Next Spain manager betting odds: Rafa Benitez & Arsene Wenger amongst favourites

Next Spain manager betting odds

Spain are in meltdown.

A day before the start of the 2018 World Cup, Spain have sacked Julen Lopetegui.

That’s happened the day after Real Madrid announced that Julen Lopetegui will succeed Zinedine Zidane at the Santiago Bernabeu.

51-year-old Lopetegui has been in charge of Spain since 2016, and has spent previous spells at the helm of the likes of Rayo Vallecano and Porto.

That’s left Spain with a huge problem: who will be their manager at the 2018 World Cup?

Rafa Benitez & Arsene Wenger

Paddy Power have been quick to churn out their odds for the Spain job.

Could former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger be the man for La Roja?

Wenger is of course unemployed having split from Arsenal at the end of last season.

Wenger would also have excellent knowledge of the Spanish team.

But should Spain opt for Newcastle United’s Rafa Benitez instead?

Benitez has the benefit of being Spanish, while he would no doubt command instant respect from the La Roja squad.

Newcastle fans, on the other hand, would be gutted if Benitez walked out on the Magpies at this juncture.

Luis Enrique & Albert Celades

When it comes to the favourites for the Spain job, the two leading candidates are Luis Enrique and Albert Celades.

Enrique, like Wenger, is currently out of a job. While the former Barcelona coach is Spanish and available right now.

Alternatively, Spain U21 coach Albert Celades could get the senior job for the World Cup.

Zinedine Zidane & Pep Guardiola

After leaving Real Madrid, could Zinedine Zidane get the Spain job?

Would Pep Guardiola be interested in leaving Man City?

The full Paddy Power betting odds for the next permanent Spain manager are below.
