Moyes On His Way? Karanka Set To Take Over?

David Moyes is reportedly set to discuss his future with Middlesbrough chairman, Ellis Short, and William Hill offer just 5/4 that he is the next Premier League manager to leave his job. Should he leave, which looks highly likely, Aitor Karanka is the 3/1 favourite to get the job ahead of Nigel Pearson at 7/1 and the trio of Ryan Giggs, Alan Pardew and Alex Neil all at 14/1.


“Moyes has looked beleaguered all season and it looks as though he is on his way with Aitor Karanka and Nigel Pearson who both have Championship experience frontrunners to take over,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
