Southgate Hot Favourite To Replace Hodgson
Next Permanent England Manager
After England’s elimination from Euro 2016 at the hands of the minnows Iceland, Gareth Southgate was initially installed as the 4/1 favourite to take over from Roy Hodgson who quickly resigned after their 2-1 defeat.
The current under 21 manager and former Middlesbrough boss has been backed off the boards and is now the clear front runner at 7/4.
The shrewd punters out there are looking for a bit of value as it seems the FA might finally give youth a chance and Eddie Howe who had a remarkable season with Bournemouth in the Premier League, is attracting support at 10/1. His sides play slick, quick, aggressive football, something that was clearly lacking from this current national side.
An intriguing contender is the former PSG boss Laurent Blanc. The Frenchman has seen his price shorten into 16/1 from 33/1.
