Gerrard is bet365’s favourite to take Leeds United job

Leeds United have officially announced the departure of Sam Allardyce following the team’s relegation to the Championship.

Allardyce, who previously managed Bolton and West Ham, assumed temporary charge for the final four matches of the season but couldn’t prevent the Whites from dropping out of the top flight.

According to Bet 365, Steven Gerrard, the former manager of Rangers and Aston Villa, is the early favourite at 5/2 to fill the vacant managerial position at Leeds United.

Gerrard has been without a club since his departure from Villa Park in October 2022.

Carlos Corberan, Marcelo Bielsa’s former assistant and the manager who led Huddersfield Town to the play-offs in the 2021/22 season, is the second favourite at 10/3. Brendan Rodgers, the former Leicester City boss, is currently seen as an outsider with odds of 5/1 to take over at Elland Road.

The club has stated that an announcement regarding the next head coach will be made “in the coming weeks.”

This decision comes amidst uncertainty surrounding the club’s ownership, as Andrea Radrizzani remains the majority shareholder despite his interest in Italian side Sampdoria and ongoing discussions with 49ers Enterprises regarding a potential takeover of Leeds United.
