Pochettino, Rodgers in bookies' frame for Man City job

Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is emerging as a top candidate for Pep Guardiola's job at Manchester City.

Rumours have been rife that the Spaniard, 49, will move on if the Citizens lose their appeal against a two-season Champions League ban - something he is quick to deny.

But Guardiola's contract expires in just over 12 months' time with talks set to take place over a possible extension.

Should the job become available, Ladbrokes have Pochettino down as 5/2 favourite for the Etihad hotseat.

Just behind is Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers and Wolves' Nuno Espirito Santo, at 5/1 and 8/1 respectively.

One interesting potential contender is Mikel Arteta, who spent three years in Manchester as Guardiola's assistant and is back at 14/1.
