Punters backing an ex-Barcelona AND ex-Liverpool manager to succeed Wenger at Arsenal

Punters backing an ex-Barcelona AND ex-Liverpool manager to succeed Wenger at Arsenal

Two managers have received a large percentage of bets in the last 24 hours.

Brendan Rodgers and Luis Enrique are the latest two managers to be well-backed over the last 24 hours for the Arsenal manager vacancy. They both currently head a very topsy tervy market to replace Arsene Wenger.

Since yesterday evening, Luis Enrique has received almost 28% of all bets, whilst the current Celtic boss has received just short of 23% to return to the Premier League.

Brendan Rodgers won the Scottish treble last season with Celtic and was ever so close winning the Premier League in 2014 with Liverpool and another chance to win the title in England may be too good to turn down.

On the other hand, Luis Enrique has serious experience at the top level, including two La Liga titles, three Copa del Reys and more importantly, the Champions League title – something Arsenal have yet to get their hands on.

There is no doubt this is one of the hardest markets to price up at the moment and even with 27% of bets in the last 24 hours, Enrique is still best priced at 6-1 but as short as 3-1. Rodgers is also as big as 7-1, but as short as 5-4 with Unibet.

There is bound to be more twists with this particular vacancy but these two candidates would definitely be strong appointments to replace Arsene Wenger.

Oddschecker spokesman George Elek: "There has been plenty of managers being backed since Arsene Wenger announced his decison to leave. Yet now it has calmed down a touch, it is Enrique and Rodgers who appear to be serious candidates. Both have cracking CVs and they would be solid appointments for the North London side."
