Bookmaker suspends betting on Vincent Kompany being next Burnley boss
Betfair has suspended betting on the next Burnley manager following a flurry of bets on Kompany to permanently succeed Sean Dyche.
The Manchester City legend, who is poised to leave Anderlecht, had been Evens for the Clarets vacancy at the start of the week, and was backed into 1/9 this morning, before the market was suspended. https://www.betfair.com/sport/football
Burnley are 5/2 to win promotion back to the Premier League next season.
Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: “Betfair has suspended betting on Vincent Kompany to become the next Burnley manager following a flurry of bets.
"The Man City legend was Evens at the start of the week and was backed into 1/9 this morning, before the market was suspended.
"It seems as though it’s only a matter of time before Kompany is officially tasked with taking Burnley back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
“Looking at their chances of bouncing straight back, Burnley are currently 5/2. If Kompany does take the job, there's no doubt that promotion will be his main target.”
