Hot summer in the Premier League
The position of a football manager in the second best football league in the world is without a doubt one of the most unstable jobs in the world. Many great managers already know how hot is the seat of Premier League head coach as the competition very often saw the sudden and brutal departures of even the most well-known and reputable managers. Some do not have the skills, some lack the mentality and cannot take the pressure and in some cases, the owners who invest millions of pounds each year, simply run out of patience.
It should be the same this season too. The transfer market is a complete chaos and mess and every day we hear about a crazy amount of money being spent for single player. The rosters look better and better or at least more expensive and every team seem to have great players for every position. But where big money lays, there are high expectations. Which player or team will be the biggest flop of the season? Which owner will be the first to fire his manager? Or maybe which coach will resign from his position? The BetVictor
bookmaker prepared its odds for such events.Sacking Pep Guardiola would be an absolute sensation for BetVictor
British bookmaker believes that Spanish coach has the most secure job status in the whole Premier League. If the sheik owners of the club from the blue side of the Manchester would want to get rid of Guardiola, they would pay him quite a lot in retribution. Punters who placed a winning bet on former Bayern Munich and Barcelona manager as the first to lose his job could win approximately 14 pounds for every one placed. Other managers that are quite unlikely to lose their job include Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho, Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger.
Surprisingly, the bookmaker thinks that the biggest clubs will not let their coaches go so easily as on the other side of the list of managers that are most likely to be sacked are mostly coaches managing lower table teams. The most likely person to be fired is Newcastle’s Rafael Benitez. Despite successful promotion back to the Premier League, the Spaniard found himself at odds with the owners of the Magpies because of his disapproval of clubs transfer policies. BetVictor analysts and various sport journalists claim that the rumour is that the Newcastle's owners are only waiting for one slip of the panih manager to get rid of him.
Apart from Benitez, the bookmaker also believes that West Ham’s Slaven Bilic and...Chelsea’s Antonio Conte could also face dismissal. The Italian coach, similarly to Benitez, wants spectacular transfers and his relations with Roman Abramovich are said to be cold at most. This can be changed by the arrivals of two of Conte’s main targets Tiemoué Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata. Especially the record-breaking transfer of the talented Spanish striker can both increase Chelsea’s title challenging chances as well as keep Conte at Stamford Bridge for a longer period of time. One way or another, someone will be sacked, and if You will correctly predict which manager will be the first to go, You can win quite a nice sum of money at BetVictor bookmaker.
