Managerial Merry-Go-Round: Which ‘bosses could find new jobs’ in the coming months?




The January transfer window has come to an end, but there is still time for several managers to move on to different clubs this season.

Countless players have made their moves for differing reasons, and now it could be the turn of their bosses.

And there are certainly several clubs throughout Europe who will be considering a switch as they head into the latter stages of their respective campaigns.

But perhaps the most wanted manager out there is Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine has been without a job since being removed from his post at Tottenham Hotspur earlier this season.

He is looking likely to remain out of the game until the campaign finishes. But he will undoubtedly have numerous positions on offer in time for the new season later this year.

Skopje, FYROM – August 8,2017: Real Madrid coach Zinédine Zidane during the UEFA Super Cup Final match between Real Madrid and Manchester United at Philip II Arena in Skopje

The 47-year-old is seemingly in a strong position to take over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United. The Norwegian has come under huge pressure in recent months, with his side sitting seventh in the table.

United have just nine league wins to their name this season, and could look to the former Spurs boss to get them back on track. It’s currently 3/5 for Pochettino’s next job to be at Man Utd.

But their rival’s Manchester City have also been struggling of late. Those struggles have resulted in Pep Guardiola finding himself under pressure after failing to reach the standards that the club set last time out.

Pochettino is currently 4/1 to take over from the Spaniard at City.

He is also available at 6/1 to move to PSG next, and 8/1 to take over at Bayern Munich. It’s currently 9/1 for Real Madrid to bring in Pochettino, and 21/1 for AC Milan to appoint him.

But Madrid may look elsewhere if they are to replace Zinedine Zidane anytime soon. They sit top of La Liga, but the former midfielder still finds himself under pressure in the job.

It’s currently 7/1 for Massimiliano Allegri to take over from Zidane, and 10/1 for Leonardo Jardim to be their next manager.

Other candidates include Fernando Hierro at 20/1, and Jupp Heynckes at 33/1.

Their league rivals Valencia have also been linked with a new manager. It’s currently 11/2 for either Rafa Benitez or Miguel Grau to take over in the south of Spain.

Both Arsene Wenger and Leonardo Jardim are available at 10/1 to become the next Valencia boss.

Another side who could be involved in the managerial merry-go-round are Scottish champions Celtic. Former midfielder Neil Lennon is currently in charge, but Scotland national team manager Steve Clarke could return to club football at Celtic Park.

He is currently evens to be the next boss at the Glasgow side. Both Michael O’Neill and Paul Lambert are available at 10/1.
