Next Manchester United manager betting odds – Ryan Giggs 6/1 to replace Moyes

Giggs has matured as a player under the stewardship of Sir Alex Ferguson


Giggs among the favourites to become next United manager, with Louis van Gaal the current front runner

It appears that David Moyes has become a dead man walking at Old Trafford, with the Scot on borrowed time according to the latest reports which suggest that the Glazer family are ready to dispense with his services.

While many are surprised by the prospect of Moyes leaving, the powers-that-be are already considering who will be the new man in charge of the Red Devils, with the club set to miss out on European competition next term as they sit in seventh place.

Louis van Gaal is the favourite for the Tottenham Hotspur manager job although most firms have installed the Dutchman as the jolly for the United gig, with the 62-year-old having taking charge of Barcelona and Bayern Munich during his career to date.

Van Gaal is currently in charge of the Dutch national side although it is believed that he will be ready to return to club football following the 2014 World Cup, with a move to the Premier League looking increasingly likely.

Jurgen Klopp is a name who has been linked to lots of European clubs, although the Borussia Dortmund coach can be backed at 6/1 to replace Moyes at Manchester United, with the eccentric German having done wonders in the Bundesliga.

Diego Simeone is a 16/1 chance and the Atletico Madrid manager could steer his current team to an amazing La Liga and Champions League double, although Ryan Giggs is a good deal shorter at odds of 6/1.

Giggs has matured as a player under the stewardship of Sir Alex Ferguson and the Welshman looks set to become the caretaker boss when Moyes is removed from his position, although whether he will be considered as a permanent replacement is open to question.

Ferguson is as short as 7/1 to return to the helm although he has previously dismissed speculation that this will happen, with Pep Guardiola surely on to a good thing at Bayern Munich and we can rule out the Spaniard.
