Are You Going To Sack Francesco? Guidolin To Swan Off Soon?

Francesco Guidolin’s odds of being the first Premier League manager to leave his job have tumbled on Wednesday morning with William Hill cutting him from 4/1 to 13/8 amidst rumours that other names are being sounded out to replace him.

This means that Mark Hughes may be saved the ignominy of being the first manager to go this season with his odds eased from 10/11 to 2/1 with Tony Pulis now 6/1 from 3/1.

“Despite a couple of good results this season, Swansea have so far struggled to replicate the good form under Guidolin that they showed last season and a change could be on the way,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


First Premier League manager to leave: 13/8 Francesco Guidolin; 2/1 Mark Hughes; 6/1 Tony Pulis; 9/1 Slaven Bilic; 12/1 David Moyes; 16/1 Alan Pardew; 20/1 Aitor Karanka; 20/1 Walter Mazzarri; 25/1 BAR
