Andre Villas-Boas Tottenham
Andre Villas-Boas is 8/11 with BetVictor to still be Tottenham Hotspur manager at the start of 2015 after being confirmed as the successor to Harry Redknapp.
The 34-year-old lasted just eight months as Chelsea boss before being axed and is 8/1 to leave White Hart Lane before the end of the current calendar year, while punters can get 5/1 he departs in 2013 and 3/1 his Spurs reign finishes in 2014.
Villas-Boas has put pen to paper on an initial three-year deal and chairman Daniel Levy told the club’s official website: ‚ÄúI am delighted that Andre has agreed to become our new head coach.
“He has an outstanding reputation for his technical knowledge of the game and for creating well-organised teams capable of playing football in an attractive and attacking style.
“Andre shares our long-term ambitions and ethos of developing players and nurturing young talent, and he will be able to do so now at a new world-class training centre.‚ÄĚ
Spurs are 9/2 with BetVictor to win any major trophy next season, 15/8 to secure a top-four position in the Premier League and 4/1 to fare best of the London clubs in the top-flight table.
Villas-Boas won the Portuguese title with Porto before moving to Stamford Bridge and he added: ‚ÄúTottenham Hotspur is a great club with a strong tradition and fantastic support, both at home and throughout the world.
“I feel privileged to be its coach. For me, this is one of the most exciting coaching positions in the Premier League.
“I have had several discussions with the chairman and the board and I share their vision for the future progress of the club. This is a squad any coach would love to work with and together I believe we can bring success in the seasons ahead.”
