You Bet Rvp Is On His Way…what Now For Southgate?

Robin van Persie has been the subject of reported bids from Manchesters United and City as well as Juventus and William Hill are betting on where the Dutch striker will be playing on the first day of next season. He is 11/10 to join moneybags Manchester City, 11/4 to be at Manchester United and 10/3 to still be at Arsenal. Juventus round off the top four at 4/1 with the rest of his potential suitors available at 16/1 or more.

Gareth Southgate has left his role as the FA’s Head of Elite Development and William Hill are now betting on where he will pop up next. He is 7/4 for his next managerial rolw to be in the Championship and 9/4 for it to be in League One.

“It was always a bizarre appointment for the FA to select Gareth Southgate and he may well have been a little out of his depth,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “He may well go back to management now and the Championship looks the most likely destination.”

Emile Heskey is reportedly in talks with Ipswich to sign as a free agent and the former England striker is 66/1 to be the Championship’s leading scorer in the 2012/13 season.

Robin van Persies’s club on the first day of 2012/13 season: 11/10 Manchester City; 11/4 Manchester United; 10/3 Arsenal; 4/1 Juventus; 16/1 AC Milan; 16/1 Barcelona; 20/1 Real Madrid; 25/1 Chelsea; 25/1 PSG

Gareth Southgate next managerial job: 7/4 Championship; 9/4 League one; 7/2 League two; 9/2 International team; 6/1 Premier League…others on request

HARRY REDKNAPP BACKED TO BE NEXT PREM BOSS OUT

William Hill have cut their odds about Harry Redknapp being the next Premier League manager to leave his job from 66/1 to 25/1 after a rush of bets from punters believing that if Fabio Capello decides to jump ship from England to Inter, the Spurs’ boss could be in line for the England managerial job. ‘We have seen a number of admittedly modest bets for Harry to be the next boss out, but that would only be a logical bet in the event that Fabio Capello was going to leave his England role – and we offer 8/1 that that happens before the end of the year’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Meanwhile, Hills have also trimmed Harry from 2/1 to 6/4 favourite to be the next permanent England manager and also offer 9/2 Martin O’Neill; 5/1 Stuart Pearce; 11/2 Roy Hodgson; 10/1 Steve Bruce; 12/1 Sam Allardyce. Others on request.
