Klinsmann Back To White Hart Lane? Tevez To Return To City? RVP To Madrid?
William Hill are offering 14/1 that Harry Redknapp qualifies for the Champions League for Spurs AND wins the European Championships as England manager. Should Redknapp become the England manager, a job for which he is 4/11 to get, Hills make Jose Mourinho the 9/2 favourite to succeed him at White Hart Lane. Newspaper reports have, however, suggested that current US coach and Spurs legend, Jurgen Klinsmann could be in line to take over and he has been cut from 16/1 to 10/1 to take over from Redknapp.
Klinsmann is a legend at Spurs and has shown himself to be quite a capable manager as well, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly. Spurs fans would not be upset with his appointment.
Fernando Torres barren spell continued against Everton on Saturday but Hills reckon he could return to scoring ways in the FA Cup being 6/5 to score his next goal for Chelsea against Birmingham. He is 9/2 to bag his next against Napoli and the same price to do so against Bolton. It is 6/1 for his next Chelsea goal to come against West Brom, although he is 3/1 to fail to score in any of those four matches. Andre Villas Boas is also under pressure at Chelsea and Hills are offering 6/1 that both he and Torres have left Chelsea by the first game of next season.
Carlos Tevez is reportedly returning to Manchester on Tuesday and has been earmarked for a return to the City squad over the coming weeks, but William Hill are odds on (at 4/7) that he does not make another appearance for the Blues this season (5/4 he does).
The January transfer window has shut and Tevez staying in Argentina does nobody any favours, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly. His return could well see him back in the first team squad.
Arsene Wenger has described the Spanish press as creative as they suggest that Robin van Persie could be joining Real Madrid in the summer. William Hill offer 8/11 that van Persie is still at Arsenal on the first day of next season, but also offer 5/2 that he is at Real Madrid. He is 6/1 to have joined Barcelona, 9/1 Manchester City and 14/1 Paris Saint Germain.
4/1 PRE-MATCH HANDSHAKES TO BE SCRAPPED
William Hill are offering 4/1 that pre-match handshakes will be scrapped officially in Premier League matches before the start of next season. Hills had offered 1/5 that Evra and Suarez WOULD shake hands, and 10/3 that they would not. Hills go 5/1 that Kenny Dalglish and Luis Suarez have left Liverpool by the first game of next season.
After Rio Ferdinand refused to shake hands with Suarez, Hills are offering 11/4 that he and John Terry will NOT start in the same Euro 12 side for England.
When will Torres next score: 6/5 Birmingham; 9/2 Napoli; 9/2 Bolton; 6/1 WBA; 3/1 not to score in any of these matches
