Lee Clark has been backed all the way in to 4/11 to become the next manager of Leicester City. The Huddersfield manager has been the subject of a number of three figure bets that have seen his odds in the last 48 hours tumble from 4/7. The only other contender that has been backed is Mark Hughes and his odds have been halved from 4/1 to 2/1. Nigel Pearson is 7/1 third favourite.
Given the frequency with which Leicester change their manager, you would be forgiven for thinking that the Foxes board would have streamlined their hiring process but alas, punters are still waiting and Lee Clarke is now the firm favourite, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly. It would seem that this one has a long way to go yet however.
Next Permanent Leicester Manager: 4/11 Lee Clark; 2/1 Mark Hughes; 7/1 Nigel Pearson; 8/1 Kevin Keegan; 10/1 Roy Keane; 10/1 Gordon Strachan; 12/1 Billy Davies; 12/1 Rafael Benitez; 14/1 Martin ONeill; 14/1 Dougie Freedman; 16/1 Neil Lennon; 20/1 BAR
