There are plenty of soccer betting sites out there that are currently offering great odds for managers getting sacked over the remaining few months of the season.
The Premier league 2012-13 season is coming to an end. Even though there are still a few months to go before the end of the season, it is going to be a busy period for the chairman’s of each club because there are plenty of managers, whose future needs to be sorted out before the end of the season.
One of the managers in danger of being sacked before the end of the season is Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish.
Alex McLeish took over from former Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier at the start of the season. He was never the favourite man for the job amongst the Villa faithful due to his connections with Birmingham City.
Alex McLeish took Birmingham city down the previous season, which has meant that there was a lot of animosity amongst the fans even before they could get the opportunity to witness the changes he was about to make at the football club. So far, he seems to have taken Aston Villa backward after they are not only getting the results, but also not playing attractive football as well.
Aston Villa are currently in the 15th position in the table. They have 28 points on the board, which puts them extremely close to the relegation zone. Only seven points separate them from the relegation zone.
Hence, the bookmakers have seriously reduced the odds of Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish to become the next manager to receive the sack. Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy was the previous manager to get the boot after suffering a horrible 5-1 defeat at the hands of arch rivals West Brom. Alex McLeish’s odds have been cut to 7-1.
