Martin O'Neill Back In Contention For Leicester City Job

Mick Bates by Mick Bates / 04 November 2011, 12:08

Former Foxes boss Martin O'Neill has had his odds cut from 12/1 to 5/2 in the Next Leicester City Manager Betting as he once again becomes one of the favourites to succeed Sven Goran Eriksson. When Sven was sacked O'Neill was instantly installed as the hot favourite for the job, however, his odds drifted after he ruled himself out of contention. New speculation has today arisen claiming that the Ultserman may be interested in a return to the club he guided to two League Cups. Of course it could merely be the rumour mill spicing up interest in the betting but on the other hand O'Neill could potentially be giving some serious thought to joining the ambitious club.

Roy Keane emerged as the bookies favourite yesterday after Huddersfield Town boss Lee Clark, who won the League One Manager of the Month award today, ruled himself out of the running. Keane has been out of work since he was axed by Ipswich Town back in January and is reportedly vying for a return to football management. Keane's old Manchester United team mate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had his odds cut to 8/1 and according to a few reports he is one of the major candidates. Another former Man Utd star Mark Hughes is also in the running, as is Hull boss Nigel Pearson and former Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies.

Despite their inconsistent start to the season City find themselves just two points of the play-off places and with a new manager at the helm they will be confident of mounting a serious promotion challenge. Paddy Power have them available at 10/1 to win the Championship and 5/2 to get promoted.
