Punters Thinking Dwight’s Not Right For Villa

Dwight Yorke may have announced his interest in becoming Aston Villa manager yet since he did so, he has attracted just one bet of a single pound at William Hill. He is all the way out at 66/1 – in fact his odds have doubled (from 33/1) within the last 24 hours.

“There is nothing to suggest that Aston Villa will even consider Dwight Yorke and certainly our punters are not entertaining the idea,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Remi Garde is the 4/9 favourite to bag the job  with David Moyes and Gus Poyet both 5/1.


Next permanent Aston Villa manager: 4/9 Remi Garde; 5/1 David Moyes; 5/1 Gus Poyet; 8/1 Nigel Pearson; 9/1 Brendan Rodgers; 16/1 Kevin Macdonald; 20/1 Bob Bradley; 20/1 Sean Dyche; 33/1 Aitor Karanka; 33/1 Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink; 33/1 Mark Warburton; 66/1 BAR
