Roberto Di Matteo: Bookies favourite for West Brom job

Clarke was sacked on Saturday night after the Baggies' 1-0 defeat to Cardiff - their fourth defeat in a row which leaves them two points above the relegation zone.

It is understood West Brom do not have a successor in mind and that an appointment is not imminent.

Joint-assistant head coach Keith Downing will assume control of first-team affairs while the club searches for a successor.

That search began on Sunday with Di Matteo, who spent almost two years in charge at The Hawthorns between 2009 and 2011, the favourite at 5/2 with Sky Bet ahead of ex-Fulham boss Martin Jol (4/1).

Former Schalke boss Ralf Rangnick is 8/1 with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 10/1.

The man who oversaw the final straw as far as the West Brom board was concerned - Cardiff boss Malky Mackay - is down at 25/1.

Owen Coyle, recently sacked by Wigan, is down at 33/1 along with Ian Holloway, who left Crystal Palace earlier this season.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
