Next Sunderland Manager Odds: Shock name battling Frank Lampard in the betting

Frank Lampard is the favourite to take over as Sunderland manager but there is a shock name rivalling him in the betting.

The market for the next Sunderland manager has been hotting up this week, with a surprise new candidate emerging as one of the leading candidates in the betting.

It’s now been well over 100 days since interim boss Mike Dodd was put in charge after Michael Beale’s departure from the club in February of this year.

Will Still was a name being talked about to take the job at Sunderland, but he was appointed as manager of French side Lens, which has led to a new batch of names being tipped instead.

Two names in particular have been speculated on recently, and their odds of becoming the new Black Cats manager have shortened.

Who is the Favourite to be the Next Sunderland Manager?

Chelsea legend and former Everton manager Frank Lampard has emerged as the new favourite to take over at Sunderland.

Lampard’s most recent managerial role came when he took over on an interim basis at Chelsea in April 2023, and won just one of his 11 games in charge with a win percentage of just 9%.

He fared much better at Chelsea as their permanent manager between July 2019 and January 2021, having won 44 of his 84 games in charge.

The highlight of his time at Everton was keeping them up after narrowly avoiding relegation at the end of the 2021/22 season, but was sacked midway through the following season.

Another name being tipped is Didier Digard, the former Nice caretaker manager between January and June 2023. The 37-year-old lacks managerial experience, but impressed during his short stint at the French club, guiding them to a 5th placed finish.

Lampard can be found at 3/1 to take over at Sunderland with Sky Bet, while Digard’s best odds are 6/1 with BetVictor.

Another name on the list of potential Sunderland managerial candidates is former Hull boss Liam Rosenior. 

Hull narrowly missed out on the playoffs last season with Rosenior at the helm, which ultimately led to his sacking following the conclusion of the 2023/24 season. 

He is now, though, looking for a new challenge, and is best priced at 10/1 with Sky Bet to become the next Sunderland manager.
