Big Sam emerges as new favourite for England job

Bookmaker Coral has slashed Sam Allardyce’s odds to 6-4 from 6-1 to become the next England manager, following a rush of bets this morning. Last week, Coral reported strong support for Jurgen Klinsmann, but his odds have since drifted out to 5-2 from 6-4.

“The England manager job now looks like it’s between Sam Allardyce and Jurgen Klinsmann. Last week all the money was for Klinsmann, but with Allardyce expected to be interviewed for the job this week, he is now the new favourite to replace Roy Hodgson,” said Coral’s Nicola McGeady.
