Frank Lampard Next Club Odds: Where next for the former Chelsea boss?

Frank Lampard Odds

Frank Lampard has been out of work since leaving Chelsea early in 2021 and rumours abound as to where the former England captain will end up, therefore now is a great time to register with any of our featured bookmaker partners and find the best Frank Lampard odds ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

 

Frank Lampard Next Club Odds

With Chelsea struggling at the time having won just two of their previous eight Premier League games, the board decided it was time to dispense with the services of manager Frank Lampard and he left the club on 25th January 2021 to be quickly replaced by current incumbent Thomas Tuchel. Since then Lampard has been without a club although has been linked with a handful of managerial vacancies.

 

Update: 03.09.21

 

We’re now into the international break and several under-fire Premier League managers have been given a brief reprieve as the top-flight campaign takes a break, however many bosses are feeling the pressure and the likelihood is that we will start to see some casualties in the weeks and months ahead. The likes of Mikel Arteta and Steve Bruce are in desperate need of wins and any managerial vacancies will be followed by much speculation regarding who will fill them. Indeed with former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard still in search of a new role, the bookmakers continue to link him with a move to several top-flight clubs.

 

England  –  12/1

The Three Lions cruised to a routine 4-0 win over Hungary in Budapest last night and having all-but-assured themselves of a place in next year’s World Cup, the likelihood of current head coach Gareth Southgate leaving any time soon is extremely remote. Nevertheless the bookies continue to link many names with the England job and while the likes of Dean Smith, Eddie Howe and Sean Dyche head the betting market, Frank Lampard is fourth-favourite to take the reins at general odds of 12/1, some bookies going as low as 8/1 that the former Blues boss ends up in the England dugout.

 

Newcastle United  –  16/1

Magpies boss Steve Bruce has generally been an unpopular figure on Tyneside and while he did manage to steer his charges clear of relegation towards the end of last season, the pressure is on him to start producing positive results. Newcastle have collected just a single point from their opening three Premier League games and the board will surely be growing impatient, therefore there is a distinct possibility that a vacancy may arise in the dugout soon. Lampard is as low as 17/2 to be offered the managerial position at St James’ Park in the event that Bruce is shown the door but most firms go 16/1 that he finds himself in the Newcastle dug-out.

 

Manchester United  –  25/1

Although there’s no real suggestion that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is going to leave Old Trafford any time soon – especially since he lifted the Red Devils to second position in the Premier League last season – this hasn’t prevented the bookies from pricing up a likely successor to the Norwegian. Many names are in the frame to take the reins at Old Trafford and while Lampard isn’t anywhere near to the top of the market, he is still a decent shout at 25/1.

 


 

18.08.21

The 2021/22 campaign is now well underway and in the Premier League, several managers are starting to feel the pressure, none more so than Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta. Indeed there has been plenty of movement on the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ betting market following the first round of league matches and the likes of Arteta and Newcastle United’s Steve Bruce are looking nervously over their shoulders. Any managerial vacancies which appear in the coming weeks will be followed by speculation as to who will fill them and with former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard having been out of work since leaving Stamford Bridge early this year, the bookies have linked him with several clubs.

 

Newcastle United  –  17/2

Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce managed to haul his side clear of relegation towards the end of last season thanks to some solid results at the closing end of the campaign, however the Magpies lost 2-4 to West Ham United in their opening match of the 2021/22 campaign and as such speculation is rife that Bruce will be next managerial casualty in the top-flight. Lampard is by no means favourite to replace him at St James’ Park – this particular accolade belongs to 6/4 shot Graeme Jones – but at just 17/2 he is nevertheless well up the market.

 

Southampton  –  17/2

Having finished a lowly 15th in the Premier League table last season and losing 3-1 against Everton in their season opener, Southampton boss Ralph Hassenhuttl is another man under pressure right now and he is one of the frontrunners in the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ betting market. In the event that Hassenhuttl is dismissed at St Mary’s Stadium, Frank Lampard is third favourite to replace him in the hot-seat behind Eddie Howe at 4/1 and Alan Pardew at 15/2.

 


 

Update: 04.08.21

The 2021/22 season is soon to get underway and as things stand, former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is still without a job. Will this situation change in the coming weeks?

Over the past couple of months, Frank Lampard has been linked with the then-vacant positions at Crystal Palace, West Bromwich Albion, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur, however all of these posts have now been filled and the likelihood is that the former Chelseas boss will remain without a club as the new campaign gets underway. Nevertheless once the action gets underway, there are a few short-priced contenders in the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ market and this could open up some opportunities for the 43-year-old.

