Hodgson Fancied For England: Will Gerrard Miss Out On Captaincy?

Roy Hodgson is the 1/8 favourite to get the England job with William Hill after news emerged that the West Brom manager had been approached by the FA. Having been as short as 1/4 on Saturday, Harry Redknapp is out to 9/2 with current interim manager Stuart Pearce 25/1.

“The FA have announced that Hodgson is the first man that they want to speak to, but whether this is an indication that he is first choice is uncertain,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “All those that think Harry is still the man for the job, now have the opportunity to back him at odds against.”

After his missed penalty against Blackburn signalled the end for Hodgson, Hills have pushed out the price of Steven Gerrard wearing the captain’s armband for England’s first Euros game from 5/4 to 11/8, while Scott Parker is in from 5/4 to 6/5. Joe Hart is the 7/1 third favourite.

Carlos Tevez has announced that he would love to stay at Manchester City for the foreseeable future and Hills have cut his odds of staying until at least next season from 6/4 to 1/20.
