Liverpool assistant manager Zeljko Buvac’s sudden departure from Anfield earlier this week is shrouded in mystery – but our traders may have stumbled upon the answer.

We’ve been forced to slash the odds on the Bosnian succeeding Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

A succession of bets has forced the coach’s odds from 200/1 no chance to 5/1 contender over the last 24 hours.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “We all know that Arsene Wenger had a philosophy at Arsenal, so it’s appropriate that a man known as ‘the brains’ is linked with succeeding him.

“This would be very bold, though – and distinctly un-Arsenal like – but we can’t ignore what our punters are telling us.”
