Punter Requests Six-figure Bet On Allardyce Taking Over At Norwich
Paddy Power have been forced to slash the odds of Sam Allardyce being appointed at Norwich City - after a local punter asked to place a six-figure bet on it.
He's now the 10/11 favourite for the role - although Daniel Farke officially remains in his position.
Norwich currently sit 9th in the Championship and are one point behind Sheffield Wednesday, who occupy the final Play-off place
Allardyce left Everton at the end of last season and has been out of a job ever since. The ex-England manager has already got Bolton and West Ham promoted from the second tier of England.
Spokesman Paddy Power: "A Norwich punter has tried to place a big bet on Big Sam taking over at Norwich, despite no talk previously about the eventuality.
"He's always said he's a Championship winning manager - now is his time to demonstrate it rather literally."
