Rafa Benitez favourite to be next Leicester manager

Is Rafa Benitez about to swap The Magpies for The Foxes? The money is heading that way as Claude Puel looks set to face the sack…

Comments

The odds of Rafa Benitez succeeding Claude Puel at Leicester have been dramatically slashed, after a surge of bets yesterday.

The Spaniard was a huge 100/1 to be the next Leicester manager with Paddy Power yesterday (Sunday) – this morning (Monday), he’s the 7/2 favourite, after a massive flow of bets.

Puel, despite back-to-back wins over Chelsea and Manchester City, is favourite to be the next top flight manager sacked (6/4) after his side’s late defeat to Cardiff at the weekend.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Whisper it, but poor old Claude Puel is back on the chopping block – a place where he has spent most of his time in England.

“And it sounds like the Foxes could be lining up his replacement, as we witnessed a huge move on Rafa Benitez being the next Leicester manager.”
