Fergie to Quit? Someone thinks so...
In perhaps one of the most unexpected gambles of pre-season, William Hill have had to shorten their odds for Sir Alex Ferguson to be the next Premier League manager to leave his position, from 40/1 to 12/1.
‘We took a few bets for Fergie to be the next boss out at 40/1 , the biggest of which was just £15 from a client in Stockport, and decided to trim the odds to 25/1 but were surprised then to take several bigger bets of up to £25 from Manchester addresses. We went 16/1 and took still more, this time up to £50 bets from the Cheshire area, so he is now 12/1 seventh favourite' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe, ‘We could just be seeing a speculative punt producing a bandwagon effect, but even Fergie will have to go eventually' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Next Premiership boss to go: 3/1 S Kean; 8/1 M McCarthy; 10/1 S Bruce; O Coyle; R Martinez; D Moyes; 12 R Mancini; Sir A Ferguson. 100/1 No manager to leave before end of season.Others on request.
