Mauricio to Manchester? Pochettino favourite for Man Utd job
Mauricio Pochettino looks increasingly likely to become the next Manchester United manager, according to our traders.
The Tottenham Hotspur manager has been heavily linked with the job since Jose Mourinho’s dismissal. He’s now just 5/4 to be in charge when next season kicks off.
Interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did his chances of landing the role on a permanent basis no harm with a 5-1 win over Cardiff City on Saturday. He’s 11/4 to still be in charge next term.
Zinedine Zidane is back at 5/1, with the rest of the field all at 16s or longer.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s a three-horse race for the permanent United job as far as the odds are concerned, but Poch is beginning to run away with things at the head of the betting.”
