• Poyet is favourite for the job
• Giggs would be huge for Welsh fans
• Bergkamp is also considered
Chairman Huw Jenkins thought to be preparing for a surprise call, so you should totally have a look at the best next Swansea manager odds!
After Garry Monk was relieved from his duties at Swansea recently, for many, Brendan Rodgers became the obvious candidate for the job at the Welsh club. However, online sportsbooks in the UK expect former Uruguayan international Gus Poyet to take over the Swans in the near future. Have a look at the next Swansea manager odds provided by top UK sportsbook BetVictor!
Gus Poyet next Swansea manager odds
Gustavo Poyet was close to become Swansea manager in 2010, but the job went to Brendan Rodgers instead, and the rest is kind of history. Chairman Huw Jenkins is an admirer of Poyet, and it is no surprise that the Uruguayan is the top candidate for the job. However, Jenkins is known to pick his managers carefully, and he might rethink his options before identifying his favourite.
Poyet had a successful playing career at Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. He previously managed Sunderland, but was fired in March after a series of poor performances from his side. He currently works for Greek side AEK Athens, leading the Superleague Greece.
BetVictor has the best price for Poyet around the internet amongst next Swansea manager odds with 3.00 (2/1).
Ryan Giggs next Swansea manager odds
The finest football player Wales has ever produced is currently assisting for Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford. According to the plans of the Dutch manager, Ryan Giggs could take over Manchester United after he left. However, Giggs’ next Swansea manager odds were shortened after news emerged from Liberty Stadium that the most decorated player in Premier League history could be the Swans’ new gaffer.
Jenkins has a history of hiring young managers with a great potential like he did with Roberto Martinez, Rodgers or Monk. It would be interesting if he would be appointed soon after Gary Neville became the manager of Spanish La Liga side Valencia.
Though BetVictor has slashed his next Swansea manager odds to 6.00 (5/1), it is still tempting to place a wager on him.
Avram Grant next Swansea manager odds
It appeared in UK gambling news that the former Chelsea, Portsmouth and West Ham United manager is amongst the candidates for the job at Liberty Stadium. Avram Grant currently is in charge of the Ghana national team. He reached the Africa Cup of Nations final earlier this year with the Black Stars, only to go down on penalties against Ivory Coast.
Grant has a considerable experience in English football and he also led Chelsea to the Champions League final in 2008, where he also lost on penalties against Manchester United. It is understood that the Swansea board is interested in hiring Grant, and BetVictor has the best internet betting offer for his appointment.
The Avram Grant next Swansea manager odds are currently at 9.00 (8/1), so it could be worthy to wager on the Israeli manager before a shortening in his odds would occur.
Dennis Bergkamp next Swansea manager odds
The Arsenal legend is also amongst the favorites according to next Swansea manager odds. Dennis Bergkamp is another young coach with a great potential. The 46-year-old has been working as the assistant of Frank de Boer at Ajax since 2011. The problem with him, as with Giggs, is that he has yet to gain managerial experience. Both of them are former Premier League superstars however and this experience could be vital.
Bergkamp has the same next Swansea manager odds as Grant, he is also available for 9.00 (8/1).
More next Swansea manager odds
David Moyes (13.00) and Roberto di Matteo (15.00) are reportedly also being considered for the job. The same goes for Unai Emery and Nigel Pearson, who have the greater next Swansea manager odds at BetVictor, with both of them being available at 17.00 (16/1).
The same odds go for former Swansea and Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, who is reportedly not considered for the job. According to other sources, the Northern Irishman ruled out the possibility of taking over his former team himself. Colin Pascoe, Rodgers’ No. 2 at Swansea and at Liverpool also has the same odds.
Mark Warburton (26.00), Paco Jemez, Frank de Boer and even Marcelo Bielsa are all in the mix (all 34.00) amongst others. Former Arsenal manager George Graham expects a surprise move from Jenkins, so it could be reasonable to throw some money on candidates with greater odds. Currently first team coach Alan Curtis is in charge of the team, but the board is expected to announce the new manager before the packed Christmas schedule.
