Claude Puel Jumps To Favourite
Monday, 20th Jun 2016 22:21
The bookies seem to have taken a few bob over the last few days as one candidate after another jumps to the top of the list, tonight it's Claude Puel.
Earlier today Manuel Pellegrini looked the odds on favourite , but suddenly Claude Puel has jumped over him, the Frenchman is starting to look a decent option after the last couple of days have seen Walter Zenga and Carvos Carvahal mooted for the job, not appointments that have exited the Saints fan base.
Skybet has Puel at 2/1 although other bookies have him as high as 5/1, Pellegrini is slightly longer at 11/2 with Skybet and it is starting to look like a straight race between the two unless there is a late surprise in store.
Puel has everything on his CV that Saints would require with the only thing against him being that he has never played or managed outside of France.
However Saints will feel that with the experience of Sammy Lee alongside him he will, like Ronald Koeman have a good man to help him adapt to the Premier League.

Even by our standards, the last week or so has been momentous for Blackpool FC. It all kicked off in the High Court - where too much of our future has been determined in the last two years.
