Next Plymouth Argyle Manager Odds: Rooney Set To Be New Manager
© PA

After five months out of work, it looks like Wayne Rooney is ready to return to football management.

The best betting sites certainly think so as his odds to become Plymouth's next permanent manager have been suspended.

Rooney will take over at the Championship club after Neil Dewsnip successfully guided the Pilgrims to safety on the final day of the season courtesy of a 1-0 home win over Hull City.

Dewsnip stepped away from the role immediately after that game and the challenge for Rooney will be to make Plymouth a force in the second tier.

Heckingbottom In The Hunt For Other Jobs

Paul Heckingbottom may have missed out on the Plymouth job, but it shouldn't bee too long before he is back in management. 

The former Sheffield United manager deserves a lot of credit for the job he did at Bramall Lane to get the Blades promoted at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.

However, with a very small budget, it was always going to be the case that United struggled in the top flight.

Heckingbottom was sacked last December and has had plenty of time to recharge the batteries before a return to management.

Rosenior's Future Lies Elsewhere

It was almost a case of 'if you can't beat them, join them' for Liam Rosenior.

Rosenior's last game in charge of Hull City was that 1-0 defeat on the final day of the season, which ended the Tigers' slim hopes of making the play-offs.

City finished seventh, three points outside the play-off places and Rosenior was sacked two days later.

Rosenior was one of the early favourites on betting apps to take over at Plymouth, but it's believed he turned down an approach from the club.

Regarded as one of the brightest young managers in England, it shouldn't be too long before the former defender is back in management. 

Bayern Assistant Barry Remains On Standby

Anthony Barry emerged as one of the favourite on football betting sites to become the next Plymouth manager.

It looks as though this job has passed him by, but he will remain on the shortlist for many clubs looking to fill their managerial vacancies this summer. 

The former midfielder spent much of his playing career in the lower reaches of the English pyramid, but his managerial career has gone from strength to strength.

Although he is yet to manage a club, he has been an assistant at Chelsea, Republic of Ireland, Belgium and Portugal.

Barry, 37, linked up with former Blues boss Thomas Tuchel again at Bayern Munich 12 months ago as a set-piece specialist.

On his appointment, Tuchel said: “As a top team, you need to be top at set-pieces. It’s an important area for us that we want to work on. His work with set pieces at Chelsea was on a completely new level for me.”

Still Remains Available

Will Still continues to be linked with every Championship vacancy and while Plymouth looks to be off the list, he will be given a chance in English football sooner rather than later.

The Belgian-born Englishman caused a stir with a 17-game unbeaten run in charge of Reims last season, although he parted company with the Ligue 1 club at the start of May.

The 31-year-old remains the favourite for the Sunderland job and is also in the running for the Norwich vacancy.
