Fabio Capello and Carlo Ancelotti favoured for Jose Mourinho’s job

November 9, 2015

jose-mourinhoOnline bookmaker Sportsbet usually waits until there’s a job vacancy up for grabs before opening a market on a Premier League club’s next manager.

However, with the writing on the wall for Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, Sportsbet has installed the out-of-work Fabio Capello and former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti as the joint $5.00 favourites to replace the not so special one.

Pep Guardiola is believed to be in the Blues sights at $9.00, with his contract at Bayern Munich expiring at the end of the current season.

Former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is also a $9.00 chance while Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone has also attracted the interest of the powerbrokers at Stamford Bridge and the Argentine is at $11.00 in the market.

“Fabio Capello has already declared his interest in the Chelsea job but the market suggests he’s locked in a two-way battle with Carlo Ancelotti, who knows exactly what Mourinho’s about to experience having been sacked by the Blues in 2011,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
