Happy as Larry: Blanc backed to be Spurs manager

by Josh Powell | June 25, 2012

Punters have been quick to back Laurent Blanc as the man to fill Harry Redknapp’s shoes following France’s exit from Euro 2012.

Larry is rumoured to be interested in a Premier League position after enquiring about the Chelsea job and is 7/2 from 4/1 to be the new Tottenham boss.

He didn’t have a great tournament with the French squad but at times that job is more about child-minding rather than coaching.

It would be interesting to see what Blanc could do with a team that actually played together and weren’t as mentally unstable as Charlie Sheen.

Andre Villas-Boas is the odds on favourite to take up the reigns at White Hart Lane next season.

AVB is 1/5 with Paddy Power to take over at Tottenham with the 34-year-old tipped to fit the mould of “young energetic coach”.

The former Chelsea gaffer was reported to have got quite mardy when Spurs didn’t offer him the job immediately. He has since back-peddled at an astonishing rate of knots after realising that his CV isn’t anything special and he needs the work.

Spurs would appear to be a very attractive job right now with the move to a new £45million training ground around the corner. But managers are ruling themselves out left, right and centre.

Slaven Bilic has taken up the job at Locomotive Moscow and Ralf Rangnick has agreed terms with Red Bull Salzburg of Austria after both being tipped for the gig.

Fabio Capello is 10/1 from 18/1 to be the next manager with German gaffer Joachim Low a 16/1 shot. With Spurs reported to be looking at a coach who is at Euro 2012 Low could be a stunning acquisition.

Elsewhere in the market Jamie Redknapp is 66/1 to take the job and spout his Sky Sports clichés at Gareth Bale and co while Tim Sherwood is at 40/1 to get a promotion from the coaching staff.
