Arsene Wenger 7/2 favourite for Germany job after World Cup humiliation

Arsene Wenger has emerged as the early favourite to become the next manager of the Germany national team after suffered an embarrassing exit from the World Cup on Wednesday.


The Germans were crowned world champions just four years ago, but they failed to even make the knockout stage this time around as a 2-0 defeat to South Korea saw them fall at the first hurdle for a World Cup for the first time since 1938.

Afterwards manager Joachim Low offered no excuses for his team’s epic flop, admitting they did not deserve to make it through to the last-16 after three poor performances in Russia.

“This is something for us to reckon with,” Low told reporters. “This is historic. I am sure this will create some public uproar in Germany.

“At this tournament we didn't deserve to win again or move to the round of 16. We were eliminated not because we didn't want to win but we never had the chance to take a lead at any point - we were always lagging behind, trying to keep up.”

Pundits and fans have torn into Germany in the wake of that stunning defeat to the South Koreans that sent them home, and the bookmakers believe this premature exit from the World Cup will cost Low his job as manager.

William Hill is 1/2 that he is no longer holding the reins when Germany begin their UEFA Nations League campaign against France on September 6, while it is 6/4 that Low somehow holds onto his job and remains in charge for that clash with Les Bleus.

And if Low does get the boot, who will replace him?

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has emerged as the early favourite with the bookies, with William Hill going 7/2 that the experience Frenchman makes his return to management in the international arena with the Germans.

“Wenger should turn his phone on as there may well be one of the biggest jobs in world football available very soon,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

Highly-rated Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann is next up at 9/1 alongside Liverpool assistant manager Zeljko Buvac, while ex-Bayern Munich chief Jupp Heynckes is 10/1 to make his retirement a brief one and return to management as boss of the national team.

Jurgen Klinsmann is 14/1 to agree to a second stint in charge of Germany, and the same odds are available for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to answer his country’s S.O.S. after the World Cup humiliation.

Latest William Hill Odds

Will Joachim Low be Germany manager for their next game vs France 6th Sept 2018: 1/2 no; 6/4 yes

Next permanent Germany manager: 7/2 Arsene Wenger; 9/1 Julian Nagelsmann; 9/1 Zeljko Buvac; 10/1 Jupp Heynkes; 14/1 Jurgen Klinsmann; 14/1 Jurgen Klopp; 14/1 Lothar Matthaus; 14/1 Claudio Ranieri; 16/1 Zinedine Zidane; 20/1 BAR
