Harry Redknapp leads England manager betting
Harry Redknapp is the clear favourite to be the next permanent England manager following the shock resignation of Fabio Capello yesterday.
The 64-year-old Spurs boss, who was himself the subject of headlines during the day after he was found not guilty of tax evasion, is offered at 2/5 by bookmakers Bet365.
Capello left his position on Wednesday night following a meeting with FA officials to discuss comments he made to Italian media about the Association’s decision to remove the England captaincy from John Terry.
England Under-21 manager Stuart Pearce, who has been tipped to take charge of the side on an interim basis for the friendly with the Netherlands at the end of the month, is second-favourite for the job at 11/2.
A pair of former Chelsea managers come next in the betting, with the experienced Guus Hiddink and controversial Jose Mourinho available at odds of 8/1 and 10/1 respectively.
