Premier League managers tipped to take over at PSG

After failing to make the quarter finals of the Champions League, a whole host of Premier League managers are being tipped to take over at Paris Saint-Germain.

The French side were heavily tipped to win their first European crown this year after splashing out £198 million to sign Neymar, as well as bringing Kylian Mbappe in on loan with an obligation to sign him for £166m next summer.

The Parisians sailed through their Champions League group which included Bayern Munich, Celtic and Anderlecht, but were handed a difficult draw in the last-16 against reigning European champions, Real Madrid.

Despite the difficultly of the draw, PSG were still considered favourites to qualify due to the relatively poor form of the Spanish giants. However, the 12 time European champions did what they did best and turned up for the big games, beating the big spending French side 5-2 on aggregate.

That defeat has led to speculation that Unai Emery is set to be relieved of his duties at the end of the season, and the bookmakers have plenty of Premier League managers in and amongst the favourites.

Despite recently signing a new deal at Man Utd, Jose Mourinho is the favourite to take over at the Parc des Princes. Beleaguered Arsenal and Chelsea bosses Arsene Wenger and Antonio Conte are also among the favourites, as is former PSG player, and current Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Speculation has increased overnight about Pochettino following Spurs’ Champions League exit at the hands of Juventus.

Here are the latest odds:

Jose Mourinho 4/1
Antonio Conte 6/1
Mauricio Pochettino 6/1
Arsene Wenger 6/1
Roberto Mancini 8/1
Zinedine Zidane 8/1
Diego Simeone 12/1
Didier Deschamps 12/1
Carlo Ancelotti 16/1

Selected others

Jurgen Klopp 16/1
Pep Guardiola 25/1
Rafa Benitez 25/1
