Martinez favourite for Reds post
Wigan boss Roberto Martinez is the favourite in Sky Bet's next Liverpool manager betting market after Kenny Dalglish was sacked on Wednesday.
Martinez has attracted the majority of support from punters and consequently been cut from 25/1 to replace Dalglish after successfully masterminding the Latics' Premier League survival.
Rafael Benitez is the second favourite having led the Reds to Champions League glory in 2005, before adding the FA Cup in 2006 and secured a second-place finish in the Premier League in 2008/09. The former Valencia coach has been out of work since an ill-fated spell at Inter Milan in 2010/11 and has been linked to a number of Premier League jobs in recent weeks.
The online betting company has Frank Rijkaard as a chance to take over at Anfield, with Norwich manager Paul Lambert available at and assistant manager Steve Clarke the same price to take the reins at Anfield.
Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "We've been mainly been seeing money for Martinez with punters clearly holding a high opinion for him following his fine work at Wigan, while Benitez's links with the club and availability make him an obvious option."
