Gary Rowett And Martin O'Neill Head The Next Stoke Manager Betting Market
Stoke City's decline under Mark Hughes continued with a 2-1 defeat to League Two's Coventry City in the third round of the FA Cup and the Welshman paid the ultimate price as he was sacked by the board a few hours later. The club are hopeful of appointing the next Stoke manager this week and we have taken a look at the hopefuls...
Hughes left the Potters after four-and-a-half years in charge, during which he guided the team to three successive ninth-place finishes before a disappointing finish of 13th last season. However, a run of five defeats in seven Premier League outings, allied with the FA Cup humiliation at the hands of Coventry, ensures Stoke are looking for only their third manager since 2006...
Martin O'Neill is understood to be keen on the vacant role as he eyes a return to the Premier League after leaving Sunderland in 2013. The Northern Irishman has yet to sign a new contract with the Republic of Ireland and he does have a decent record at club level thanks to stints with Celtic, Leicester and Aston Villa.
O'Neill is a best price 3/1 favourite with Bet Victor.
Gary Rowett is the other man who has been strongly linked with the job at the bet 365 Stadium and the Derby County manager has built up an impressive reputation with Burton Albion and Birmingham City..
Rowett was harshly sacked by the Blues but he has enjoyed a fine campaign with Derby. However, would he want to leave a club that is on the verge of promotion - Derby are second in the Championship - to join a Stoke City side that are 18th in the Premier League?
Rowett is 5/1 for the Stoke job with Unibet.
Best Of The Rest
Slaven Bilic, who has been linked with the Australian national team job in recent days, is 11/1 after being sacked by West Ham in December, while Ronald Koeman (16/1) is expected to replace Dick Advocaat as manager of the Netherlands.
Elsewhere, Steve McClaren is 28/1 after missing out on the Sheffield Wednesday job and Graham Potter, who has enjoyed great success with Ostersunds FK in Sweden, is as big as 33/1 (Betfred) and as short as 7/1 to return to Stoke, who he actually played for in the 1990s.
