Next England manager: Sean Dyche favourite to succeed Gareth Southgate with Jose Mourinho at 20/1

SEAN DYCHE has emerged as the shock favourite to be the next England manager when Gareth Southgate leaves his role.

There is nothing to suggest Southgate will leave his role anytime soon but Burnley boss Dyche is the bookies' front runner at this stage.


Betfair have Dyche at 4/1 and he is leading the market by some distance.

Brighton boss Graham Potter and former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe are joint second favourites at 7/1.

It appears as though the bookies expect the FA to continue with an Englishman as manager once Southgate leaves his position.

With former England internationals Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard both at 12/1 to take the top job.

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is priced at 20/1 to be the next England boss.

Former Middlesbrough striker Mido went on an astonishing rant on social media calling for the FA to sack Southgate as manager and hire Mourinho.

Mido played at Boro when Southgate lost his job in 2009 as the club were spiralling towards relegation in the Premier League.

The 37-year-old said Southgate was scared to lose at Boro.

He said: "I remember him at Boro, he was scared to death when we were fighting relegation. True it was his first job but these things never change.

“If you are scared from losing a football match you will always be scared from losing a football match. And players can always feel it.

“My advice to the FA, go and get Mourinho as your head coach and appoint Southgate as the FA chairman – they are both perfect for the job.

“Get Southgate away from the players – as far as you can.”

Man City boss Pep Guardiola is an intriguing outsider as he is currently in the last year of his contract.

And if things don't go to plan for Southgate and Guardiola is out of work, it could be perfect timing for the Three Lions.

Guardiola is believed to be negotiating a new deal with City as he is currently in his fifth year with the club.
