Remi Garde Bookies’ Favourite to Takeover Aston Villa
Following Tim Sherwood’s departure from Aston Villa, Remi Garde is now the favourite at many bookmakers to be the next Aston Villa manager.
Tim Sherwood was sacked after just eight months at the club following their 2 – 1 defeat to Swansea City on Saturday. Most bookmakers have given Garde odds of 1/4 to take the job with David Moyes trailing at 3/1 and Nigel Pearson at 10/1. Initially Moyes was favourite to become the new manager but reports emerged of Garde being in advanced talks with the club and he quickly became the bookies’ favourite.
Following the departure of Sherwood, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has become the favourite as the next Premier League manager to leave. Chelsea has struggled at the start of this season and is currently fifteenth in the table after winning just three games.
