Sam Allardyce now strong favourite for the England job
Sam Allardyce has been backed into 11/10 favouritism to succeed Roy Hodgson as England manager this summer.
The Sunderland manager has seen his odds tumble from 10/1, following a host of bets backing Big Sam for the role.
Former Three Lions manager Glenn Hoddle is 14s to return to the job, the same price as former Netherlands and Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “Allardyce is finding plenty of favour among punters, and Big Sam is now strong favourite to lead the Three Lions into the next chapter.”
England will kick-off their new era away in Slovakia, for the first game of qualifying for World Cup 2018.
In a group also featuring Scotland, Slovenia, Lithuania and Malta, the Three Lions are 1/4 favourites to top the group for Russia 2018.
Next permanent England manager:
Sam Allardyce – 11/10
Jurgen Klinsmann – 7/2
Eddie Howe – 9/1
Glenn Hoddle – 14/1
Guus Hiddink – 14/1
Alan Pardew – 20/1
Harry Redknapp – 20/1
Steve Bruce – 20/1
Arsene Wenger – 20/1
