West Ham manager betting update: Di Matteo becomes second favourite

West Ham United continue their search for a manager to replace Sam Allardyce.

The search for the next West Ham United manager goes on and the favourite, Slaven Bilic, has remained the same across the betting market at 11/10.

Bilic would arguably be the perfect option coming into the club because of his experience as a coach and his past as a West Ham player.

However, West Ham could opt to go for a move to sign Roberto Di Matteo after he was let go by German club FC Schalke and the Italian has moved ahead of David Moyes into the second favourite position at 5/1.

Former Derby manager Steve McClaren remains a long shot out at 20/1 despite the obvious experience and expertise he would bring to the table.

This is an appointment that West Ham need to make carefully and one they need to try and make quickly.

It’s important that the gaffer replacing Sam Allardyce is given the space and the time to make key changes to the club ahead of pre-season.

That will give the Hammers the best possible chance of hitting the ground running at the start of the next campaign.
