Next Swansea City boss betting odds – Chris Coleman favourite at 6/4
Swansea City have parted ways with Bob Bradley, but who will be his replacement?
December 28th, 2016
With no disrespect to Bob Bradley, his appointment wasn’t met with universal approval and few will be upset with the news that he has now gone. The former coach of the US national side was only in the hot-seat for 85 days but he failed in his task of inspiring a turnaround with the 4-1 hammering to West Ham likely proving the catalyst which led to his sacking.
“We are sorry to lose Bob after such a short period of time,”’ Swans chairman Huw Jenkins said. “Unfortunately things haven’t worked out as planned and we felt we had to make the change with half the Premier League season remaining. With the club going through such a tough time, we have to try and find the answers to get ourselves out of trouble.
“Personally, I have nothing but praise for Bob. He is a good man; a good person who gave everything to the job. His work-rate is phenomenal and we wish him well for the future.”
Swansea are therefore needing to find a new manager for the second time this season and eyes are now fixed on Wales national manager Chris Coleman who heads the betting market at odds of 6/4. Punters and bookmakers feel that the Welsh boss could be just the man to turnaround the Swans’ fortunes after leading the nation to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 during the summer.
Coleman’s odds have been slashed from 8/1 to just 6/4 and his odds continue to tumble, however ex Birmingham City boss Gary Rowett is also very much in the frame at just 7/2 with Bet365. Rowett was controversially sacked by the Blues earlier this week and he would certainly prove to be a popular appointment.
Another candidate which would have been a popular choice would have been Ryan Giggs and whilst many felt that he would have been a better option than Bob Bradley, it would appear that he is effectively out of the running with his odds slipping from 5/2 to 11/1.