 

Newcastle United  –  16/1

While some bookmakers go 16/1 that Frank Lampard ends up at St James’ Park, others go as low as 17/2. Indeed while there is little suggestion that Magpies boss Steve Bruce is moving to pastures new any time soon, he does remain one of the favourites in the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ betting market. Should Bruce leave Tyneside early in the new campaign, then Lampard will surely be one of the leading contenders.

 

England  –  12/1

As with Newcastle United’s Steve Bruce, there is currently no suggestion that England boss Gareth Southgate is going to quit or be sacked any time soon, especially since he took his Three Lions side to the final of the European Championships this summer. Indeed he is already making plans for next year’s World Cup and the likelihood of him quitting before then does seem rather remote. That hasn’t prevented the bookmakers pricing up some likely successors to Southgate however and Frank Lampard is a 12/1 shot with most firms.

 


 

Update: 28.07.21

Frank Lampard is still a man without a role and while he has been linked with numerous clubs in recent weeks, he is still searching for a suitable position. Such a post may well come his way once the new campaign gets underway and the bookies have been busy pricing up possible destinations for the former Chelsea boss.

 

Newcastle United  –  17/2

Steve Bruce managed to steer Newcastle United to safety towards the end of last season although the Magpies boss has never been a fan favourite since his arrival on Tyneside. Bruce is one of the favourites to be shown the door early in the new campaign and Frank Lampard is one of the favourites to replace him at St James’ Park.

 

England  –  8/1

Gareth Southgate came agonisingly close to lifting England to their first major international trophy since 1966 when the Three Lions made it through to the Euro 2020 Final earlier this month, however rumours continue to circulate regarding the future of the England manager. There is little suggestion that he is due to give way to someone else between now and the 2022 World Cup but a list of likely successors has nevertheless been drawn up with Frank Lampard as low as 8/1 to replace him in the England hot-seat.

 


 

Update: 16.07.21

Gareth Southgate has made massive strides with his England side by steering them to the semi-finals of the World Cup in 2016 and the final of the European Championships earlier this month in his five years in charge. Indeed his contract with the Three Lions runs until next year’s World Cup in Qatar and Frank Lampard is being seen in some quarters as a suitable replacement.

There can be little doubt that Southgate remains the man for the job but should there be a need for a change of manager after Qatar 2022 and Lampard is still available, then he would certainly be a leading contender. Indeed Lampard’s record with young players is very good given his achievements with Chelsea’s youngsters, while he worked wonders with his young charges at Derby County. As such, given what Frank has done in his first few managerial season’s, it’s not so fanciful predicting that he will be Southgate’s replacement.

Southgate hadn’t done anything as a club manager prior to his appointment by England and it could be argued that Lampard would do a superior job as Three Lions boss and get more out of his players than Southgate is managing.

As things stand, Dean Smith is being touted as the most likely successor to Southgate with most bookies going 5/1 that the Aston Villa boss takes charge while former AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is a general 7/1 shout. Sean Dyche is 8/1 to move from Burnley to the Three Lions while Frank Lampard is also as low as 8/1 to answer the call of the national side.

Over the past few weeks, Lampard has been linked (tentatively in some cases) with the then-vacant positions at West Bromwich Albion, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth, Celtic and England U21.

 


 

Update: 01.07.21

 

With Tottenham Hotspur and Everton already confirming new managers and Crystal Palace on the verge of announcing theirs, the options for former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard are thinning fast. Indeed with the start of the 2021/22 campaign fast approaching, Lampard’s choices appear limited to the national sides.

The former Derby County and Chelsea manager has been out of work since leaving Stamford Bridge in January 2021, however some are tipping him to be Gareth Southgate’s successor with the national senior side. The Three Lions are in Euro 2020 action right now and are looking forward to a quarter-final meeting with Ukraine in Rome this weekend, however should England bow out of the tournament at this stage, then Southgate may decide that the time is right to move on.

Should that be the case, then Frank Lampard is 12/1 to step in and help steer the Three Lions into the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. In this market he is third favourite behind Dean Smith at 7/1 and Eddie Howe at 9/1.

Lampard was linked with a move to Crystal Palace and he was as low as 5/6 odds-on to take the reins at Selhurst Park only a couple of weeks ago, however Patrick Vieira appears to be on the verge of being appointed at the time of writing. Similarly Lampard as linked with both Everton and Tottenham Hotspur but they too have appointed new managers in the form of Rafael Benitez and Nuno Espirito Santo respectively.

