7/4 Martinez Early Villa Favourite

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez is Ladbrokes’ early 7/4 favourites to replace the departing Alex McLeish as manager of Aston Villa.

Big ‘Eck was shown the door at Villa Park after a hugely disappointing campaign and punters quickly backed the highly-rated Latics man to leave the DW Stadium for the Midlands club.

Ladbrokes make Alan Curbishley their 6/1 second favourites, followed by Norwich manager Paul Lambert at 8/1 while the Villa board are 16/1 to again irritate the club’s supporters by appointing another Birmingham boss, Chris Hughton and ex-Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is a 12/1 chance.

Ladbrokes’ Jessia Bridge told Betrescue, “McLeish has been a dead man walking for a long time. Having been approached before we can’t see Martinez turning Villa’s offer down for a second time.”
