Chris Coleman New Favourite For Swansea Job

Next Permanent Swansea Manager

Outright Betting

Wales manager Chris Coleman is the new frontrunner to replace Bob Bradley at Swansea who was sacked after just 11 games.

We were initially unable to separate Ryan Giggs and Alan Pardew, making the pair joint 5/2 favourites for the job,

but an influx of bets on Wednesday threw the market into upheaval and saw Coleman emerge as the new 7/4 favourite from 3/1.

Former Birmingham City boss, Gary Rowett, is the new second favourite as he follows Coleman closely behind at 5/2. Rowett was as big as 7/1 on Wednesday, but a flurry of bets forced traders to slash his odds.

Alan Pardew, who was sensationally given the boot as Crystal Palace boss last Thursday, is now 4/1 from 5/2 to snap up the position at Liberty Stadium and return to the Premier League just a week later.

Ryan Giggs was also in contention for the Swansea job just 85 days ago before the appointment of Bradley and was the early 5/2 favourite to take over. However, he has been eased all the way out to 6/1 from joint 5/2 favouritism as support from punters crumbled.

Also on offer at 6/1 is Harry Redknapp, who has shortened in from 14/1 after expressing interest in the position and even promising to bring Chelsea’s John Terry with him. Former England manager Roy Hodgson is next at 7/1 with Jurgen Klinsmann at 14/1 and Frank de Boer priced at 16/1.
