Alan Pardew the odds-on favourite to be next Norwich City manager
Former Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew is the early favourite to be named the next permanent Norwich City manager following last night’s sacking of Alex Neil.
Pardew is just 4/7 to take the Carrow Road hotseat and help revitalise the Canaries’ stuttering promotion bid.
The veteran gaffer is known to be friends with Norwich owners Delia Smith and Michael Wyn while it’s been reported locally that Hodgson was a guest of the duo when the club played Leeds United last November.
Elsewhere, Mark Warburton is another out of work manager seeking a return to football and he’s also an 8/1 shot.
Other leading candidates include Paul Heckingbottom (9/1) and Alan Irvine (10/1) while it’s 20/1 bar from there on in with the likes of Nigel Pearson (20/1) and Tim Sherwood (20/1) also priced up.
Irvine is a potential market mover given the fact that he’s already the First Team Coach of the Norfolk outfit and he’ll take charge of the team for today’s game against Blackburn Rovers.
