Steve Bruce new favourite to be next boss out
As the Sunderland fans began to show displeasure with their manager, Steve Bruce, William Hill made him 11/8 favourite to be the first Premier League manager to depart this season.
'Steve Bruce has been there or thereabouts, but the reaction of the fans persuaded us to make him clear favourite for the first time' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Despite Blackburn Rovers losing again, their manager, Steve Kean, former favourite to be the first boss out, is now 7/4 second favourite with Hills who also offer 4/1 Coyle; 7/1 Martinez; 10/1 AVB; McLeish; 14/1 McCarthy; 16/1 Redknapp - and, least likely of all,perhaps, 25/1 that no manager goes all season!
In which month will the 1st Premier League manager leave:
February or March 7/1
April until final day of season 20/1
