Ladbrokes set a 4 to 11 ratio for Mauricio Pochettino to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Man Utd.
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).
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 to the 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.
The house stopped accepting money to set up Arteta as Arsenal manager
UK City assistant coach Mikel Arteta is close to Arsenal’s chair after meeting the London club leader.
Earlier, Arsenal CEO Vinai Venkatesham and negotiator Huss Fahmy had appeared outside Arteta’s mansion in Manchester. The two sides are believed to have met on the sidelines of the match between Arsenal and Man City in the 17th round of the Premier League on Sunday night 15/12.
Arsenal fired Unai Emery in late November 2019, after a series of seven failed matches. However, interim coach Freddie Ljungberg failed to lift the club. After losing to Man City, the Swede urged the “Gunners” leader to appoint a new coach.
A year and a half ago, Arteta appeared on the list of successor Arsene Wenger. However, the experience of holding the balance did not make the former Arsenal midfielder lose his position to Emery. Opportunities opened again with Arteta, and this time, he was likely to be satisfied.
