Premier League Managers – Only 2 safer than Rafa Benitez in betting on next Manager to go
The lifespan of Premier League Managers is on average a short one.
Already this season, nine clubs have sacked their managers (see below).
In fact, only seven current managers in the Premier League have been in their jobs longer than Rafa Benitez.
In the latest updated betting after Southampton got rid of Mauricio Pellegrino and gave Mark Hughes the job until the end of the season, it is no surprise to see which manager is favourite to go next.
Alan Pardew is 2/5 to leave West Brom and it is a bit of a miracle he is still there.
Antonio Conte, who won the Premier League last season, is second favourite at 5/1 to beat Pardew to losing his job first, with then Moyes (14/1), Wenger (16/1) and Allardyce (25/1) next.
All of the odds are at the bottom but interesting to see that at 40/1 Rafa Benitez is seen as safe as houses, with only the two managers still left in the Champions League (Klopp and Guardiola – both 66/1) seen as less likely to leave their jobs than the Newcastle boss.
The only fear of course for Newcastle fans is that Rafa Benitez himself may decide to leave this summer if he doesn’t get the backing of Mike Ashley.
Safe to assume though that Alan Pardew will be well gone from the Hawthorns by then.
