LATEST SPURS MANAGERIAL ODDS: AVB NOW FAVOURITEEnglish Premier League, Football Betting Tips, News
Former Chelsea and Porto boss, Andre Villas-Boas, has emerged as favourite to succeed Harry Redknapp as Tottenham manager.
Villas-Boas’s odds have been cut from double figures to as short as evens with some bookmakers, and Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is believed to be keen to speak to the 34-year-old.
The Portuguese manager, who is a best price of 15/8 with Bet365, has been out of work since being sacked by Chelsea in February and was also linked with the vacant Liverpool job last month.
Everton manager, David Moyes, was the initial favourite to take over at White Hart Lane with most bookies pricing him as odds-on when the news broke of Redknapp’s departure.
Moyes, who has been at Everton for ten years now, has since drifted in the market and is as high as 9/2 with Bet365.
Roberto Martinez, the Wigan manager, remains third favourite despite slipping to best odds of 5/1 with Betfred – but his chairman Dave Whelan has confirmed there is yet to be an approach from Spurs.
“’If Tottenham come to me and ask to speak to him, I have to say the answer is yes. It always is,” Whelan told the BBC.
“I have not heard one thing from Tottenham Hotspur or from Roberto, so as far as I am concerned there is nothing going on at present.”
Ex-England manager Fabio Capello has also slipped in the market, dropping from 8/1 to 10s.
Former Spurs forward and Germany Manager Jurgen Klinsman rounds out the sensible potential candidates at 16/1.
Elsewhere, Swansea have named Michael Laudrup as their new permenant manager, ending a search which saw Blackpool boss Ian Holloway also linked to the Swans’ hot-seat.
