Former Tottenham boss could make Premier League return

Mauricio Pochettino has been cut to 11/10 to be the next manager of Newcastle.

The Magpies are set to be taken over by a Saudi-led consortium, whose enormous wealth has led to plenty of transfer speculation.

It has also sparked rumours about the future of current boss Steve Bruce, with suggestions that the new owners could look to bring in their own man.

Pochettino has seen his odds cut from 15/8 to 11/10 this week, while former manager Rafael Benitez is second-favourite at 2/1.

“With a takeover looming, it is no surprise that Mauricio Pochettino is the clear favourite to be the next Newcastle manager,” said Coral’s John Hill.

“Rafael Benitez and Kevin Keegan are also both prominent in the betting to make a return to the hot seat at St James’ Park.”
