With Fulham manager Scott Parker leaving the club soon, a replacement will be urgently needed. A host of big names are leading at the next Fulham manager odds. But, five candidates stand out as the massive favorites.
Fulham was recently relegated from the Premier League. As a result, the 40-year-old manager Scott Parker decided to move to Bournemouth with a mutual termination of his contract. It will all be finalized when Bournemouth head coach Jonathan Woodgate’s contract officially expires on 01 July. So, the Fulham hierarchy is already thought to be looking at potential replacements.
According to online sportsbooks in the United Kingdom, the new Championship season will get underway on 07 August. In other words, Fulham have one month to find a proper replacement. Here are the leading candidates as per the next Fulham manager odds.
Wilder is a specialist in winning promotions
The former Sheffield United manager is rated among the runners and riders for almost every Championship job. It is only a matter of time before Wilder decides what new journey to take. His next employer will most likely be a Championship club as he is popular for winning promotions.
According to BetVictor, Wilder is featured among the top candidates at the next Fulham manager odds with a 5 value. Not only because he is a specialist in winning promotions but also the fans seem to be excited about him coming to Fulham.
Eddie Howe will likely receive an offer
The former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has a lot of support in the Fulham hierarchy. He is famed on the south coast for taking Bournemouth from League Two all the way to the Premier League in the space of five years. Bournemouth then were relegated and Howe left last summer.
Recently Howe was closely linked to Celtic before he pulled out at the last second. As one of the nation’s best young managers, he will likely get a new offer very soon. It might come from Fulham according to online sportsbooks in the United Kingdom. If that happens, his odds are at 9 to become Fulham’s new manager.
Vieira is keen to get back to work
The former Arsenal and France star Patrick Vieira has been out of work since leaving Ligue 1 side Nice in December. However, he lately stated that he is keen to get back to work as a manager, according to football.london. It is unclear why Fulham would bring Vieira in but his odds value 13.
Henry will be jobless after Euro 2020
Henry recently rejoined the Belgian national team with the aim to win Euro 2020. He is a part of Roberto Martinez’s coaching staff. It happened just a few months after he stepped down from coaching Major League soccer team CF Montreal for personal reasons. After Euro 2020 Henry will be jobless again. So, there is potential for Henry to look for a new journey with 15 odds to take over Fulham.
Neil has plenty of Championship experience
Alex Neil has plenty of Championship experience on his resume following spells at Norwich and Preston. But he is very close to signing with West Brom. Should that deal fail, his next Fulham manager odds are 13.
