Dick Fav To Be Black Advocaat

Next Permanent Sunderland Manager

Outright Betting

Following the news that Gus Poyet has been sacked as manager of Sunderland FC, we make unemployed Dutch football manager and former player, Dick Advocaat, the favourite to take over at the Stadium of Light.

Gus Poyet’s job at Sunderland was under severe pressure following their 4-0 loss to Aston Villa on Saturday and the news hasn’t come as a shock.

When the news broke, Advocaat was installed at 6/4, and he is now Evens to be the next permanent manager following support.

His nearest rival in the betting is Sam Alladyce at 8/1 with both Steve McClaren and Michael Laudrup next in the betting at 10/1.

Harry Redknapp, who resigned from QPR in February, is currently priced at 16/1 alongside Paul Lambert whilst former Sunderland player and now first team coach at Leicester, Kevin Phillips, is currently priced at 66/1.
