Next Chelsea Manager Betting Posted in Blog on: 23/03/2012 By David Lenton

Bet On The Next Chelsea ManagerNext Chelsea manager betting is just starting to get interesting. The writing was on the wall for a long time before Andre Villas-Boas was sacked, and whether you agreed with it or not, the hunt is now on to fill one of the biggest jobs in football – the manager’s post at Chelsea. As with every large managerial opening, there have been loads of different names bandied around, but who will Mr Abramovich choose as his next puppet manager? If you’re planning to bet on the next Chelsea manager then check out the main candidates and their odds below.

Jose Mourinho Betting

As soon as the Chelsea managerial position opened up, it was inevitable that betting sites would start to predict the return of the prodigal son to Stamford Bridge. There are many things in Mourinho’s favour when it comes to next Chelsea manager betting, not least the fact that he has already stated that he wants to return to English football. He’s also just bought a house in London too – could this be a sign that he’s about to up sticks and move back to the capital? Chelsea will have competition though, as there are two other big teams in England who might be looking for a new manager in the summer, with these being their London rivals Tottenham and the nouveau-riche Manchester City. If you bet on the next Chelsea manager and opt for Jose Mourinho odds of 2.75 are available if you bet at

Roberto Di Matteo Betting

Fate works in mysterious ways. Last year Di Matteo was in charge of a woeful West Brom team and was eventually sacked, but now he is in charge of one of the richest teams in the world, albeit on a temporary basis. He is second favourite to still be in the role when the 2012/2013 season rolls around though, with Bet365 offering odds of 6.50 for this to happen. One possible tumbling block is the fact that there are already rumours that the players don’t like him, and the fate of AVB seems to have shown how important player power is within the Chelsea hierarchy. Probably not a great bet in our opinion if you’re going to bet on the next Chelsea manager.

Rafael Benitez Betting

Loved at Liverpool for years, could Benitez make his return to the UK by taking the managerial post at Chelsea? He certainly has the pedigree to run a club the size of Chelsea – after all, he has managed not just Liverpool, but Inter Milan and Valencia as well – which means that Abramovich could see him as the perfect man to steady a ship that many see as sinking. We think that the price of 7.0 in the next Chelsea manager betting market at Bet365 on Benitez is a really good one – he has no current club and would almost certainly welcome the chance to manage a top team again.

The Best of the Rest

All of the major names in the world of football seem to be involved in some way in the Chelsea managerial debate. Some other candidates mentioned are Pep Guardiola (10.0), Fabio Capello (15.0) and Louis van Gaal (15.0). If you are feeling particularly adventurous, you could go for a 51.0 outsider – Jurgen Klinsmann is there, who could be a great outside choice. The same could be said for Frank Rijkaard, who can be found at 34.0.
