Next Leeds manager odds: Mauricio Pochettino among early favourites after Jesse Marsch sacked


Mauricio Pochettino has been named the bookmakers’ second favourite for the vacant Leeds manager job after Jesse Marsch was sacked.

Out of work since leaving Paris Saint-Germain last year, the former Tottenham boss is still considered some way behind early frontrunner Carlos Corberan.

It is the ex-Leeds Under-23 manager who is leading the way despite only taking over at Championship club West Brom just over three months ago.

Another Elland Road old boy, Marcelo Bielsa, is sat third in the bookies’ estimates having recently turned down the Everton job.

It was under Bielsa whom Corberan became an integral part of the Leeds backroom staff, being promoted to first-team coach before a successful spell at Huddersfield.

Further down the odds list are Ange Postecoglou, Ralph Hasenhuttl and Rafa Benitez. Frank Lampard is among those considered outsiders in the hours after Marsch’s sacking.

Leeds find themselves outside of the relegation zone on goal difference alone following a 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest on Sunday, with back-to-back matches against Manchester United up next.
