leave his position before then.

However, the FA could employ an interim manager to replace Southgate and then wait for Guardiola to take over in 2025

The bigger question is whether the City boss would be interested in the Three Lions job? Will he miss the day-to-day involvement of being a club manager?

Postecoglou And Low Enter The Market

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou and former Germany boss Joachim Low are the two latest names to be added to the betting market. 

Postecoglou (33/1) is preparing for his second season as Spurs boss and the Australian might not be willing to leave that project just yet. 

Low (33/1) has experience of managing on the international stage, guiding Germany to their fourth World Cup win in Brazil in 2014.

Former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri remains an outsider at 40/1.
