William Hill have slashed the odds of Martin ONeill becoming the next manager of Leicester following a Liverpool punter backing him to get the gig to the tune of £2500. ONeill is far and away the most likely candidate to get the job with Hills making him 1/4 from 2/5. His next closest rival in the betting is Mark Hughes at 3/1.
Almost all of the early money has been for ONeill to return to his spiritual home and this bet has been the culmination of a 24 hour mega gamble, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
Leicester Next Boss: 1/4 Martin ONeill; 3/1 Mark Hughes; 8/1 Lee Clark; 9/1 Rafael Benitez; 10/1 Billy Davies; 20/1 Roy Keane; 20/1 Simon Grayson; 20/1 Mark Robins; 20/1 Ole Gunnar Solksjaer; 20/1 Ian Holloway; 20/1 Dave Jones; 20/1 Alan Shearer; 20/1 Avram Grant; 20/1 Gianfranco Zola; 20/1 Carlo Ancelotti; 20/1 Alan Curbishley; 20/1 Didier Deschamps; 20/1 Nigel Worthington; 25/1 BAR
