Taxi for Mr Jokanovic? Moyes favourite to take over at Fulham

It's reportedly a must-win game for the Fulham gaffer and punters have latched onto David Moyes as the favourite to replace him if results don't improve ...

Comments

After a tricky October for Fulham, who failed to win any points, conceding 12 goals in three games in the process, bookmakers have priced up Slavisa Jokanovic’s replacement.

With Monday night’s game against Huddersfield reported to be must-win for the Serb, Paddy Power make it 4/1 from 7/1 that he is axed before midnight, or 2/1 that he is gone before the Cottagers travel to Liverpool on Sunday.

In terms of his replacement, a new favourite has emerged – the odds have tumbled on David Moyes is 7/2 from 8/1 to take over.

The ex-Everton and Man United manager is out of work following his departure from West Ham after just six months, despite keeping them in the Premier League last season.

Next up in the betting is Sam Allardyce (6/1), followed by Claudio Ranieri (7/1) and Chris Coleman (7/1).

A spokesperson for Paddy Power said:

Fulham have had an atrocious start to the reason despite a record-breaking transfer window.

“The only team worse than them is Huddersfield – who they face this evening. It looks like a grudge match for Slavisa Jokanovic, who is short-priced to be gone before midnight or before the Liverpool game this weekend.

“And, with Moyesy managing to keep West Ham up last season, his skills could be exactly what Fulham need.”
