Next Permanent WBA Manager: Marco Silva Favourite To Take Over

Marco Silva is the 5/2 favourite with William Hill to take over from Alan Pardew at West Brom with Michael O’Neill the 11/4 second favourite and Michael Appleton 5/1.


“Pardew was a disastrous appointment which has left the Baggies teetering on the brink of the Championship and the likelihood is that whoever takes over will have to manage them outside the Premier League,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “That said, the club will still be an attractive proposition for any out of work manager and will no doubt attract a number of high profile applicants.”


Next permanent WBA manager: 5/2 Marco Silva; 11/4 Michael O’Neill; 5/1 Michael Appleton; 7/1 Harry Redknapp; 9/1 Gary Megson; 10/1 Darren Moore; 10/1 Slaven Bilic; 14/1 Craig Shakespeare; 14/1 Nigel Pearson; 14/1 Slavisa Jokanovic; 16/1 Chris Wilder; 16/1 Martin O’Neill; 20/1 BAR
