Spain odds drift after sacking coach

Spain’s odds have drifted after they confirmed they had sacked their coach Julen Lopetegui and replaced him with Fernando Hierro.

Lopetegui was dismissed just a day after it was confirmed that he accepted the Real Madrid job.

The Spanish Football Federation were furious with Lopetegui, and instead of keeping him until he was due to leave after the finals – they have axed him.

They were quick to appoint their own technical director Fernando Hierro as their new coach.

With the news of Lopetegui’s departure, Bookmakers do not believe the change will help Spain, indeed their odds have drifted out to 13/2.

The 2010 World Cup winners are into 6/1 from 9/1 not to qualify from Group B, while Morocco closed into 3/1 from 10/3 to finish in the top two and progress to the knockout stages.

Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “Spain had been popular picks in the outright market at 6/1 and we only saw the price going in one direction, but the support has all but dried up since the news broke from their camp and we’ve had to push it out to 13/2 from 6/1 to see if it brings them back in.”
