A dollar will get you five if you wager than Mourinho is fired before any of his peers in the 2018-19 Premier League season, a slight edge over the 6:1 odds given Southampton’s Mark Hughes.
It’s no surprise to see Leicester City’s Claude Puel on the list after a tough finish to 2017-18, or Watford’s Javi Gracia because the Hornets seem to enjoy changes managers. Rafa Benitez of Newcastle is up there mostly due to his bosses as well.
A surprise? Maybe Manuel Pellegrini at 16:1 given both his reputation and West Ham’s need to make this hiring work for the good of all parties.