 


 

Update: 28.06.21

 

Crystal Palace  –  4/1

With former Borussia Dortmund boss Lucien Favre deciding against taking the reins at Selhurst Park this summer, Crystal Palace are once again scouring the marketplace for a new manager and while Steve Cooper is favourite to succeed recently-departed Roy Hodgson, former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is once again a genuine contender for the vacant hot-seat. Lampard has been out of work since departing Chelsea in January and many pundits believe that he would be the ideal candidate for the Eagles as they desperately look for a new man to take charge ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

 

England  –  8/1

England are preparing to face Germany at Wembley in the last sixteen of the European Championships and the future of current manager Gareth Southgate may depend on how far the Three Lions progress in the competition. Having been far from impressive in the group stages of Euro 2020, failure to make it past the Germans will pile the pressure on Southgate and already there are sections of the England support calling for him to be replaced after the tournament. The big question is, who would replace him? Current favourites are Dean Smith and Sean Dyche at 5/1 apiece while Eddie Howe is a general 7/1 shot. Frank Lampard can be backed to take charge of the national side at odds of between 8/1 and 12/1.

 

Everton  –  25/1

In all honesty, Rafael Benitez probably has this one in the bag although this fact certainly hasn’t gone down too well with Everton fans. There is no love lost between the Toffees faithful and the former Reds manager and protests outside the ground against his appointment are certain to have made the board think twice about taking him on. Nevertheless Benitez is nearly through the door at Goodison Park and odds of just 1/20 on his appointment make it look as though he is a shoo-in for the position. Nevertheless it isn’t a done deal as yet and Frank Lampard – although on the fringes of the market – remains a contender at odds as low as 25/1

 


 

Update: 25.06.21

Crystal Palace  –  7/1

Lucien Favre was expected to be announced as Crystal Palace’s next manager over the next couple of days, however the former Borussia Dortmund boss has decided to take time away from the game and this has thrown things wide open as the Eagles desperately search for a suitable replacement for Roy Hodgson. As things stand, Burnley boss Sean Dyche is market leader at odds of 3/1, however close behind is Frank Lampard who can be backed as low as 4/1 to take the reins at Selhurst Park this summer. Many names continue to be linked with the vacant position and these include the likes of Steve Cooper, Marco Silva and Eddie Howe, but the fact is that Palace need to make their decision soon and Lampard is undoubtedly seen as a leading contender.

 

England  –  12/1

England have made it through to the last sixteen of Euro 2020 having collected seven points from their three Group D games, however Gareth Southgate has been criticised for his tactics and it’s fair to say that not all sections of the England support have been impressed thus far. Indeed England have only found the net twice in the group stages of the tournament and failure to progress in the latter stages of the competition would certainly pile the pressure on Southgate. The bookies have been busy pricing up a likely successor should the current England boss be sacked and as things stand, Lampard is one of the favourites to replace him at odds as high as 12/1 and as low as 8/1.

 

Everton  –  33/1

Despite numerous supporter protests against such a move, Everton look set to appoint former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez as manager although as things stand this isn’t yet a done deal. The protests will likely continue and there are murmurings of disquiet amongst other board members, therefore there remains a distinct possibility that there might be a U-turn in this potential appointment. This would open the door to other candidates and while Frank Lampard isn’t one of the leading contenders, he is as low as 25/1 with some bookmakers. Generally the former Chelsea boss can be backed at 33/1 although in all honesty it would be something of a surprise were the Toffees to announce him as their new boss this summer.

 


 

Update: 23.06.21

 

Crystal Palace  –  7/1

As things stand, the most likely destination for Lampard this summer seems to be Selhurst Park, the former Chelsea boss a general 7/1 for the Crystal Palace job with some firms going as low as 5/2. This places Lampard firmly in the frame and he currently sits third in the market behind favourite Lucien Favre and Steve Cooper. Many names have been linked with the vacant position at Selhurst Park but time is fast running out and the Eagles will need to make a decision very soon.

 

Tottenham Hotspur  –  33/1

Graham Potter is firm favourite to take the reins at Tottenham Hotspur but it is by no means a done deal and many other names remain in the frame. At odds of 33/1. Frank Lampard is very much a rank outsider to be appointed in the hot-seat at White Hart Lane but with time fast running out before the start of pre-season training, Spurs need to make their decision fast. Lampard’s time at Chelsea would hold him in good stead for the Spurs job and while he’s on the fringe of the market right now, that doesn’t completely rule him out of contention.

