Bookies Include Brendan Rodgers in Manchester United Manager Betting

Bookies have included Brendan Rodgers in their odds for Manchester United‘s next manager.

Jose Mourinho was this morning sacked by the Old Trafford club days after his side lost 3-1 to Liverpool at Anfield.

And now attention will be turned to who replaces him on a caretaker basis and permanently.

Per the manutd.com statement, a caretaker boss will take charge until the end of the season before a full-time manager is appointed.

So that’s led to Michael Carrick – one of Mourinho’s coaches – being included in the betting for the next United boss.

But it’s top managers like Zinedine Zidane and Antonio Conte who lead the way, with others like Rodgers included too.

The Celtic manager would definitely be a surprising choice if he were to interest United – not because of his work at the Hoops, but his three years spent managing United’s rivals Liverpool.

So you might want to ignore him being listed as short as 16/1 with some bookmakers.

It’s inevitable that Rodgers will leave Celtic at some point in the future, but we’d be very surprised if it ended up being United he goes to.
