Punters Kean on Steve as Rovers face relegation scrap
Blackburn boss Steve Kean has been backed down from 50/1 a week ago to 9/4 favourite to be the next Premier League manager this season to lose his job.
'Blackburn's rapid tumble into relegation contention have not helped his odds, nor have rumours that the club's new owners who appointed Kean have been having second thoughts about the wisdowm of that decision' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
'And punters have been backing him to the exclusion of previously fancied contenders in the past couple of days.'
Meanwhile, previous market leader Avram Grant, favourite on seven different occasions this season to be the next boss out, has been guiding West Ham out of the bottom three and his odds have lengthened to 4/1 to be the next boss to go.
Hills also believe there is a decent chance that no more managers will be dismissed or resign this season and offer 5/4 about that eventuality.
Next Premier League boss to leave his club this season:
5/4 No more to depart
9/4 Steve Kean
7/2 Roberto Martinez
4/1 Avram Grant
7/1 Carlo Ancelotti
7/1 David Moyes
16/1 Alex McLeish
20/1 Ian Holloway
