Southgate has been heavily criticised since he took over as England manager due to his tactics and style of play he implemented. In the Euro 2024, Southgate had lots of critics following his selection in the midfield, preferring Trent Alexander-Arnold over youngster Kobbie Mainoo who has proved to be an important player for Manchester United. 

Let’s take a look at the potential managers who could replace Southgate, based on the betting predictions and odds from Bet365; 

Graham Potter Next England Manager Odds – 1.5

Graham Potter, the former Chelsea and Brighton boss, is waiting for the right opportunity to rebuild his reputation after a difficult stint at Stamford Bridge. Known for his attractive style of play, he received plenty of praise for his work at Brighton, which made him popular with FA officials.

Potter’s managerial career began at Ostersund in Sweden, and he further cemented his reputation at Swansea and Brighton before joining Chelsea in September 2022 under new owner Todd Boehly. Despite high hopes, his tenure at Chelsea was marked by poor results (PL31 W12 D8 L11), leading to his departure in April 2023.

Had he succeeded in West London, the England job might have been a certainty for Potter. However, concerns about his ability to manage a squad full of highly paid stars have arisen, which might be considered if he is interviewed for the England position. 

Currently, Bet365 gives him 1.5 odds to replace Gareth Southgate.

Mauricio Pochettino Next England Manager Odds – 5

The Argentinian manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has had a career spanning five clubs since he first took charge of Spanish club Espanyol in 2009. He has managed Southampton, Tottenham, PSG, and most recently, Chelsea. 

Known for his tactical acumen and ability to develop young talent, Pochettino has built a reputation as a skilled manager in top European leagues.

Despite a challenging start at Chelsea in the recently concluded campaign, Pochettino managed to build a strong team that finished above Manchester United. However, he was unexpectedly sacked despite his efforts in transforming Chelsea into a competitive side for the upcoming season. 

As of now, Bet365 gives him 5 odds to replace Gareth Southgate as the England manager.

Eddie Howe Next England Manager Odds – 6 

Does Eddie Howe stand a chance to replace Southgate? Well, yes. The former Bournemouth and Burnley boss is currently managing Newcastle United, which is majority-owned by the Sovereign Wealth Fund of Saudi Arabia. Their vast resources have allowed Howe to recruit top talent, leading to a fourth-place finish in the EPL in 2023.
