Next Aston Villa Manager – Betting Odds, Tips and Prediction

Bob BradleyAston Villa Manager Martin O’Neil resigned from his post today, after amid rumours of a rift with American owner Randy Lerner. Not a total surprise to Bonus Riders, who tipped him to be the first manager to go just 3 days ago, and we hope you managed to get a piece of action on Martin O’Neil at odds 10.

But who will replace him? We have looked at the options and found the best betting opportunities and tips on his successor.

Bob Bradley; traded at odds 4.5-5.5 at Betfair
Bob Bradley is the stand out favourite for the job. He was closely linked with the Fulham job and has done a good job at the international level with the USA. With his contract nearly up, he would also be cheap, while his nationality should also be considered a tremendous benefit considering the owner.

Sven Goran Eriksson; traded at odds 8-9 at Betfair
Sven has already announced his interest for the job, and he will do a reasonable job, if he gets it. He would surely be competent successor, but his huge wage demands could be a possible deal breaker. At the same it will be interesting to see, how he will fare without big budget to spend. Currently he is bookies second favourite, although he has not impressed since leaving the English job.

Gareth Southgate; traded at odds 12-13 at Betfair
Well, likely not the fans choice with his managerial record, which include relegation from the Premier League with Middlesbrough and then a sacking after a pathetic promotion attempt. Although we are confident this will not happen again, it is interesting to note, that his odds has been moving up and down all day due to people speculating.

Jurgen Klinsmann; traded at odds 14-15 at Betfair
He does have quality to his name, but his managerial experience only include a successful two year reign with the German national team and a dreadful spell at Bayern Munich. It would likely be a long shoot and properly not Aston Villa’s first choice.

Other candidates;
Slaven Bilic – traded at odds 15-16 at Betfair
Kevin Macdonald – traded at odds 16-17 at Betfair
Alan Curbishley – traded at odds 16-17 at Betfair

Our prediction for the Aston Villa successor
We Predict Bob Bradley at around odds 4.5-5.5 at Betfair.

The American nationality will be a deciding for Bob Bradley, as he will likely be owner Randy Lerner’s top candidate for the job.
