Roy Hodgson still odds on for Liverpool

Towards the end of last week it seemed a racing certainty that the next permanent manager of Liverpool was to be Roy Hodgson. It was then reported on 5 Live on Friday that there could be two other candidates in the running, and then on Saturday we heard the story from Marseille president Jean-Claude Dassier that the Reds have approached him about the water carrier, Didier Deschamps.

All this seems to have triggered the safety first approach from the bookies as Totesport, Paddy Power and William Hill all suspended betting on the market with Hodgson around the 1/4 mark at the time.

He is currently drifting on Betfair as well, at 1.6 early on Sunday morning. Hodgson had been traded all the way down to 1.01 in the last week while Deschamps is available at 20/1 on there, although liquidity is very low.

Reading between the lines there would appear to be a shortage of information currently coming out of Anfield. With the main bookies suspending, and the liquidity so low on Betfair, it would appear no one really knows what is going on in this market.
