Next Leicester Manager Odds: Corberan and Moyes in the running


Carlos Corberan is the early favourite to take the job at Leicester City ahead of Enzo Maresca’s proposed move to Chelsea this summer.

The West Brom boss could be in line for a promotion to the Premier League despite seeing his side come up short in the Championship play-offs, after shooting to the top of the odds market with online bookmakers.

Graham Potter and David Moyes are also believed to be in the early running for the move to succeed Maresca who is expected to move to Chelsea despite leading Leicester to promotion at the first time of asking with 97 points.

Here is a look at the latest football betting markets and betting offers for the Leicester manager’s job.

Leading Candidates to be the Next Leicester Manager

Let’s look at some of the names towards the head of the betting market.

Carlos Corberan

Corberan has steadily built himself a reputation as one of the most dependable managers in the Championship, having led a mediocre Huddersfield team into the play-off final before ninth and fifth-placed finishes with West Brom - the second of which saw them lose in this year’s play-off semi-finals to Southampton.

He previously spent three years at Leeds working under Marcelo Bielsa and was popular with the club’s support, leading to regular links to the Elland Road job ever since departing the club for Huddersfield. A brief stay at Olympiacos didn’t go to plan but he remains a dependable name in the English second tier, even if there have been accusations about a less-than-attractive style of play. However he could prove to be an effective replacement for Maresca, with a patient build-up approach and defensive structure high on his list of priorities as a manager.

Graham Potter

It surely can’t be long before we see Potter back in the Premier League? Only two seasons ago he looked like he was going to be the next big thing in British coaching, only for a difficult spell with Chelsea to bring a complete halt to that, and he hasn’t been in work for about 15 months.

For someone who is known to be a student of the game, it would be no surprise if Potter has used this time wisely with a return this summer targeted, and he will have no shortage of suitors if he is ready to return. He has been linked to several big jobs over the past year and particularly since the end of the season, so it just looks to be a case of who will fit him best. He is believed to be well in the running for a return to Brighton but he might just want to see what Gareth Southgate’s next move is after Euro 2024.

David Moyes

You know what you’re going to get with Moyes. Reliable, rugged and committed, his sides have more often than not been effective in the Premier League - but that doesn’t mean he would be a popular appointment.

Some believe he has been harshly treated by West Ham - and it is true that winning a European trophy as well as two top-half finishes deserve a lot of credit - but in a day and age where style of play and tactics are so closely analysed, it is no surprise that Hammers supporters never really took to him. Going for Moyes could hardly be seen as a bad move, but it would probably be a slightly disappointing one for fans and to be honest, it just doesn’t feel like a natural fit.

Steve Cooper

Cooper’s stock has never been higher having achieved miracles with Nottingham Forest in taking them to the Premier League and then keeping them up while contending with a slightly eccentric owner and a complete turnover of his squad. He remains hugely popular with the supporters despite his dismissal in the season just past, and he should have no difficulty finding another job.

However he did favour a slightly more pragmatic style of play with Forest, and considering Leicester have just had a Pep Guardiola acolyte, it doesn’t seem a natural succession. A job at the top end of the Championship feels like a more natural fit for Cooper right now, but he is another good coach and with the Foxes likely to get a big points deduction, could be a smart long-term appointment.

Roberto De Zerbi

Money is tight at the King Power considering the sanctions they are likely to be hit with for their finances, so De Zerbi might be slightly out of their reach this summer given he is likely to be one of the most in-demand managers on the market.

That said, having immediately shot to the top of the markets for jobs such as Chelsea, Manchester United and Bayern Munich after leaving Brighton at the end of the season, he has seen his name drop down the pecking order over the past week and it remains unclear where his next move will be. Given the job he did at brighten, he would be a hugely ambitious appointment for Leicester but he is likely to have his sights set much higher.
