Premier League next manager sacked odds: Nuno Espirito Santo favourite for AXE after Jose Mourinho's Tottenham dismissal

NUNO ESPIRITO SANTO is the new favourite to be the next Premier League manager sacked.

That's according to bookmakers Betfair, who've installed the Wolves boss at 13/2 to be relieved of his duties at Molineux before any of his managerial peers.


The Portuguese tactician was available at 20/1 last week, but Tottenham's axing of Jose Mourinho on Monday has transformed the betting market.

And that's perhaps due to Spurs chairman Daniel Levy being a huge admirer of Nuno.

It's claimed the Wolves boss is on Tottenham's list of potential candidates, along with Julian Nagelsmann, Jurgen Klinsmann and Brendan Rodgers.

Nuno guided the Midlands club from the Championship to TWO seventh-placed Premier League finishes and a Europa League quarter-final.

But having signed a new contract until 2023 back in September – Spurs might have to pay Wolves upwards of £8m in compensation.

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson is next in the market at 7/1.

Palace aren't in any danger of relegation having collected 38 points – 11 more than 18th-placed Fulham.

However, the South London outfit are on course for a SIXTH successive bottom-half finish.

Hodgson's contract will expire in June but bookmakers Betfair think that there could be a change before then.

Asked to clarify the situation, Hodgson answered: "I am in the same situation as the others.

"Basically I think we all have our own ideas of what our plans are, but we are more than happy to wait a little bit longer before announcing those plans."

Fulham's Scott Parker is available at 8/1 with relegation looking more and more likely with each passing week.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is next at 10/1 with Arsenal's Mikel Arteta and Clarets boss Sean Dyche locked together at 14s.
