Odds on Guus Hiddink replacing Tim Sherwood as Tottenham head coach have fallen with bookmakers from 66/1 to 10/1 this morning.
Many bookmakers had suspended betting on the 67-year-old being appointed as the next Spurs boss last night while his odds have fallen from as much as 66/1 to 10/1 with Bet Victor.
Sherwood was appointed Andre Villas-Boas’ successor on an 18-month contract, taking him up to the end of next season, although the former midfielder is expected to be replaced in the summer by a more experienced manager. Current Holland boss Louis van Gaal has been heavily linked with the position while other names such as Ajax coach Frank de Boer and Italy’s Cesare Prandelli have also been mentioned. Under Sherwood, Spurs are fifth in the Premier League and four points behind fourth-placed Manchetser City, who hold three games in hand, and are preparing for a last-16 Europa League tie with Benfica at White Hart Lane tonight.
Hiddink has previously managed in England before in 2009 at Chelsea as caretaker boss, whilst he was in charge of the Russian national side, winning the FA Cup.
