Sunderland manager betting update: Fans show support for one clear option

Sunderland are still looking for a manager to replace Dick Advocaat.

With Paul Clement now confirmed as the new Derby County manager, the list of potential candidates for the role at Sunderland has got a little bit smaller.

Sean Dyche remains the favourite at odds of 6/4 though it will be very difficult for the Black Cats to convince him to turn his back on Burnley as he will be determined to get them back into the Premier League.

Sam Allardyce remains a good bet at 3/1 considering his experience and know-how when it comes to getting teams into good positions in the Premier League table.

Allardyce ticks every box if Sunderland want a manager who will consolidate them as a safe Premier League outfit.

There is still a little bit of support for Philipp Cocu at 6/1 while ex-Derby manager Steve McClaren is slightly longer in the market at 10/1.

In terms of outsiders in the betting, Roberto Di Matteo’s odds have come in a little shorter over night, but he is still a long way behind the main favourites.

Sunderland must take their time over this decision as they look to progress.
