Jose Mourinho Favourite In Next Tottenham Manager Bettingby Jack Kitson / 10 February 2012, 11:39Tweet
With speculation rife that Harry Redknapp will become the next England manager following the resignation of Fabio Capello on Wednesday, Jose Mourinho has emerged as the frontrunner in the Next Tottenham Manager Betting. Mourinho is reported to be leaving Real Madrid in the summer after falling out of favour at the Bernabeu. Despite leading Real to a seven point lead at the top of La Liga ‘The Special One' still finds himself under-fire. His controversial and outspoken nature has displeased the club's hierarchy, while his tactics have also been criticised by the media and players, plus there have also been reports of player unrest. It is no secret that Mourinho loves English football and it would be no surprise to see him back on these shores in the summer.
During his time at Spurs Redknapp has transformed the club into realistic title contenders and they will be doing everything they can to keep their man. Redknapp is the people's choice and odds-on favourite in the Next England Manager Betting and has admitted in the past that if the opportunity arose it would be very hard to turn down. Other names in the frame at the moment include Stuart Pearce, Guus Hiddink, Mourinho and Roy Hodgson. The English Football Association are today drawing up a shortlist of suitable candidates for the job, while it was confirmed yesterday that England U21 boss Pearce will take caretaker charge for the upcoming friendly against Netherlands on 29th February.
Meanwhile, alongside Mourinho other managers to be linked to Spurs include Everton gaffer David Moyes, under-fire Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas and even Fabio Capello. Since Real's defeat to Barcelona in the Copa del Rey a Next Real Madrid Manager Betting market has been open, with Germany national team manager Joachim Low the leading candidate in the odds, while Rafa Benitez and Capello also feature.
