Fantastic Frank Set To Fly The Bridge, But Rafa Could Stay
Chelsea defeated Everton to continue their fine recent form and William Hill make Rafa Benitez 7/4 (from 5/2) to still be in charge of the Stamford Bridge club on the final day of 2013.
Frank Lampard was the hero of the day for Chelsea amidst rumours that he could be leaving the club in January. Despite this, however, he is 2/1 to still be at the club on the first day of next season. Should he leave in January, Monaco or America (any MLS club) look his most likely destinations, both offered at 11/2.
"Frank's performances in recent weeks have certainly been worthy of another year at the Bridge, but the odds indicate that his time may be up," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Frank Lampard club on Feb 1st 2013: 11/2 Any MLS Club; 11/2 Monaco; 10/1 Any Chinese Club; 12/1 PSG; 20/1 AC Milan; 20/1 Inter; 20/1 Juventus; 20/1 QPR; 25/1 Real Madrid; 33/1 Arsenal; 33/1 Liverpool *loan deals count. If Lampard does not move in January, bets will be settled as losers.
