Next manager sacked odds: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer favourite to leave next

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the new clear favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave, following Manchester United’s exit from the Champions League.

In the last 24 hours, odds have been cut from 9/1 into 2/1 that the Norwegian is given his P45 before any other boss in the league. 

Since the defeat to RB Leipzig, a whopping 44% of all bets in the market have backed Solskjaer to be the first Prem boss gone.

 

Chris Wilder and Slaven Bilic still short in the market

That means he’s leapfrogged former favourite Chris Wilder, who has been pushed out to 11/4 best price with two firms.

Baggies boss Slaven Bilic is the third favourite in the market, followed by under-fire Gunners manager Mikel Arteta (6/1) and Scott Parker (15/2).

Leading football stats site, WhoScored.com, revealed that Solskjaer has suffered defeat in six of his first 10 Champions League matches as head coach. 

That’s the worst return of any manager in charge of an English club at that milestone.  

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “For what feels like the hundredth time, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is favourite to be the first Premier League manager sacked. 

“The debates will continue to rumble on over the Norwegian’s credentials, but a season without any Champions League knockout football won’t please the Old Trafford faithful.” 

Next manager sacked odds:

  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - 2/1
  • Chris Wilder - 11/4
  • Slaven Bilic - 6/1
  • Scott Parker - 15/2
  • Steve Bruce - 10/1
