Manchester United Manager Betting

Under the stewardship of Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United saw a return to their Matt Busby style glory days. However, since Fergie retired, the club's successes dried up, they lost their contender status and they dropped out of the Premier League top four. 

The Man United board have tried many things to get the club back on top of English and European football, from recruiting David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and then finally Jose Mourinho, to splashing millions of pounds worth of cash on players. 

There is still great Manchester United transfer news but rumours will start to escalate of yet another managerial change unless Mourinho stops the rot and guides the club toward a trophy. 

In the midst of a poor run, renowned bookmaker Paddy Power have already taken bets on who will succeed Mourinho as the next Manchester United.

Next Man United Manager Odds

Though Jose Mourinho has incredible pedigree as an elite-level manager, United seem to have inherited the Chelsea Part 2 Mourinho rather than the FC Porto or Inter Mourinho.

A number of elite-level managers dominate Paddy Power's list including Mauricio Pochettino, Diego Simeone, Luis Enrique, Carlo Ancelotti and Thomas Tuchel, as well as up-and-comers like Eddie Howe and even Ryan Giggs. 

For a full list of Manchester United manager odds see our table below, together with our up-to-date Man United manager betting advice.

How To Bet On The Next Man United Manager

Could Mauricio Pochettino succeed Mourinho in the next five years? (Getty)
United have enviously eyed a number of Tottenham Hotspur stand-outs in the modern era, from their signing of Dimitar Berbatov, to their flirtations with current Real Madrid hotshot Gareth Bale. 

Current Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is the 11/2 favourite to be next Manchester United manager and with good reason. He is a developer of youth talent, has an eye for high quality transfers and delivers results on the pitch. 

Further down the list of candidates, only Carlo Ancelotti at 14/1 looks to be a sensible pick while former players like Ryan Giggs or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be ones for the future.

Current Man United Manager 

Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho is widely considered one of the greatest and most successful club-level football managers in the world. At 53-years-old he already has a career's worth of honours having won national titles in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain. 

The Portuguese is also a two-time Champions League winner, a natural born coach, a student of the sport, a student of sports science and a significant presence in the dug-out thanks to his influential substitutions and tactical nous.

While rivals like Arsene Wenger attempt to coach the perfect passages of play, Mourinho does not mind sacrificing beautiful football providing effective football takes its place.

Arguably his greatest performance as a manager was at Inter where he completely nullified Barcelona in a Champions League game, a team who, at the time, were widely considered one of the greatest attacking sides ever. 

If that were the case, then Mourinho – it could be argued – was the most effective ‘defensive’ coach of all time.

Now at Manchester United, Mourinho has the chance to do what no man – not David Moyes and not Louis van Gaal – has done since Sir Alex Ferguson left… make United great again.

Club Status

One of the most historic clubs in England, Manchester United have won a record amount of league titles, have hosted some of the greatest players in world football in the Old Trafford locker room and are one of the most world renowned sporting brands on the planet.

The club have enjoyed some dominant periods in English football, including winning runs in the 1950s and 60s, as well as the 90s and 00s.

Additionally, they have either nurtured or bought some of the best footballers of all time including wing wizard George Best - arguably one of the first home-grown superstars - prolific hitman and Ballon d'Or winner Denis Law, eventual World Cup winner Bobby Charlton, all-action midfielder Bryan Robson, super shot-stopper Peter Schmeichel and general football phenom Cristiano Ronaldo.

United have two iconic managers oft brought up in the greatest manager of all time discussions, as Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson both helped mould United into the force it is today. 

The latest managerial incumbent at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho, will be hoping he is the third but will have to engineer a tremendous rebuilding project in order to realise such a lofty ambition.

That programme is already underway as the club have recruited top talents like Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. As a prolific title winner, Mourinho will ultimately be judged on the trophies he wins.

Owner and Manager Relationship

Mourinho has a chequered history when it comes to relations with the board and/or the owners. He infamously fell out with Roman Abramovich during his first spell with Chelsea and could divide the board-room with his antics – whether that is antagonising the press, infuriating rival managers, upsetting the FA or having to settle discrimination and constructive dismissal cases.

It is still very much a case of early days for Mourinho – but just how long will he be on his best behaviour? Can 'The Special One' play the corporate game and present himself in a way that is befitting of a company listed on the New York Stock Exchange? 

After all, we are only four to five months into Mourinho's first season in charge at Manchester United and he has already been served two separate suspensions. Can he risk a third without getting himself expelled?

Key Influences - who decides on the manager's future? 

The club owners are officially the Glazer family via Red Football Shareholder Limited, with co-chairmen being Avram Glazer and Joel Glazer. 

However, one suspects that power does get devolved with Executive vice chairman Ed Woodward. Club directors David Gill and Alex Ferguson will also likely have a clear say on the next Manchester United club manager.
