Pellegrino 1/5 For Saints Job With De Boer Set For Palace

William Hill have suspended betting on the next Crystal Palace manager after Frank de Boer was backed in to 1/3 amidst rumours that the Dutchman has been offered the job. That means that Mauricio Pellegrino has been slashed to 1/5 for the Southampton job.


“It was widely thought that the race for the Southampton and Palace jobs were between two men and so, with de Boer reportedly off to Palace, Pellegrino is left with a clear route to the South coast,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Next permanent Southampton manager: 1/5 Mauricio Pellegrino; 10/1 Patrick Vieira; 16/1 Frank de Boer; 20/1 Jaap Stam; 20/1 Julian Nagelsmann; 25/1 BAR
