Mancini favourite for Galatasaray job
Roberto Mancini has emerged as the favourite to take over as the new boss at Galatasaray after previous manager Fatih Terim was sacked earlier in the week.
The Italian has been out of work since being dismissed by Manchester City at the end of last season having failed to challenge for the league title in 2012-13, abjectly flopping in the Champions League and losing the FA Cup final to Wigan.
His stock still seems to be high around Europe as he has won titles in both England and Italy and he is now a best price of EVENS with 888sport to take over at the Super Lig champions.
There had been a rumour going round that Didier Drogba could step up from the ranks and take over as player-coach but the bookies do not see that happening with the next in line being Roberto Di Matteo at 6/4 and then the former Bayern Munich boss who lifted the Champions League last season Jupp Heynckes at 5/2, again with 888sport.
Interestingly the recently ousted Sunderland manager Paolo DI Canio is considered an option as well at a best price of 9/1 with the same bookmaker.
