Redknapp to Chelsea?

| 26.05.2011

Harry Redknapp is now the even money favourite to take over at Chelsea according to Ladbrokes.

Following a sustained gamble the Spurs boss has been backed from 5/1 into even money in the last 48 hours.

Former warm favourite Guus Hiddink is out to 2/1 (from 6/4) with Marco Van Basten solid at 3/1. Since ruling himself out of the running for the job Jose Mourinho also drifts to 14/1.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “The Redknapp gamble is showing no sign of stopping. Punters are backing him for the job at all rates and if he gets the gig we’re in trouble.”
