And whilst the bookies seem to have Gus Hiddink down as favourite to take over from the Brazilian, it’s also being reported in some parts of the media that surprise, surprise, Roberto Mancini is in the frame as favourite – again!
You know it’s January once the bets start stacking up on who the next Chelsea manager will be.
William Hill had already been reported to have stopped all bets on Scolari being sacked, way before our result against United on Sunday, and now the speculation seems to have started in earnest.
You have to laugh though, one of the reasons given for Mancini being favourite this time around is because he’d come in and sort out the rumoured ‘dressing room unrest’. Er, wasn’t it meant to be ‘player power’ that got Mancini his marching orders from Inter last year?
