Leeds United manager betting update: Odds drift on Clarke, shorten for Sannino

Leeds United 2

We've taken a look at the latest odds surrounding who could be named the next Leeds United manager.

One of the biggest jobs currently going in English football is the managerial vacancy at Leeds United.

Some of the most experienced managers in England and some exciting candidates from Europe are thought to have applied for the position with Massimo Cellino recently admitting that he’s confused by the number of coaches calling him.

We’ve taken a look at what the bookies say; who is the current favourite and has there been any movement on the betting market over the weekend?

Former Chelsea assistant boss and West Brom manager Steve Clarke is the current favourite at evens.

Interestingly, Clarke’s odds with one bookie have drifted out to 23/20 with Betfair which suggests that has been movement, with fans betting on another candidate over the course of the weekend.

The second favourite is the current caretaker in charge of the team, Neil Redfearn.

Redfearn has been working with the reserve ranks at the club but he looks a great bet at 3/1 with BetVictor considering a good run in temporary control of the first team could see him handed the job on a permanent basis.

Redfearn’s odds didn’t shorten or lengthen over the weekend.

Former Leeds player Gary Mcallister is the third favourite at 14/1 and again, his odds for the position haven’t changed over the weekend. He knows the club and would be a great appointment.

One coach who has seen his odds shorten over the weekend is former Watford boss Giuseppe Sannino.

Sannino was first linked with the job a couple of weeks ago and while the majority of bookies price him in the group at 16/1, he has moved into shorter odds with Betfair at 23/1.
