Bookies Suspend Betting on Antonio Conte Being Sacked
After a flurry of betting activity leading bookmakers have suspended betting on Chelsea’s Antonio Conte becoming the next Premier League manager to be given the sack.
Betway and Paddy Power have suspended betting on Conte as rumours persist surrounding his future. There were reports of him missing training last week but as of yet no official word from the club. The flurry of betting saw the odds shrink from 16/1 to 4/1 making him the new favourite at the bookies. At present Diego Simeone is the 7/2 favourite to take his job.
Conte was given a three year contract at Stamford Bridge after he left his job as Italy manager following the European Championships this summer. There are some bookmakers still taking bets with Sky Bet, William Hill and Coral all offering odds in the region of 3/1 on Conte being the next manager to be sacked.
