Manager Betting Latest from Sky Bet: Mourinho Favourite to Make Chelsea Return

SURREY, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 5, 2012) - Jose Mourinho is the 15/8 favourite in Sky Bet's latest manager betting market to make a sensational return as Chelsea boss for the first day of the 2012/13 season.

The Blues parted company with former Andre Villas-Boas on Sunday and replaced him with assistant first-team coach Roberto Di Matteo until the end of the current campaign.

Former boss Mourinho is now favourite with the online betting firm to return to Stamford Bridge in the summer with former Liverpool and Inter Milan boss Rafa Benitez 11/4 in the latest football betting markets.

Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola is 4/1 to take the role and interim boss Di Matteo is now 8/1 to get the post on a full-time basis.

Sky Bet PR Director Dale Tempest said: "There is a sense of unfinished business with Mourinho. He looks like he will win the Primera Liga with Real Madrid and he would surely be tempted to return to the club where he won nearly everything - apart from the Champions League.

"The fans would surely want him back as Chelsea enjoyed their most successful period when he was at the helm."
