Mark my words - he may not get the job!
Betting support for Mark Hughes to become Aston Villa boss has dramatically dried up - and William Hill have lengthened his odds from 1/3 to 4/5 favourite.
‘Having been backed as though the job was about to be handed to him, support for Mark Hughes to become Villa boss tailed off dramatically during the afternoon' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
However, 7/2 second favourite Steve McLaren and 5/1 third favourite Carlo Ancelotti have both attracted support.
Hills also make Rafa Benitez 6/1, Roberto Martinez 7/1 and Martin Jol 10/1. ‘This particular market may have longer to run than many suspected' added Sharpe.
