Chelsea manager betting: Van Basten favourite to replace Ancelotti
Former Netherlands boss Marco van Basten has been installed as favourite to become the new Chelsea manager following the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti on Sunday night.
Italian Ancelotti was dismissed from his position shortly after his side’s 1-0 loss to Everton, a defeat that concluded a trophyless season for the Blues.
Bet365 make Dutch legend van Basten 15/8 favourite for the job, despite the former striker not having managed a side since leaving Ajax in May 2009.
Van Basten is followed in the betting by 3/1 shot Guus Hiddink, who had a brief spell in charge of the Stamford Bridge side in 2009, winning the FA Cup in the process. Current Porto boss Andre Villas Boas comes next at 4/1, while Spurs manager Harry Redknapp is priced at 5/1. Jose Mourinho is offered at 8/1 to make a sensational return to the club he left in 2007, while former Barcelona boss Frank Rijkaard is available at the same price.
