Next Chelsea Manager Betting

Mourinho has made no secret of his desire to return to the Premier League

Prior to the weekend win over Manchester City, Chelsea's chief executive Ron Gourlay told the BBC that the club would judge the performance of manager Carlo Ancelotti in the summer and asses the Italian's position.

Having kept pace with Premier League leaders Manchester United by defeating City on Sunday his position is looking more assured than it was just a few days ago. Nevertheless, Ancelotti was handed a stark reminder, if any were needed, that despite last season's success his job status is far from secure.

Perhaps surprisingly, it is two former Blues managers that currently head the next Chelsea manager betting markets. Both Guus Hiddink and Jose Mourinho can be backed at odds of 11/4 to replace Ancelotti should he depart.

Hiddink took temporary charge of Chelsea back in February 2009 shortly after the departure of Luiz Felipe Scolari. The Dutchman combined his role as Chelsea manager with his duties as coach of the Russian national team for a short period of six months and led the team to FA Cup glory. The players held him in high esteem, many of whom tried, unsuccessfully, to convince him to stay at the end of the season.

Mourinho's reputation at Stamford Bridge is unquestionable and the Portuguese manager's stock has only escalated since his departure from London. Since leaving Chelsea he has won two Scudettos and a Champions League title at Inter Milan and is currently in his first season in charge at Real Madrid.

Mourinho has made no secret of his desire to return to the Premier League but whether the timing would be right if the Chelsea job became available this summer remains to be seen.

Other names quoted towards the fore of the next Chelsea manager betting include former Chelsea midfielder and current Marseille manager Didier Deschamps at 11/1, former Celtic and Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill at 12/1 and current Everton manager David Moyes at 14/1.

Ancelotti's days may not be numbered just yet, but in this cut throat business many managers are only ever a few bad results away from the sack.
