London: A leading bookmaker suspended betting on the next Premier League manager to be sacked amid a rush of wagers on Monday that Garry Monk would be dismissed by Swansea City.
"Monk was 1/4 to be the next manager to go, yet that did not dissuade punters desperate to back the Swansea manager," said a spokesman for William Hill.
A 3-0 home defeat by surprise league leaders Leicester City on Saturday was the Welsh club`s fourth loss in five games and left them in 15th position.
They are now one point above the relegation places.
Monk, 36, is a former Swansea captain who played for the club for 10 years.
He was appointed manager in succession to Michael Laudrup in February 2014.
