Rdm To Be Given A Chelsea Chance But Gaurdiola Could Be In To Pep Things Up

It has been widely suggested that Roberto Di Matteo will be given the Chelsea job after his incredible work in the second half of the season. William Hill offer 11/10 that the Italian is no longer boss on the first day of the 2013/14 season.

“Di Matteo came in last season and performed admirably and it would be somewhat of an injustice if he was not given a fair crack of the whip,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Abramovich’s axe, however, is never far from the necks of his managers and if RDM slips up in the shadow of Guardiola, wholesale changes could be afoot.”

As Pep Guardiola stepped down at Barcelona, Roman Abramovich’s eyes must have lit up, but with the Spaniard claiming that he wanted a year away from the game, the Chelsea tycoon could not bag his man. William Hill are, however, offering 6/1 that by the time the 2013/14 season rolls round, the former Barca boss is sat at the helm at Stamford Bridge.

Roberto Di Matteo to be manager at the start of the 2013/14 season: 4/6 yes; 11/10 no

6/1 Pep Guardiola to be Chesea manager at the start of the 2013/14 season

*both bets only count should Roberto Di Matteo be named as next permanent Chelsea manager

Kuyt Flying And Bent Into Shape ?


Dirk Kuyt could be one of a number of high profile casualties at Liverpool this summer, with William Hill offering 5/4 that he has left the club by the start of next season. Another who could be on his way is Maxi Rodriguez, who is Even money to have gone in the same time frame. The good news for Liverpool, however, is that Suarez, Gerrard and Reina all look like they will be staying, with Hills making them 1/4, 1/16 and 1/12 respectively to still be at Anfield. ‘Kuyt is popular at Liverpool but he could be amongst the players most likely to leave the club before the start of next season’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Share.

To be at Liverpool start of 2012/2013 season Yes No
Dirk Kuyt 4/7 5/4
Pepe Reina 1/12 6/1
Andy Carroll 1/3 9/4
Maxi Rodriguez 8/11 EVS
Steven Gerrard 1/16 7/1
Luis Suarez 1/4 11/4


DARREN BENT is optimistic that he can regain fitness in time to be part of the Euro squad but William Hill are less confident and offer 4/1 that he will be included in the final squad. ‘With the current shortage of reliable English forwards, other than Rooney, Bent will have a great chance of being included if he can overcome his serious injury in time’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills – Darren Bent to be in the Euro squad? 4/1 yes; 1/7 no


Lawrie Sanchez has claimed that he can envisage a female manager taking charge of a Premier League club within the next ten years, but Hills disagree, offering 100/1 that a female is in the Premier League within the next decade. It is 33/1 for a female manager to be in the Football League within the next 5 years. ‘Apparently Sanmchez has bet a pal that there will be a female Premier League boss within ten years – I hope he got decent odds as we’re prepared to offer 100/1about it happening!’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
