Odds Slashed On Zola For Hull After HUGE Gamble…

Gianfranco Zola has been backed in from 6/1 to 1/2 during a manic 20 minutes on Monday morning to be named as the next permanent Hull manager. He has leapfrogged Chris Coleman to become favourite after a number of three figure bets were placed on him.

“We have seen an incredible amount of money over the last 20 minutes or so which has forced us to slash the odds even at 1/2 our punters are not being put off at the moment,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Next permanent Hull manager: 1/2 Gianfranco Zola; 3/1 Chris Coleman; 5/1 Roberto Martinez; 11/1 Bob Bradley; 16/1 Mike Phelan; 20/1 BAR
