Next Manager To Be Sacked Odds

Jose Mourinho is now odds-on favourite to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked, following Chelsea’s sixth defeat in just 11 league games this season.

The ‘Special One’ has led the Blues to their worst start to a season for 37 years and, already 10 points off the top four, they cannot afford to slip further off the pace.

As short as 1/3 with some bookmakers, Mourinho is now a best price of just 4/9 with William Hill in their ‘Next Premier League Manager To Leave His Post’ market.

Heading into the weekend Steve McClaren had been the bookies favourite, but the Newcastle manager is now available at odds as big as 5/1 with BetVictor to go next:

“Everybody knows Mourinho doesn’t lose at Stamford Bridge” he once said, but the 1-3 defeat to Liverpool on Saturday was Chelsea’s third loss in 6 league home games this season, remarkable considering that he had only previously suffered one defeat at home in the league in his five previous seasons in charge at the club (W76, D21).

The controversy over former Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro cannot help his chances, as she sues the club for constructive dismissal, with reports she will file an individual legal claim against Mourinho on the basis that he was instrumental in her demotion.

His reign at the club will surely come to an end if he loses his two matches this week – a Champions League home game with Dynamo Kiev, followed by a visit to Stoke.

Next Chelsea Manager Betting

Meanwhile, there are some interesting differences in opinion between bookmakers when it comes to betting on the next Chelsea manager.

Former Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti – who won the Double in his first season there in 2009/10 – is as short as 3/1 with Paddy Power, but available at 8/1 with Betfair.

Ancelloti replaced Guus Hiddink in the hot seat at Stamford Bridge, albeit Hiddink had only taken over on a temporary basis after the sacking of Luiz Felipe Scolari the previous season. The Dutchman only lost one league game and won the FA Cup.

With the likes of Pep Guardiola and Diego Simeone not currently available, the best odds of 20/1 with Ladbrokes (as short as 9/1 elsewhere) on Hiddink returning offer some appeal, as does the 33/1 with Betfair on former England boss Fabio Capello.
