Ladbrokes set a 4 to 11 ratio for Mauricio Pochettino to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Man Utd.
“The Pochettino brand is still very valuable to many European giants,” said Alex Apati coordinator of the house of Ladbrokes. “Based on the current situation, Man Utd seems to be appointing a Argentine strategist soon.”
Pochettino is still an attractive name for many big teams in Europe
Ladbrokes rated Man Utd as Pochettino’s top destination after leaving Tottenham, at a rate of 11/4 (put 4 to 11). “Red Devils”, under Solskjaer, play this season and are ranked seventh in the Premier League with 16 points after 12 rounds.
Other potential destinations for Pochettino, according to Ladbrokes, are Bayern Munich (1 to 3), Real Madrid (2 to 7), PSG (1 to 7) and Arsenal (1 to 10). Of these, Bayern Munich are looking for a new coach after sacking Niko Kovac earlier this month. The London-based bookmaker also does not rule out the possibility of Pochettino coming to AC Milan, Juventus (1 to 12) or Barca (1 to 14).
Bayern’s decision to sack Kovac, just one day after the defeat of Eintracht Frankfurt 1-5, surprised many. Earlier, the German media reported that the Croatian coach would have at least two more games, meeting Olympiakos and Borussia Dortmund to save the chair.
After a year, everything was repeated with Niko Kovac. He was upset at the pillars by often criticizing their performance, instead of getting it wrong after unsatisfactory results.
Many disgruntled veterans with the Croatian military leader, including Thomas Muller – an adult from the Bayern training camp, won glory with the club, but had to prepare for expensive rookie Philippe Coutinho.
Pochettino led Tottenham from May 2014 to November 2019. The 47-year-old strategist has a 45.7% win rate at Spurs. He built the foundation to help Tottenham reach the championship race candidate in the Premier League and reach the Champions League final last season. Pochettino, though, was sacked by Tottenham on November 20 for the club’s poor start this season.
Pochettino’s successor, Jose Mourinho, has won 25 titles in his career. Ladbrokes set the ratio of 2 to 9 for Mourinho to be the best coach in the Premier League in December. If Mourinho is fired by Tottenham before the end of the season, players can earn 16 times the bet amount.
