Online bookmaker has installed Sydney FC coach Graham Arnold as the dominant $3.50 favourite to take over from Ange Postecoglou as Socceroos coach.

  • Graham Arnold the $3.50 favourite to take over the Socceroos
  • Guus Hiddink $8.00 for a fairytale return

Guus Hiddink is second in line for a return to the job at $8.00, and would also be a popular choice with Aussie football fans.

Wanderers coach Josep Gombau is right up there in the market at $10, while Ante Milicic ($13) has the advantage of already being in the Socceroos set-up.

Does anyone at the FFA have Sir Alex Ferguson’s number? He’s a $101 outsider.

“Four of the top 6 in the market are Australians so a home-grown successor appears most likely. The timing couldn’t be more perfect for Graham Arnold, adding an FFA Cup trophy to a Championship and Premiers’ Plate,” said’s Christian Jantzen.
