Next Norwich Manager Odds: Who are the four contenders to replace David Wagner?

There are four realistic contenders to replace David Wagner according to the latest next Norwich manager odds.

David Wagner was sacked as Norwich manager less than 24 hours after their 4-0 second-leg loss to Leeds in the Championship playoffs which consigned the Canaries to a third successive season in the second tier of English football.

That was despite a strong second half to the season, as they recovered from 17th in November with a run featuring eight straight home wins to finish sixth.

His team were still in the fight after a goalless first leg draw at Carrow Road but were blown away in the second leg at Elland Road, leaving Leeds to contest the Championship playoff final against Southampton on Sunday.

Who is the favourite for Norwich City manager?

Johannes Hoff Thorup is the bookmakers' favourite to replace David Wagner at a best price of 15/8 on Sky Bet (implied 35% chance).

The FC Nordsjaelland coach was as long as 16/1 on Tuesday but has been backed in heavily over the last 48 hours.

His team were only four points off winning their first Danish Superliga since 2011/12 last season, while they will finish either 3rd or 4th this season depending on the final day results on Saturday.

Second in the market is Liam Rosenior (2/1), sacked by Championship side Hull earlier this month having missed out on the playoffs on the final day by just three points.

Rosenior was reportedly sacked over a difference of opinion on the team's style of football, having only signed a new three-year contract in December 2023 to keep him at the club until 2026.

William Still comes third in the betting (4/1 BetVictor) according to the best prices available through oddschecker. Still had been a frontrunner to replace Rosenior as Hull manager, who now appear set to appoint German coach Tim Walter (1/5 favourite).

Still left Reims with immediate effect after the club's 11th-place finish in Ligue 1.

The fourth and final contender with a single digit price to replace David Wagner is Carlos Cuesta (best price 6/1), Arsenal’s assistant manager for the last four years.

He is also well known to Norwich's sporting director Ben Knapper, who joined the club in November after 13 years in various roles with the Gunenrs including analysis, scouting and football operations.
