England Ladies: Who Are The Favourites To Take Over From Mark Sampson?

With Mark Sampson stepping down as England Ladies manager, William Hill make Brent Hills the 2/1 favourite to be the next manager. Hills is followed in the betting by Mo Marley at 3/1 and John Herdman at 4/1. These three are quite some way ahead of the chasing pack with Emma Hayes the 10/1 fourth favourite.


“The early betting suggests the next manager may be an appointment from within but given the profile of the job, there will certainly be no shortage of candidates,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Next permanent England ladies’ manager: 2/1 Brent Hills; 3/1 Mo Marley; 4/1 John Herdman; 10/1 Emma Hayes; 16/1 Shelley Kerr; 16/1 Kelly Smith; 16/1 Silvia Neid; 20/1 Karen Walker; 20/1 Faye White; 25/1 Tony Di Cicco; 33/1 Hope Powell; 40/1 Bruno Bini; 40/1 Casey Stoney; 50/1 Tom Sermanni; 50/1 Stuart Pearce; 50/1 Alex Scott
