Macclesfield Next Manager Odds after Sol Campbell

Odds released for next Macclesfield manager

We are only two weeks into the English Football League and we already have our first managerial casualty.

It was announced yesterday that Sol Campbell and Macclesfield Town had parted ways, with reports stating that the Englishman had not been paid in the last four months.

The former Arsenal and Tottenham player handed in his resignation, leaving Danny Whitaker to step in as the caretaker manager. Despite this not being an unfamiliar position for the ex-Maccesfield player, he has not been made the favourite to take the job on a permanent basis.

So, who is being considered in the run-in for the position?

Daryl McMahon the outright favourite

The current outright favourite with SkyBet is Daryl McMahon. At 1/5, he is clearly the bookmaker's main choice and given his current vacant position, there is very little room for negations to fall through.

McMahon left Ebbsfleet United last November and has stayed unemployed ever since. It was certainly a sorry sight for the Reds, as the club were in a strong position despite their play-off agony. After three years with the club, he left via 'mutual consent', much to the disappointment of owner Dr Abdulla Al Humaidi.

Although the Englishman's experience is primarily at National League level, we have seen managers make the step up in the past. If the betting odds are anything to go by, McMahon looks destined to be Macclesfield's next boss.

Other names in the hat

Behind McMahon in the odds is Darren Currie. SkyBet currently have the Barnet manager at 7/1 to be appointed at Moss Rose. The Bees have made a relatively strong start to the new season, but the Silkmen would be seen as a natural step up, from Currie's point of view.

It won't come as a surprise to many to see Whitaker also in the run-in. The former midfielder was made the club's caretaker manager for a second time in his career yesterday, following Campbell's resignation. At 10/1 though, his chances appear slim for the time being.

Ex Port Vale manager Neil Aspin is currently priced at 20/1, with the Englishman being jobless since last January. The former Leeds United defender does have managerial experience in League Two though, but his large price puts him down as a big underdog to take the job.

Both Mark Kennedy and Richard Money also come in at 20/1 with SkyBet. Both men were reportedly on Macclesfield's shortlist, but it would be considered a big shock should either figure now find themselves in the hot seat.

Inevitably, other names are floating around the mix too. Both David Flitcroft and Harry Kewell have been linked with a move to Moss Rose but at prices of 25/1, their chances also look relatively short.
