Rafa Benitez - Liverpool or England manager

Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez gets the most attention from the bookies for England job.

Rafa Benitez - Liverpool or England manager With the uncertainty currently growing over Rafa Benitez' future at Liverpool, William Hill have opened a book on who will succeed him as permanent manager at the club and make Jose Mourinho 7/2 favourite. And Hills are offering 5/2 that Rafa will cease to be Liverpool manager before the end of the season, although they make him 2/7 to still be there then. Hills make Martin Jol 11/2 second favourite to succeed him, and also offer 6/1 Martin O'Neill; 7/1 Fabio Capello; 7/1 Guus Hiddink; 8/1 Jurgen Klinsmann; 14/1 Marcello Lippi. "The days when Liverpool invariably promoted from within are long gone and were this job to become available it would attract interest from all over Europe," said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

 Menahiwle Rafa Benitez has been the best backed candidate to get the England job since word of his apparently fragile position at Liverpool became public, say bookmakers William Hill who now make him 14/1 seventh favourite to succeed Steve McClaren. Hills make Fabio Capello 2/1 favourite to be the next England head coach and also offer 4/1 Mourinho; 9/2 O'Neill; 8/1 Jurgen Klinsmann; Harry Redknapp; 9/1 Alan Shearer; 14/1 Benitez; 16/1 Stuart Pearce; Felipe Scolari. "Benitez has been the subject of lively support for the job, while Mourinho has been the best backed candidate overall and Harry Redknapp clearly the punters' number one choice for an English option" said Graham Sharpe. Hills offer 2/1 that an Englishman will be appointed to the post, 4/11 a non English candidate.
