Brazil is now 6/1 to become the next manager of Nottingham Forest after Mark Warburton was sacked at the end of 2017
Gary Brazil insists he’s taking charge of the Nottingham Forest on a game-to-game basis, although the caretaker boss surely stands a decent chance of becoming the permanent manager after an exciting 4-2 FA Cup win over Arsenal.
Brazil is now 6/1 with BetVictor to replace Mark Warburton, with Aitor Karanka remaining the favourite for the role although the Spaniard has drifted out to 11/8 after previously being odds-on.
Paul Heckingbottom is a 5/2 chance to take charge at the City Ground although he remains put at Barnsley for now and it’s possible that Brazil will be promoted from within and hope to build on that excellent victory against the Gunners.
Nigel Clough is now a 14/1 poke and looks happy at Burton, with Gus Poyet at 16/1 although potential new managers will be wary at how little time previous Nottingham Forest managers have been given.
Aitor Karanka remains 4/7 favourite to replace Mark Warburton at the City Ground, with Nottingham Forest going into Sunday’s FA Cup clash against Arsenal without a permanent manager although the Spaniard is still in pole position for the role.
Paul Heckingbottom has now come as short as 2/1 to leave Barnsley and take charge of Forest, although the manager has previously been linked to vacant positions and always stayed put at Oakwell.
Nigel Clough is now a 4/1 poke, with Oscar Garcia available at 5/1 and Paul Clement has now become 7/1 after recently being sacked at Swansea.
It appears as though Aitor Karanka could become the next manager of Nottingham Forest, with BetVictor now going 4/7 about the Spaniard replacing Mark Warburton at the City Ground.
Karanka has been out of work since leaving Middlesbrough last season although he might fancy the prospect of returning to the Championship and attempting to resurrect the fortunes of the Tricky Trees.
There has been money for Paul Heckingbottom who is a 3/1 chance to leave his Barnsley post and take charge of Nottingham Forest, while Oscar Garcia and Nigel Clough are 6/1 pokes.
Nottingham Forest Next Manager Odds – Updated Sun 31 Dec 2017
Aitor Karanka is the 7/4 favourite to become the next manager of Nottingham Forest, with the Midlands club having sacked Mark Warburton as the Tricky Trees slide down the Championship table.
Forest are fourteenth in the table after losing 1-0 at home to Sunderland on Saturday, with Karanka now 7/4 jolly to become the next boss and the Spaniard has a decent track record which includes getting Middlesbrough promoted.
Paul Heckingbottom is a 6/1 chance to leave Barnsley for the City Ground and has previously been linked to this position, with Nigel Clough also available at 6/1 although he has turned down the vacant post before and might want to continue with Burton Albion.
Aitor Karanka: 7/4
Oscar Garcia: 6/1
Paul Heckingbottom: 6/1
Gus Poyet: 6/1
Roy Keane: 8/1
Nigel Clough: 10/1
Martin O’Neill: 12/1
Gary Brazil: 20/1
Nigel Pearson: 25/1
There are likely to be no shortage of applications for the vacant position and Paul Heckingbottom is 6/1 with William Hill and Bet Victor, with the Barnsley manager potentially about to leave Oakwell and take charge of Forest.
Gary Brazil is a 20/1 chance with Bet Victor and he is currently in caretaker charge of the Forest squad, with the Midlands club potentially giving him the reins until the end of the season.
Nigel Pearson is a 25/1 poke with Bet Victor but might baulk at the prospect of managing a team who have just sold Henri Lansbury to Aston Villa, with Forest very much becoming a selling club at the moment which will not appease their supporters.
Nigel Clough is a 10/1 chance although the fiery Scot has already had two stints at the City Ground, while Clough is in charge of Burton Albion and it’s unlikely that he’d be interested in leaving for Forest.
