England fans have largely been over the moon with the Three Lions’ progress under Gareth Southgate. Heartbreak at the 2018 World Cup when losing in the semi-finals was followed up by a penalty shootout defeat against Italy in the Euro 2020 final.

Even though most England supporters aren’t over that summer night at Wembley, the Three Lions have been much easier to get behind than in recent years.

However, following their quarter-final exit at the hands of France in Qatar, is this the end of the line for Southgate? This one feels like it’s coming to a head so here’s the latest odds on who’s near the top of the next England manager betting.


Graham Potter

Graham Potter

Chelsea boss Graham Potter has a fine reputation for his easy on the eye football, however, his Brighton side struggled to finish their chances so we’ll have to see how that translates with supposedly superior players at Stamford Bridge. He’s high in the betting but would be jump ship so soon after docking in Chelsea harbour?

Eddie Howe

Eddie Howe was linked with every job going before taking over at Newcastle at the back end of last year. The former Bournemouth boss has done a fine job at St James’ Park after spending £355m in the January transfer window. He looks pretty secure at the world’s richest club.

Mauricio Pochettino

How about a touch of South American flair? Mauricio Pochettino is looking for a job after PSG decided to throw their cash at someone else, and he’s plenty of experience of English football having impressed at Southampton and Spurs.

Steve Cooper

There’s no doubt Steve Cooper is under pressure to perform at Nottingham Forest after the Tricky Trees splurged £1.7bn on 3,428 new players in the summer. He has experience in the FA set up, just like Southgate did before he took the reins.

Thomas Tuchel

Thomas Tuchel is looking for a new job following his Chelsea sacking, with Potter replacing the German at Stamford Bridge.

It’s said he’s open to replacing Southgate as England manager and his CV is seriously impressive. Could it be a shrewd move by the FA?

Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard is in charge of Everton after behind sacked by his beloved Chelsea. Lampard couldn’t quite hack it at the top of the club game and international football might be more to his liking, after all, you can’t blow £200m on transfers in this sphere. Expect Mason Mount to become captain and start every game up front.

Steve Gerrard

Former Rangers and Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard had an impressive start to life as a manager, ending Celtic’s stranglehold on the Scottish Premiership in emphatic fashion. He struggled at Aston Villa though before getting the axe. He racked up 114 caps for the Three Lions and would surely jump at the chance to take the England job.
