Patrick Vieira has quickly become the odds-on favorite for the Newcastle head coach job today, as a lot of money seems to be being placed on the France International World Cup winner, who has huge prestige in the world of football.
Patrick Vieira – now odds-on favorite at Newcastle
Patrick is being quoted at 8/11 odds-on by SkyBet after being 6-1 earlier today – and there is breaking news tonight that Patrick will meet with Lee Charnley and the Newcastle Football Board about the possibility of him becoming the new head coach at Newcastle.
That meeting is said to be scheduled early next week.
Patrick is in Wales this weekend on a coaching course, but he is expected to fly into Newcastle at the beginning of the week, and he seems to have a good possibility of getting the job if he impresses the hierarchy at Newcastle United.
The latest voting on SkyBet is as follows:
Patrick Vieira 8/11
Steve McClaren 11/4
John Carver 6/1
Michael Laudrup 10/1
David Moyes 14/1
Newcastle are expected to announce their new head coach before the end of next week so he can come in and help with the transfers of players, and also prepare for pre-season training which is due to begin at Benton in early July.
