Arsene Wengers’s future at Arsenal is more perilous than at any other time of his reign, according to Ladbrokes.
The Frenchman has been slashed to 12/1 to be the next Premier League manager to leave having been longer than 20/1 just last month.
It’s been a miserable season so far for the Gunners, with the north London side out of the Premier League title race and now out of the Capital One Cup – a competition that surely represented their best chance of silverware.
There is a chink of light as they’ve qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League but, with their current odds of 28/1 accurately reflecting their minimal chances of winning that, Wenger’s future at Arsenal is starting to look genuinely under threat for the first time.
Such is Arsenal’s poor form that they’re now just 1/1 to finish outside of the top four and not to win a trophy this season.
Martin O’Neill is the man who heads the betting though and he’s 11/8 to be out of Sunderland before any other top tier boss leaves their job.
His side’s 3-0 victory over Reading appears to have loosened the noose around his neck though and he’s been more bullish and forthright this week than he has for a considerable amount of time.
The result didn’t do anything to help out Royals boss Brian McDermott though and he’s second favourite for the chop at 2/1, with Reading having now lost five league games on the bounce.
Roberto Mancini is out at 9/2 following his side’s early exit from the Champions League and their defeat in the Manchester derby that’s left them six points behind Sir Alex Ferguson’s men at the top of the Premier League.
