Nottingham Forest’s Next Head Coach Betting Odds (December 11, 2023)
Nottingham Forest are very close to the relegation zone in the Premier League, as they are in bad form and have some tough fixtures coming up as well. There are rumors that Steve Cooper might get sacked soon, so who are the contenders to replace him? Julen Lopetegui is currently at the top of the favorites to get the job.
Steve Cooper Might not Survive the Sacking with Forest’s Bad Run
Steve Cooper is currently at the top of the Premier League sacking race favorites. Nottingham Forest have won only once in their last 12 matches, which puts them in 16th place in the EPL, only five points ahead of the relegation zone. The Forest will face Tottenham, Newcastle, Man United, and Arsenal in their coming six games, so it will be hard for Cooper to survive this tough run of fixtures.
Next Nottingham Forest Manager Odds
Here are the odds for which coach could replace Steve Cooper as the next Nottingham Forest manager:
- Julen Lopetegui @ 1.50 (1/2)
- William Still @ 7.0 (16/1)
- Patrick Vieira @ 13.0 (12/1)
- Graham Potter @ 17.0 (16/1)
- Ralph Hasenhuttl @ 17.0 (16/1)
Julen Lopetegui is the clear favorite to get the Forest job. He was very good with Wolverhampton last season, but he left them before it started because of the conflict with owners. The Spaniard has said that he is ready for a Premier League return, so there’s a good chance for him here, especially with owners who are ready to spend money on new players.
William Still is the current manager of Reims, and he has been great for them. He has never coached in the Premier League, so this could be a good opportunity for him to join the league. Patrick Vieira was managing Crystal Palace last season, but he got sacked due to the team being close to getting relegated. He is currently coaching Strasbourg, so it is unlikely that he will join Nottingham this season.
Graham Potter and Ralph Hasenhuttl both have big experience in the Premier League. Ralph hasn’t managed any team since leaving Southampton in 2022, while Potter is among the favorites to join many clubs, but it’s still unknown where he will land next.
