Andre Villas-Boas backed to be sacked by Tottenham Hotspur
AVB is odds-on with some bookmakers to be the next Premier League manager out of a job following Sunday’s 6-0 hammering at the Etihad Stadium.

Tottenham were humiliated by Manchester City, with the manager admitting after the match that he was ashamed by a performance which started badly when Jesus Navas scored within seconds of the match kicking off.
Spurs were 3-0 down at the interval leading Villas-Boas to introduce Emmanuel Adebayor to chase the game, although the visitors soon conceded another two goals and Navas’ strike before the final whistle rubbed salt into the wounds.
It appears that the Spurs hierarchy are far from impressed with the team’s start to the season based on the fact that over £100million was spent on new players during the summer, with Tottenham now sitting ninth in the Premier League table.
Former Spurs boss Martin Jol was strong favourite to win the infamous Sack Race market although the Dutchman has been replaced by Andre Villas-Boas and bookmakers BetVictor go as short as 4/6 that the current Tottenham manager is the next top flight boss to leave his position.
However, William Hill offer a bigger 11/10 and rate Jol as having as much chance of exiting Craven Cottage next.
As for the next Tottenham manager odds, Michael Laudrup is as short as 3/1 to replace Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane, with the Dane recently revealing that he was the subject of interest from Chelsea in the summer.
Laudrup continues to do well with Swansea, although Spurs might not act too quickly on the 6-0 defeat by Manchester City unless further results continue to be underwhelming, with Manchester United visiting White Hart Lane on Sunday.
