Next Premier League Manager To Go – Bookies have Rafa Benitez and Alan Pardew in top 4 favourites
The odds have been slashed on Alan Pardew being the Next Premier League Manager To Go.
West Brom are in disarray and earlier this week took the unusual move(s) of sacking the Chairman and Chief Executive.
It is usually the manager who gets the bullet and when you are rock bottom with 11 games to go and seven points from safety, something desperate appears to be needed.
Alan Pardew has won only one Premier League game out of the 13 games and three months he has had at The Hawthorns. It appears to be the fact that they have already changed the manager once already this season that appears to be keeping Pardew in place up to now.
However, today saw the story break of alleged complete indiscipline on their warm weather break in Barcelona, media claims of four of Alan Pardew’s senior players having stolen a taxi on a night out, when there was said to be a curfew.
Alan Pardew now 4/1 third favourite to be the Next Premier League Manager to go.
Interestingly, West Brom tomorrow face the club whose manager is second favourite in the betting.
Mauricio Pellegrino is currently 7/4 after a disastrous season so far leaves them third bottom of the Premier League.
Whoever loses Saturday’s FA Cup fifth round tie is bound to see the pressure increase and the odds shorten.
Chelsea continues to be a club who always seem to be heading towards a change of manager no matter how many trophies they win.
Antonio Conte led Chelsea to the PL title last season and has them top four at the minute, only three points off second top. On top of that, Chelsea are in the last 16 of the Champions League, last 16 of the FA Cup, as well as having reached the League Cup semi-finals.
Despite this, Antonio Conte is even money favourite to be the first to go.
As for Rafa Benitez, he comes in as fourth favourite, although there is now considerable distance between him and Alan Pardew now.
The Newcastle boss now 20/1 to be the next to leave, Sunday’s win over Manchester United doing no harm.
(***Saturday update – Alan Pardew now 1/1 favourite to be next to go)
