West Ham Manager: Bilic Clear Favourite After Emery Withdraws From Running

William Hill have pushed out the price of Unai Emery being named as the next permanent West Ham boss after the Sevilla boss announced he would be staying in Spain. He is 8/1 joint second favourite (from 3/1), the same price as Marco Bielsa. Slaven Bilic is the 1/3 favourite.


“He may have been a 3/1 shot but it was a long shot to ask Emery to leave a team in the Champions League to join West Ham, despite the fact that they are in the Europa League next season,” said William hill spokesman joe Crilly.
