Robbie Fowler cut from 25/1 into 6/4 favourite for next Birmingham City manager

Could the former Three Lions hero be the man for the job?

Ex-Liverpool hero, Robbie Fowler, has been cut into favourite to be named next Birmingham City manager.

A flurry of bets has resulted in Fowler’s odds tumbling from 25/1 into as short as 6/4 with Bet Victor, making him favourite. 

Sky Bet make Fowler joint-favourite for the job at 7/2, alongside Charlton boss Lee Bowyer.

Birmingham-born Lee Carsley is the bookies’ third favourite at 5/1, followed by Craig Gardner (7/1) and current Rangers manager, Steven Gerrard (7/1).

Former Brighton boss Chris Hughton is 8/1 in the betting, followed by Nigel Clough (8/1) and Mick McCarthy (10/1).

WhoScored.com revealed to Oddschecker that Birmingham are on the joint-longest current winless run in the Championship (9 games)

Only QPR (36) have conceded more home goals than Birmingham (35) in the Championship this season

No team has earned fewer home points than Birmingham (24) in the Championship this season.

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Birmingham City have endured yet another underwhelming season in the Championship, and with Pep Clotet heading out of the door, the Blues are without a boss.

"Robbie Fowler, who has only ever managed in Australia and Thailand, would certainly be a left-field appointment. However, should he return Birmingham to the promised land of the Premier League, the fans will not care one jot."

Next Birmingham City manager:
Robbie Fowler – 6/4
Lee Bowyer – 7/2
Lee Carsley – 5/1
Craig Gardner – 7/1
Steven Gerrard – 7/1
Chris Hughton – 8/1
Nigel Clough – 8/1
Mick McCarthy – 10/1
