Karl Robinson hotly linked with both Bury and Charltonby Jack Kitson / 21 November 2016, 10:42Tweet
Karl Robinson is a manager in demand at the moment.
The 36-year-old finds himself as the odds-on favourite to replace Russell Slade at Charlton (2/5 Sky Bet), while he's also right in the thick of it in the betting to become the next Bury boss (6/4 Sky Bet).
In fact, the only current English Football League vacancy he doesn't feature in is MK Dons - the club he left a month ago.
Robinson's six-year tenure in charge of the League One club came to an end in October after the two parties agreed to part ways.
Robinson's time at MK Dons may have ended in disappointment, but on the whole he can take a great deal of satisfaction from what he achieved during his lengthy spell at the helm, with Championship promotion and a 4-0 hammering of Man Utd two memorable moments.
Robinson is remarkably only 36 and has his whole future ahead of him in the managerial arena. According to the South London Press he has expressed an interest in returning to the League One dugout with Charlton, who axed Slade last week.
Charlton, like the Dons, were relegated from the Championship last term, and have since struggled for form in the third-tier.
Robinson is believed to now be keen to talk to the club, but he'll no doubt hold reservations at working under an owner, Roland Duchatelet, who has savagely sacked seven managers in three years.
Bury are another League One outfit who Robinson has been linked with in the last week.
The Shakers ditched David Flitcroft last Wednesday following a rotten run of form, and have since had over 70 applicants for the job.
However, the club are refusing to rush an appointment, although fans will want to see a decision made soon in order to arrest Bury's shocking slump, with Saturday's 5-1 hammering at AFC Wimbledon extending their woeful winless run to a dozen games.
Phil Neville is also being hotly touted as a possible successor to Flitcroft, while Ryan Giggs is in the mix.
