Portsmouth are in the hunt for a new manager to replace Kenny Jackett. Here are five outsiders for the job-

Gary O’Neil

He started his playing career at Portsmouth and went on to play 192 games for them. The 37-year-old retired in 2019 and worked in the youth set-up at Liverpool before becoming first-team coach at AFC Bournemouth last month. Would he fancy being number one at his former club though?
