Rafa Benitez 10/1 to replace McCarthy in Wolves hot-seat

After the breaking news that Mick McCarthy has been relieved of his duties at Molineux, Stan James were first to open their books on who will replace him in the Wolves hot-seat.

Steve Bruce heads the betting and has already been cut from 10/1 to 3/1 to make a quick return to Premier League management.

The former Wigan, Birmingham and Sunderland manager was sacked earlier this season after a poor run of results and is probably not the name the Wolves faithful will have at the top of their list.

Meanwhile Rafa Benitez also makes an appearance in the betting to make a return the England. The former Liverpool manager is is 10/1 to replace McCarthy, whilst Sam Allardyce is a very unlikely 12/1 to leave West Ham in favour of Wolves.

Alan Curbishley is rumoured to be looking for a way back into management should the right job come up and at 6/1 might reflect a little value.

Lee Clark has done a wonderful job at Huddersfield and may fancy a shot at the Premier League should he get the call. He is currently 11/1, though we don’t expect that price to last unless he rules himself out of the running.

A few more unlikely candidates include Duncan Ferguson (14/1), Roy Keane (16/1), Ray Wilkins (20/1“My Word!”) and Wolves legend Steve Bull (33/1).

Next Permanent Wolves Manager (odds courtesy of Stan James):

Steve Bruce – 3/1
Alan Curbishley – 6/1
Dave Jones – 6/1
Alan Shearer – 10/1
Lee Clark – 11/1
Gianfranco Zola – 10/1
Rafa Benitez – 10/1
Sam Allardyce – 12/1
14/1 Bar
