Clark Quickly Becomes Leeds Favourite…europa League Specials

Lee Clark was sacked by Huddersfield on Wednesday and William Hill have seen plenty of cash for him to become the new manager of Leeds. Just an hour after Huddersfield announced their decision, Clark became Hills 11/8 favourite for the Leeds job with Mick McCarthy 3/1 and Neil Warnock 9/2.

“There is no doubting that Lee Clark is a talented young manager and he swiftly became favourite for the Leeds job as soon as he was relieved of his duties at Huddersfield,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Whether he would jump back into management so soon though is another matter.”

Latest Leeds Boss: 11/8 Lee Clark; 3/1 Mick McCarthy; 9/2 Neil Warnock; 7/1 Steve Bruce; 11/1 Neil Redfearn; 12/1 Billy Davies; 14/1 Dan Petrescu; 14/1 Dave Jones; 20/1 BAR

Europa League

Far far away from the glitz and glamour of the Champions League, Manchester City and United will be kicking off their Europa League campaigns and William Hill think that they could do well in the competition making them 4/1 (City) and 13/2 (United) to win the tournament.

Hills go Even money that Manchester United outscore their noisy neighbours (City 7/4 and a tie 13/5).
