Chris Coleman odds among next Leicester manager tips
FootyOn give their next Leicester manager tips with Chris Coleman odds backed after the Foxes sacked Craig Shakespeare.
Leicester City parted company with Claudio Ranieri’s ex-assistant and successor Shakespeare with the East Midlands outfit in the relegation zone.
The Foxes lifted the Premier League title just 18 months ago in one of the biggest shocks in sporting history.
Former Oxford United manager Michael Appleton, who join Leicester’s coaching staff this summer, is in caretaker charge for the trip to Swansea City.
So, the question remains, who will the Foxes’ wealthy Asian owners go for as they seek another permanent boss?
Read on as we give our next Leicester manager tips…
Sam Allardyce bets slashed
Big Sam saved Blackburn Rovers, Sunderland and most recently Crystal Palace last season from the drop, so could he return to club coaching despite hinting at retirement when leaving the Eagles?
A national team job, specifically the vacant post in the USA, is understood to appeal to Allardyce.
He had just one game in charge of England after leaving the Black Cats, but Big Sam is a market mover for the Foxes.
Sam Allardyce bets have halved in value since betting opened, with BetVictor now making him their best-price 5/1 favourite.
Chris Coleman odds make him clear contender
Wales boss Coleman is out of contract, having just missed out on the World Cup play-offs with the Dragons.
He has been non-committal over his future since, so speculation surrounds the former Fulham manager returning to Premier League coaching.
As the Foxes are the only present vacancy in England’s top-flight, Coleman odds have come in from nowhere to 6/1.
His good work at Craven Cottage, despite selling top players, and getting Wales to the Euro 2016 semi-finals are in his favour.
Sean Dyche another gamble
Burnley boss Dyche is another gamble in the next Leicester manager betting alongside Allardyce bets and Coleman odds coming in.
The long-serving Turf Moor chief kept the Clarets up last term and has two Premier League promotions on his CV.
Whether Dyche fits the big name profile many media outlets expect the Foxes to bring to the King Power Stadium is doubtful.
He is attracting plenty of betting support, however, as his price has been slashed into 6/1 (from 14/1).
Roberto Mancini also fancied for Foxes return
Current Zenit St Petersburg boss and former Manchester City manager Mancini had a loan spell with Leicester as a player.
With his current club sitting atop the Russian Premier League, however, could he really swap a title race for a relegation battle?
Carlo Ancelotti apart, who has said he is taking the rest of this season off as a sabbatical after being sacked by Bayern Munich, Mancini is the most-fancied of the non-British managers.
He is 10/1 (from 14/1) to return to the East Midlands 16 years on from his loan spell.
Pardew and Pearson drift for role
While the above marker moves have happened, a couple of early betting favourites drifted.
Alan Pardew, who once took Newcastle United to a top five finish, headed Paddy Power‘s first-show market at 6/1, but his odds have doubled.
Former Foxes boss Nigel Pearson, meanwhile, recently took a job in Belgium, so is 20/1 (from 9/1) with that bookmaker.
Two-time interim Chelsea coach Guus Hiddink and Derby County manager Gary Rowett have also drifted to 33/1.
