New Favourite To Take Over From Hodgson As Klinsmann Takes The Lead

Jurgen Klinsmann is the new favourite to be named as the next England manager according to William Hill. The former Germany international is 7/2 ahead of Glenn Hoddle who is 11/2 and Gareth Southgate and Sam Allardyce at 8/1.

“Most of the money that we have taken over the last few days has been for Klinsmann and his price has tumbled from an original 25/1 to 7/2 and after declaring an interest in the position he appears to have stolen a march over his rivals for the job,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Next permanent England manager: 7/2 Jurgen Klinsmann; 11/2 Glenn Hoddle; 8/1 Gareth Southgate; 8/1 Sam Allardyce; 12/1 Arsene Wenger; 12/1 Eddie Howe; 12.1 Laurent Blanc; 14/1 Harry Redknapp; 20/1 Alan Pardew; 20/1 Alan Shearer; 20/1 Gary Neville; 20/1 Guus Hiddink; 25/1 BAR
