A Special Chelsea Comeback
WILLIAM HILL have cut their odds for Jose Mourinho to return to Stamford Bridge as the next permanent Chelsea boss from 8/1 to 4/1 after taking a number of three figure bets on the Special One succeeding Carlo Ancelotti. 'We saw three figure bets in those hot spots of football, Barnsley and Kent, but with a number of other, smaller wagers also being staked there is clearly speculation that Jose is not long for Real and that Carlo could be history at Chelsea by next season. Bitter experience has taught us to react quickly to unexpected beting moves in 'Next Boss' markets!' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
NEXT PERMANENT CHELSEA MANAGER MARKET......2/1 Hiddink; 4/1 Mourinho; 8/1 Deschamps; Rijkaard; 10 Guardiola; 12 O'Neill; 14 Klinsmann; 16 Benitez; Moyes; 20 Capello. Others on request.
ANCELOTTI STILL CHELSEA BOSS 1ST DAY OF NEXT SEASON - Evens yes; 8/11 n.
