Ole odds-on to leave Old Trafford next season

April 25th, 2019 Football, Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Press Release

Bookmakers now make Ole Gunnar Solskjaer odds-on not to be in charge of Manchester United by the end of next season.

The Norwegian was only appointed permanent manager in March, after impressing as interim-boss following the sacking of Jose Mourinho in December.

Solskjaer enjoyed a hugely impressive start to his Old Trafford managerial career, but their form has dropped of the cliff in recent weeks and they have now lost seven of their last nine games, and a top-four finish looks increasingly unlikely – meaning no Champions League football next season.

Now, Bookmakers can’t see him lasting a full season at Manchester United, and now following the most recently loss to neighbours Manchester City – he is now 10/11 to have left by the summer of 2020.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “Ole Gunnar is having a wretched time of it at the moment, a trophy-less season – their star name Paul Pogba wanting out, but just how long will Solskjaer last? Bookmakers are now odds on he leaves next season and it is 3/1 he is out by January 1st.

“The we are just past Easter and United are 11/2 to finish top-four tells us everything and perhaps it is not surprising that market on Solskajer’s successor are already underway and not surprisingly Tottenham chief Mauricio Pochettino is firm favourite at 11/4.”

Selected odds:

Manchester United to finish top-four – 11/2
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer NOT to be Man United manager on January 1st 2020 – 3/1
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer NOT to be Man United manager on opening day of next season – 10/1
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to leave Man Utd before the end of the 2019/20 season – 8/11
Ole Gunnar Solskjar to leave Man Utd before the first game of the 2019/20 season – 15/2

Next Manchester United manager:
Mauricio Pochettino 11/4
Massimiliano Allegri 7/1
Carlo Ancelotti 10/1
Antonio Conte 12/1
Diego Simeone 14/1
Gareth Southgate 14/1
