Next Sheffield Wednesday Manager Odds: Who next to take charge at Hillsborough?

Sheffield Wednesday Odds

Sheffield Wednesday are still searching for a new manager following the sacking of Tony Pulis late last year, therefore now is a great time to get your hands on all the very best Sheffield Wednesday odds and free bets courtesy of our featured bookmaker partners.


Update: 13.01.21

According to reports, unemployed Paul Cook has applied to become manager of Sheffield Wednesday and the bookmakers have responded to this news by making him huge odds-on favourite at 4/6. The 53-year-old is eager to return to management and with Wednesday having been without a permanent manager since the sacking of Tony Pulis, Cook would certainlyseem to be the perfect candidate.

Cook hasn’t been working since resigning from Wigan Athletic at the close of last season and despite interim Owls boss Neil Thompson enjoying an unbeaten start at Hillsborough, the ex Portsmouth man is very much the frontrunner to take the reins.

Roy Keane is another contender for the vacant position with the bookies going 4/1 on the former Manchester United favourite taking charge. Keane has made no secret of his desire to make a return to management, however he has remained tight-lipped about the possibility of him moving to Hillsborough at any time in the near future.

The bookmakers have Chris Coleman priced as third-favourite in the market at odds of 6/1 while interim boss Neil Thompson is a 12/1 punt to be appointed in the role on a permanent basis. Former favourite Joey Barton is now way out at 20/1.

Following his surprise sacking by Fleetwood Town on Monday, Joey Barton has been installed as favourite to take over at Sheffield Wednesday, the Owls having dispensed with the services of Tony Pulis late in 2020. Barton had been in charge of the Lancashire outfit for two and a half years, however a dressing room bust-up with players proved to be the catalyst for his departure.

Barton guided Fleetwood into the League One play-offs at the end of last season and it really isn’t a shock to see him being linked with the vacant position at Hillsborough, however while he was Evens to take charge just 24 hours ago, his price has since drifted to 4/1.

Sheffield Wednesday have boosted their survival chances in recent weeks with some impressive wins – most recently over Derby County – and on the back of this they have managed to haul themselves out of the bottom three in the Championship.

Former Wigan boss Paul Cook had previously been favourite to take charge of the Owls, however his odds have drifted to 5/1, making him joint second-favourite in the market alongside Vladimir Ivic at the same odds.

In fairness, this is a market that seems to have a new favourite every day or so and following the disastrous appointment of Tony Pulis as manager and his subsequent departure after just 45 days, who knows where the South Yorkshire side are planning to go next.
