Premier League next manager sacked odds: Bookies SUSPEND betting with Brendan Rodgers on the brink | The Sun

BOOKMAKERS Betfair have SUSPENDED betting on the next Premier League manager to leave.

Brendan Rodgers was already favourite to leave his post next before yesterday's 5-2 thumping at Brighton saw his price crash and the market shut.

Rodgers shortened into 1/5 before Betfair revealed they weren't taking any more bets on this market.

They tweeted: "We think it's the end of Rodgers at Leicester."

Ten top-flight bosses were dismissed in the 2021-22 season, and Bournemouth's Scott Parker became the first this year after a 9-0 defeat by Liverpool.

The Foxes have taken one point from a possible 12 in their opening five matches, and sit bottom of the division.

It was a turbulent summer for Leicester, who lost French centre-back Wesley Fofana to Chelsea in a deal worth £70million.

However, Rodgers only had a fraction of that to spend, with Wout Faes joining from Reims as a replacement for just over £15million – while Alex Smithies joined on a free.

Steven Gerrard went into the weekend just behind Rodgers at the top of the market.

His team got him out a bit of trouble when drawing with Manchester City on Saturday evening and the pressure lifted off him for the time being.

Wolves boss Bruno Lage and Everton's Frank Lampard were also amongst those at the top before positive weekend results.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: “Betfair has suspended betting on Brendan Rodgers to be the next Premier League manager to lose his job this season after an influx of bets as his side were beaten 5-2 by Brighton on Sunday.

"Rodgers had been odds-on at 8/15 to go before kick-off and the market was suspended shortly after full-time.

"Rock-bottom Leicester are winless in their opening six league matches and are 13/5 to be relegated from the top-flight.”
