Moyes still odds-on to be United boss next season
Manchester United boss David Moyes is still odds-on to be in charge for the first game of next season despite overseeing his side’s eleventh loss of the campaign on Sunday at his former club Everton.
Moyes has endured a torrid first year in charge at Old Trafford and the Red Devils are languishing in seventh place, 23 points behind leaders Liverpool and having lost very nearly a third of their games. The bookies expect the hierarchy at United to keep faith with him, though, as Coral are offering just 1/2 that he will still be in charge when the 2014/15 season begins.
There will be plenty thinking that the 6/4 offered by the same bookmaker on Moyes not to have his job by that point looks a much better price.
The Scotsman still has another five years left on his contract with the Premier League champions but for him to last that long at the club seems very unlikely. He is 8/1 with Bet Victor to see out his current contract at Old Trafford whilst he is just 1/20 not to.
One reason the bookies may be expecting Moyes to stay a little longer is that they cannot see a clear choice for his replacement. The favourites in the market, currently, are Jurgen Klopp and Louis van Gaal but they are out at 7/1 with Sky Bet and Paddy Power respectively.
