Sportsbet has installed former Serbian coach Slavoljub Muslin as second favourite to take over as coach of the Socceroos.

Former Socceroo striker Graham Arnold remains firm favourite though at $1.90 with the online bookmaker.

Muslin has been added to the market and is $3.00 to lead Australia to next year’s World Cup in Russia.

German great Jurgen Klinsmann has also been touted as a possible contender and is a $18 outsider.

Former Socceroo coach Guus Hiddink has eased from $8.50 to $10 while another ex-Australian player, Tony Popovic, has also eased from $6.00 out to $10.

“Muslin and Klinsmann are big names to throw their hat into the ring. But Aussies are pretty patriotic and at this stage Arnold is the only one punters want and he probably deserves to get the nod for the coaching job,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
