Jurgen Klopp Is Odds On Favourite To Be Next Premier League Manager To Leave
Jurgen Klopp's odds to become the next Premier League manager to leave his post have dropped dramatically following the 3-1 loss to Leicester City on Saturday.
The Reds' chances of retaining their Premier League title this season all but came to an end on Saturday, as Leicester controversially overturned Mohamed Salah's opener to score three times in seven minutes.
First James Maddison scored from a free kick, when Liverpool fans believed there was an offside, before Alisson's latest mistake handed Jamie Vardy a goal and Harvey Barnes rounded things off.
The result left Klopp's team 13 points behind league leaders Manchester City already, with Pep Guardiola's side having a game in hand.
On Sunday there were rumours that the German had left the Anfield club, although there was nothing substantial behind the claims, and now he is favourite to be next to leave his club.
According to Oddschecker, Klopp can be backed for as little as 2/3 and only as high as evens. Jose Mourinho is the next most likely according to the betting, with the Spurs boss 5/2 at worst and 3/1 at best.
League strugglers Roy Hodgson, Steve Bruce and Sam Allardyce are more expectedly next in the betting, even with 'Big Sam' only being appointed recently.

The other end of the odds show what good a job the likes of Marcelo Bielsa, Guardiola, Dean Smith, Carlo Ancelotti, David Moyes and Brendan Rodgers have done this season.
Those managers, along with Sean Dyche who continues to be impressive as Burnley boss, are the least likely managers to leave their current post.
