'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Former Chelsea boss the new favourite

With Leeds United seemingly no nearer to announcing a new manager, Roberto Di Matteo now leads the betting market.

Di Matteo is the 6/5 favourite to take over at Elland Road with SkyBet with former favourite Brian McDermott now 13/8 second favourite.

This time last year, Di Matteo was on the verge of leading Chelsea to FA Cup and Champions League glory whilst in temporary charge at Stamford Bridge.

That win earned him the Chelsea job on a full-time basis but after crashing out of the Champions League in November, Di Matteo was sacked despite the club lying just four points off the top of the Premier League in third place.

After a successful playing career with Chelsea as well as the Italian national side, Di Matteo cut his teeth in management with League One side MK Dons. He led them to the play-offs in his first season before losing out to Scunthorpe United.

He was appointed manager of championship side West Bromwich Albion that summer and he led Albion to promotion, finishing second behind Newcastle United.

In only their second month back in the Premier League, Di Matteo was named the manager of the month. A poor run of form around the turn of the year saw him sacked in February with the club in sixteenth place.

Di Matteo is currently one of only four people in single figures for the manager`s job.

As well as Di Matteo and McDermott, Martin O`Neill is 8/1 along with former Leeds favourite Dominic Matteo.

Despite being linked with the job at the weekend by one national newspaper, West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce is not in the betting.
