Sir Alex Ferguson Retires: Mourinho and Moyes lead United betting
Jose Mourinho and David Moyes are the front runners to become the next Manchester United manager after the shock announcement that Sir Alex Ferguson is to leave the role at the end of the season.
The Scot is to retire after a trophy-laden 26 years at this year’s Premier League champions, a haul that includes 13 top flight titles and two Champions League crowns.
Current Real Madrid boss Mourinho, himself a two-time Champions League winner, is 1.9 favourite with online bookmakers Bwin to assume the Old Trafford hotseat.
Next in the betting comes Everton chief David Moyes, with the popular but major trophyless Toffees gaffer offered at odds of 2.25.
The rest of the contenders are offered at double figure prices, led by Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp at 13.
A quartet of ex-players come next in the betting, including Ryan Giggs (21), Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (26), Gary Neville (34) and Lauren Blanc (41).
