Victor Sanchez and Quique Flores linked with Leedsby Jack Kitson / 12 June 2017, 12:26Tweet
No one has the faintest idea who will replace Garry Monk at Leeds United, reflected in the betting, which changes by the day.
Victor Sanchez is the latest manager that’s stormed into the mix after his odds were cut from 20/1 (Sunday) to as short as 13/8 to take over at Elland Road, ahead of the likes of Jaap Stam, Alan Pardew, and Quique Sanchez Flores who in the last couple of days has seen his odds cut from 33/1 to just 9/2.
The former Watford boss is currently over in Spain with Espanyol, and considering he’s only a year into his three-year contract a sudden switch appears unlikely.
It's Sanchez who makes for interesting reading at the summit of the market. The former Real Madrid midfielder (who won La Liga and the Champions League with the club), carried out assistant roles at Getafe, Sevilla and Olympiakos, before venturing into the dugout with former club Deportivo La Coruna in 2015.
He was axed after single season following a 15th place finish, but jumped back into management last June, replacing Marco Silva at Olympiakos.
Sanchez lasted less than two months at the helm, but a couple of months later he was back, this time with Real Betis with whom he managed until the end of the season when he was then dismissed…again.
Elsewhere, Reading boss Stam may be on the shortlist for the Whites job, but the Dutchman’s agent has distanced him from the post, telling Dutch media that he’d only leave the Royals for a Premier League job (he’s 16/1 to replace Claude Puel at Southampton).
