Next Newcastle manager odds: Paulo Fonseca cut into short price favourite following sacking of Steve Bruce

Next Newcastle manager odds: Paulo Fonseca cut into short price favourite following sacking of Steve Bruce

The ex-Roma manager is the new clear frontrunner…

Bookmakers have unanimously cut odds on Portuguese Paulo Fonseca being announced as the next permanent Newcastle manager, following the sacking of Steve Bruce.  

Fonseca’s odds have been cut from 12/1 just days ago, into 7/4 best price with Unibet at the time of writing.  

In the last 24 hours, Fonseca has proved by far the most popular candidate with punters, accruing 24% of all bets in the market, within that time frame.  

The ex-Roma man is the latest of many favourites within the market so far, with former Borussia Dortmund man Lucien Favre hot on his tails at 4/1. 

Out-of-work Eddie Howe is next up in the betting at 6/1, followed by a fellow Englishman in the shape of Rangers manager Steven Gerrard.  

Gerrard’s midfield partner for England, Frank Lampard, is next up in the bookies’ estimations at 16/1, followed by Roberto Martinez (25/1) and Brendan Rodgers (25/1).  

Unai Emery (25/1), Jose Mourinho (33/1), Antonio Conte (33/1) and Rafa Benitez (40/1) follow next, then comes Roberto Mancini (40/1) and Zinedine Zidane (40/1).

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Paulo Fonseca has joined the likes of Brendan Rodgers, Lucien Favre and Steven Gerrard in a long line of previous favourites to be named next Newcastle manager.  

“Fonseca has shortened to the shortest price of all favourites so far, with some bookies cutting odds into as short as 10/11 odds-on.”
