New odds on first Premier League Manager to go are uncomfortable viewing for Newcastle fans

4 years ago

With less than five weeks to go until the new season, odds have been released on who will be the first Premier League Manager to leave their club.

There have been increasing reports of Rafa Benitez being unhappy with the lack of progress on signings and indeed earlier today (Monday),  The Mail’s Craig Hope stated that the Newcastle boss was unhappy with the fact neither Tammy Abraham or Willy Caballero signed after he made clear he wanted them. Whilst he added that a number of other deals were also falling flat now, with the level of transfer fees a major hindrance to NUFC pushing any of them through.

The bookies have reacted to this with Rafa Benitez rated as the favourite of all 20 top tier managers to leave first.

The Newcastle boss is 4/1 favourite, closely followed by Chelsea’s Antonio Conte and West Ham’s Slaven Bilic both on 5/1, those two also said to be unhappy with what is going on at their clubs this summer.

Pep Guardiola is thought to be safe as houses at 80/1, as he spends big in this window, closely followed by Klopp and Mourinho both on 66/1 and then Arsene Wenger at 50/1.
