Martin Jol Installed As Favourite In Betting To be New Blackburn Manager

Mark Cohen by Mark Cohen / 14 December 2010, 09:35

Following on from the departure of Sam Allardyce from Blackburn Rovers yesterday Martin Jol has been installed as the favourite by the bookmakers to become the new Gaffer at Ewood Park, the owners shocked most by sacking Big Sam and they may now turn their attention to the former Spurs and Ajax Manager who has made no secret of his desire to return to the Premier League. Jol would be a big name for the Blackburn fans to enjoy and his appointment would signal the intent of the owners, it remains to be seen though whether the Dutchman would want ot join a club like Blackburn where serious investment is needed in the squad if they are to compete in the top half of the Premier League.

The bookmakers certainly believe that Jol is the one to watch here and he is the clear favourite in the Next Blackburn Manager Odds at this stage, he is currently out of work and is sure to be on the shortlist at Ewood Park so he may prove good value. The most interesting name in the betting market at the moment is without doubt Diego Maradona who has been rumoured to be interested in a move to England, the former Argentina Manager would be a sensational appointment but the odds are telling us not to rule him out at this stage. He is seen by many as the greatest and most controversial football player ever and it would be the news story of the decade if he were to arrive in Blackburn over the next few weeks, he would certainly be the big name the Indian Owners are after but at the same time it is hard to see Maradona being interested in a move to Rovers without a huge financial incentive.

One Manager in the current betting who looks good value is Dave Jones of Cardiff who has done an excellent job down in Wales on a shoestring budget, he has been away from the Premier League for too long now and most believe he deserves another chance at the big time. Jones would not be a marquee name for Rovers and that will not appeal to the Owners but his credentials are there for everyone to see and he could prove to be a dark horse in this process over the coming days and weeks. It could be a Managerial search that drags on for a few days as we approach the Christmas period while any new prospective Manager will need to be happy to accept a certain amount of input from the owners. who clearly want to have their say on how the club is run both on and off the pitch.
