Next Sunderland Manager Betting Odds

It’s always a sad day when the Premier League says goodbye to one of its most charismatic managers, but unfortunately time has been called on Martin O’Neil’s time at the Stadium of Light, leading many punters to ask the question, what are the next Sunderland manager betting odds?

There are no doubt plenty of managers in contention or capable of talking the reigns, but if you sack O’Neil you better have some reasonable idea as to who will be taking place.

Mark Hughes and Mick McCarthy will no doubt be circling like vultures to take charge of this historic club, but we doubt either of those will be a certainty for the role.

The hot favourite will differ dependant on your bookie of choice but the list below will contain the contenders and the best odds from the candidates being considered for the vacant position. But one thing for certain is the job at hand should only be offered to someone who can not only cope with the pressure of a Premier League status, but the staunch support of its fans, who expect nothing less than to finish above bitter rivals Newcastle United and the stability of Premier League football season in and season out.

The contenders for the now vacant position can be found below, along with the best odds we could find.

Most bookies have Paolo Di Canio as favourite but we just can’t see the Black Cats supremo’s giving a manager of such little experience the opportunity to the reigns of such a prestigious club and the same goes for Gus Poyet. As impressive as their record is at the lower league they just don’t cut the mustard with us.

Our money is on a manger who has at least taken charge at the top level and has the style of play to take Sunderland to the next level. Of the candidates available we can’t see past Roberto Di Mateo for a better man for the job, not only will his experience in the league and European competition bode well, but his style of play will be a new and fresh approach to the fans who frequent the Stadium of light.
