What a wild 24 hours in the soccer world. On Sunday we saw The Super League announced, causing meltdown on social media and across the world. Then on Monday morning, one of the founding members of The Super League, Tottenham Hotspur sacked their manager Jose Mourinho, sending even more shockwaves through the Premier League.

The big question now is who will replace Jose Mourinho and lead Spurs into The Super League. The bookmakers have Julian Nagelsmann as the current favorite. Nagelsmann is currently with RB Leipzig and is doing just an impressive job there as he did with Hoffenheim. The 33-year old is one of the hottest properties in the game and is coveted by many of Europe's elite clubs. At 7/2 (+350) odds it's implied that there is a 22.2% chance that Nagelsmann ends up in North London.

He's been a popular wager through our British sister site, with 22% of all bets being on the German. More interestingly an astonishing 48.24% of all money wagered on the market, over the past 24 hours, has been on Nagelsmann.

The most popular replacement for Jose Mourinho, at least with bettors is Fulham's Scott Parker. Fulham look set to be relegated this season, but Parker has got them playing with style and as a former Tottenham player he would be a popular choice. Over the past 24 hours it's been Parker leading the betting with bettors, with accounting for 33% of all bets on the market.

Who will replace Jose Mourinho at Spurs?

Elsewhere in the betting we have Brendan Rodgers. The Northern Irishman has performed miracles with Leicester City and made the Foxes one of the Premier League best sides. He's been deserving of another chance with a big club, following a mixed period with Liverpool, and this could be the chance he needs. He's +800 but could shorten quickly if speculation begins to mount.

Elsewhere Wolves' Nuno Espirito Santo is fourth in the betting but his star has started to wane following his team's poor performances at times this season and an uninspiring style of play.

Ryan Mason is a 20/1 outsider, behind Eddie Howe and Refa Benitez, but given that he's taking charge of the club on a temporary basis following the ousting of Jose Mourinho, he'll have an opportunity to prove himself and could perhaps offer some value.

One interesting name for Spurs fans is that of Jurgen Klinsmann. The German was a legend at White Hart Lane and accounting for 9.58% of the handle wagered on this market in the past 24 hours, more than that of anyone besides Julian Nagelsmann and Brendan Rodgers, despite being a 33/1 outsider. He's currently without a job after a poor spell at Hertha Berlin, but he has previously manager the USMNT and Bayern Munich.
