We are slowly heading towards the end of the Premier League season but the league itself shows no signs of slowing down.
While it could appear shocking to many English football fans, especially those backing the Lilywhites, but Jose «The Special One» Mourinho has become the front runner to lose his managerial job at Tottenham. Many leading online betting operators have priced up the Portuguese football manager as their favourite to become the next Premier League coach to be sacked.
The shortest price on the market for Mourinho’s sacking is currently offered by the well-known British online bookmaker William Hill
. The book is offering the odds as short as 3.00 (2/1)
for «The Special One» to leave his post. Moreover, other popular top online bookmakers like Betfair, Unibet & BetVictor priced up such an option in a similar fashion. It seems not surprising at all, considering the fact The Spurs have lost 4 of their last 5 games in the Premier League alone, currently occupying the 9th seed in the league standings.
As it appears to be, Jose is not the only top-class manager who should worry about losing a job. Jurgen Klopp and his struggling Liverpool squad have lost their last 4 consecutive EPL matches, leaving The Reds outside European competition seeds. Lucky for Klopp, top online bookmakers
see him less likely to lose the job, pricing him at around 8.00 (7/1)
across the market.
