Leicester Manager Market Suspended

William Hill have taken the decision to suspend betting on who will be the next permanent Leicester City manager after a major gamble on Martin O’Neill.


He started the day at 10/1 however, he had been backed all the way in to 1/4 by the time the market was suspended at 11:35 on Friday with some large four figure bets being placed at that price.


“There are some people out there who seem convinced that O’Neill is very close to getting the job if he hasn’t accepted the role already,” said William hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Prices at the close of betting: 1/4 Martin O’Neill; 7/1 Bob Bradley; 8/1 Neil Lennon; 8/1 Pedrag Radosvljevic; 12/1 Guus Hiddink