 

Everton  –  33/1

Much to the utter dismay of Everton fans, former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez remains out-and-out favourite to take the reins at Goodison Park following the recent departure of Carlo Ancelotti, however as yet the Spaniard hasn’t been appointed in the role and Frank Lampard remains a contender for the position at general odds of 33/1. Indeed some firms go as low as 25/1 that the former Chelsea boss takes charge on Merseyside this summer.

 


 

Update: 17.06.21

Crystal Palace  –  8/1

Crystal Palace are still searching for a suitable replacement for recently-departed Roy Hodgson who vacated his position at the end of last season, however while former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was as low as 5/6 to take the reins this summer only a few days ago, his odds have since drifted significantly and he is now on the fringe of the market at a general 8/1. Many names have been linked with the Selhurst Park post and as things stand favourite to take charge is former Borussia Dortmund gaffer Lucien Favre, however much can change as the search continues and Lampard isn’t completely out of the running just yet.

 

West Bromwich Albion  –  12/1

Having been out of work for many months, Lampard certainly hasn’t ruled out a move to the Championship and with West Bromwich Albion still searching for a suitable replacement for Sam Allardyce, the possibility remains that the former Chelsea boss could end up at the Hawthorns. Having been as low as 7/2 less than a couple of weeks ago, Lampard is now out to as much as 12/1 to be appointed by the West Midlands club but he nevertheless remains a distinct possibility as things stand.

 

England  –  12/1

While Frank Lampard remains one of many names linked with the England U21 side, he is also one of the favourites to be the next manager of the senior national side. Indeed should the Three Lions fail to make the grade in the European Championships, then there is a possibility that Gareth Southgate may decide to make way for someone else and Lampard is currently 12/1 to fill his shoes.

 

England U21  –  20/1

Just days after linking him with a move to Everton, Lee Carsley looks set to take charge of the England U21 side with most firms going 1/6 that he is appointed in the next few days. Frank Lampard remains an outside contender at odds of 20/1 but the likelihood is that this is now a done deal.

 

Everton  –  33/1

It is starting to look as though Everton may be seriously considering appointing former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez as next manager of the club and while this hasn’t gone down too well with sections of the Toffees support, there can be little doubt that he would bring plenty of experience with him. Frank Lampard isn’t one of the main contenders for the vacant Goodison Park hot-seat but he is hanging in there in the betting market and can be backed at 33/1, some bookies going as low as 25/1 that he is appointed in the position.

 


 

03.06.21

Crystal Palace  –  5/6

Crystal Palace have been manager-less since Roy Hodgson left at the end of the season and several names have been linked with the vacant position at Selhurst Park, amongst these Lampard who is odds-on to take the reins at a side which finished 14th in the Premier League table last season.

 

England U21  –  2/1

The search is on to find a new man to take charge of the England U21 side and while Sol Campbell was favourite to take the reins only a couple of weeks ago, it appears that he is now out of the running. Frank Lampard has instead emerged as one of the leading contenders with many bookies going just 2/1 that he ends up in the hot-seat.

 

West Bromwich Albion  –  7/2

With West Bromwich Albion having been relegated at the end of the 2020/21 campaign, manager Sam Allardyce announced that he would step down at the end of the season. As such the hunt is now on for a suitable replacement at the Hawthorns and rumours abound that Frank Lampard could be the man for the job, the bookies going a general 7/2 that he lands the role at the West Midlands club.

 

Bournemouth  –  5/1

AFC Bournemouth fell short of promotion back to the Premier League at the end of 2020/21, the Cherries losing to eventual play-off winners Brentford at the semi-final stage of the Championship play-offs. Following this disappointment and despite the fact that he was recently named as ‘Manager of the Month’, boss Jonathan Woodgate is tipped to be replaced during the summer and one of the leading contenders to replace him is Frank Lampard at odds of 5/1.

 

Celtic  –  9/1

Celtic are struggling to find a suitable replacement for Neil Lennon who left last season.The Hoops were second best to Rangers throughout 2020/21 and they will be desperate to put up a better fight next term, however their difficulty in finding a new boss is causing some concern. Ange Postecoglou is huge favourite to take the reins but lack of a Pro License is holding things up and the club may need to look elsewhere. Lampard remains a possibility for the position and he is currently on the fringes of the market at odds of 9/1.
