Next Arsenal manager: Freddie Ljungberg favourite to take over at Arsenal permanently
Ex-Arsenal legend Freddie Ljungberg is the favourite to consider as next Arsenal director, being trimmed from 10/1 into 2/1 best cost.??
Wolves’ manager??Nuno??Espirito Santo was the odds-on favourite to take over following Unai Emery’s sacking. However, he is no longer the industry leader.??
Nuno was the very popular bet over the last 24 hours with 31%, only a fraction more than Ljungberg (29% of stakes ).??
The Wolves director has drifted out to 5/2 to be handed the reigns at the Emirates Stadium.
Elsewhere, Mikel Arteta is the third favourite at 8/1, followed closely by Mauricio Pochettino (10/1).??
Leading football stats gurus WhoScored.com shown that Arsenal are also conceding the third-most shots per match (16.8) from the Premier League this year (behind Villa (18.5) and Norwich (17.4))
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson:”It always felt somewhat strange that Nuno Espirito Santo was being so heavily punted to the Arsenal job contemplating his achievement in Wolves.??
“While the Portuguese boss is still the favourite for the Emirates hot-seat, a current trend of club legends returning home has observed Freddie Ljungberg punted to second-favourite.
“The Swede played over 350 matches for Arsenal, and judging from Frank Lampard’s success at Chelsea, recruiting a guy who knows the club inside-out may not be the worst idea.
