Whenever there is a managerial change in football, the eyes of supporters quickly turn to the bookmakers for the early odds. 

After David Wagner was sacked as Norwich City head coach on Thursday, the bookmakers were quick to compile a list of runners and riders. 

How much do they actually mean at this stage? That depends on who you ask - but the lists are often fuelled by small bets that see names jump up the list. It adds to the speculation and debate among fans.

Ben Knapper will be leading the search for Wagner’s successor as Norwich embark on a new era under the former Arsenal loans manager. 

City are thought to want a younger profile of coach as they look to reset after a Championship campaign that ended in play-off disappointment. 

As Norwich continue their search, we’ve taken a look at the latest names on the bookies list.

Carlos Cuesta - 1/1

Current role: Arsenal (assistant)

Age: 28

Cuesta is the current favourite for the post, having been linked in national media reports earlier in the season. 

Norwich are thought to have held talks with the Spaniard last year. 

A career coach - Cuesta’s remarkable coaching journey has seen him work at Atletico Madrid, Juventus and as a close associate to Mikel Arteta in Arsenal’s Premier League title push. 

Cuesta will be well-known to Knapper, having worked with him at the Gunners. The 28-year-old speaks eight languages and is especially skilled at video analysis. 

Will Still - 2/1

Most recent role: Reims 

Age: 31

Still recently left French side Reims having made waves in Ligue 1, becoming the youngest coach in any of the major five leagues when he succeeded Oscar Garcia in 2022 aged 30. 

Still began his reign at the club with an 14-game unbeaten streak and ended up finishing 11th in table. Still has recently revealed his desire to manage in the Championship. 

Like Cuesta, is a career coach having studied Applied Football coaching at Myerscough College in Lancashire before landing his first role as an analyst at Belgian side Sint-Truiden in 2014. 

Knapper sent striker Folarin Balogun to Still during his time as loans manager at Arsenal.

Liam Rosenior - 7/1

Most recent role: Hull City

Age: 39

Despite a seventh placed finish and a manager of the year nomination, Rosenior was surprisingly sacked as boss of Hull earlier this month. 

Hull opted to head in a different direction, with Rosenior getting the axe despite being popular with supporters and implementing a clear tactical identity. 

Previously had a spell at Derby County and is likely to be a popular name pushed into the frame for most available Championship jobs.

Liam Manning - 11/1

Current role: Bristol City

Age: 38

Norfolk born Liam Manning is a one time Carrow Road season ticket holder and ended the season with an impressive run at form at Bristol City. 

Previously at Belgian side Lommel and MK Dons, Manning only became Robins boss back in October after jumping ship from League One play-off finalists Oxford United to succeed Nigel Pearson. 

Another move so soon would be unlikely - but as the recent draw at Carrow Road documented, Manning seems to have his side pointing in the right direction ahead of next season.

Kjetil Knutsen - 12/1

Current role: Bodø/Glimt

Age: 55

A name familiar to Norwich fans, Knutsen has been a name associated with the job prior to both Dean Smith and David Wagner becoming Canaries’ head coach. 

Knutsen was considered after Daniel Farke’s dismissal, but is a three time league title winner and has managed nearly 300 games during his tenure at Bodø and has been linked with Celtic, Rangers and Ajax in the last season. 

A drop to the Championship seems unlikely, with Norwich believed to favour a younger profile of coach. Knutsen is known for his attractive style of football in Norway, turning Bodø into a domestic force. 

Others on the bookmakers’ odds: 

Paul Heckingbottom - 12/1 

Frank Lampard - 14/1 

Steve Cooper - 14/1 

Danny Rohl - 16/1

Graham Potter - 16/1 

Mark Robins - 20/1 

Steve Bruce - 20/1

John Terry - 25/1 

Steven Naismith - 25/1
