Will Mourinho Leave Real Madrid – Betting Odds
After a difficult week for Real Madrid Manager Jose Mourinho, he has denied any rumours that he may be leaving the club.
The rumours are a result of reports by Spanish newspaper Marca that relations between Mourinho and the club president Florentino Perez had become “exhausted” and could no longer continue.
The rumours continued when Eurosport reported that Mourinho had met with Sir Alex Ferguson in a Salford Hotel prompting speculation that he might move to United when Ferguson leaves.
However, just because Mourinho has denied the rumours, there is a chance that he will leave. As a result the bookies have opened up a betting market on who the next Real Madrid manager will be.
The favourites to take Mourinho’s place are Arsene Wenger, Joachim Low, Rafa Benitez and Carlo Ancelotti. Various odds can be found on all of them, Low has odds of 7/4 available at Stan James, Benitez 4/1 at Stan James, Bet Victor has placed Ancelotti at 6/1 and Stan James has Wenger at 6/1.
Of course there are some odds available on less likely characters, Giovani Trappatoni and John Toshack are both 100/1 at Bet Victor.
If you think that Mourinho really is going to be leaving soon then why not head over and pick your favourite today.
