You bet Jackett suits Wales job
Millwall boss Kenny Jackett has been backed from 20/1 to 5/2 favourite with William Hill to succeed John Toshack as permanent manager of Wales after a flurry of bets of up to £200 (struck at 8/1) a time.
'Some substantial bets in Wales and Worcester, on what has been a quiet market thus far have sent Jackett's odds tumbling - it wouldn't suit us if he were to pocket the job - the stakes weren't just buttons, we now face a five figure payout after this off the cuff gamble' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. Jackett has leap-frogged Chris Coleman and initial favourite Ryan Giggs in the betting.
