West Ham manager betting update: Di Matteo already fourth-favourite... Rodgers in top-six

The usual names frequent the list for West Ham's next manager - with some new additions.

Roberto Di Matteo is already fourth favourite to replace Sam Allardyce at West Ham United with bookmakers, while Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is now in the top six, according to sports betting website Oddschecker.

Slaven Bilic

Former West Ham defender Slaven Bilic remains the favourite to succeed Big Sam, with many fans calling for his signature at Upton Park. The Croat is odds on with most bookmakers, priced as low as 1/5.

David Moyes

Real Sociedad boss David Moyes remains second in line with bookies, generally found at a price of 5/1, although reports suggest he doesn't want to move to the Hammers.

Rafa Benitez

Former Liverpool coach Rafa Benitez has drifted to odds of between 10/1 and 20/1, largely because he has been heavily linked with the Real Madrid job.

Unai Emery

Interestingly, Sevilla boss Unai Emery is third-favourite for the West Ham post, found at prices between 5/1 and 5/2.

Roberto Di Matteo

At fourth-favourite already after being sacked by Schalke 04 only on Sunday afternoon, former Chelsea midfielder and manager Roberto Di Matteo is as low as 8/1 to replace Allardyce with the Irons. Di Matteo is a Champions League winner - but has now left three manager's jobs after relatively short periods.

Brendan Rodgers

Quite a surprise, as Brendan Rodgers (at the time of writing) is still in a job at Liverpool. The Reds have endured a truly terrible season, however, and finished on the worst note possible by losing 6-1 (yes, six) at Stoke City. The Northern Irishman can therefore be found at a lowest price of 12/1 to join West Ham ahead of next season.
