Chris Coleman new favourite for Swansea job

| 28.12.2016

Wales manager Chris Coleman is the new favourite at 6-4 with leading bookmaker Coral to be appointed as the next permanent Swansea boss after he was backed in from 6-1 this morning for the role. Gary Rowett has also attracted support in the betting and is second best at 9-4, Alan Pardew is available at 9-2 and early favourite Ryan Giggs is now out to 6-1.

“Chris Coleman has been subject to a huge gamble for the Swansea job ever since we opened betting on the market last night. Punters clearly think the Wales boss is the number one target to replace Bob Bradley at the Welsh club,” said Coral’s John Hill.
