4. **Roberto De Zerbi (15/2):** The Italian manager, formally of Shakhtar Donetsk and how the head coach of Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion., brings a different flavor to the list of potential successors. De Zerbi’s odds indicate he’s considered a viable option, perhaps due to his tactical acumen and European experience.

5. **Julian Nagelsmann (9/1):** The young German manager has impressed in his previous roles, is currently the manager of the Germany national team. He has previously managed TSG Hoffenheim, RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, showcasing tactical innovation.
