Ex-Manchester City and Newcastle United man emerges as new favourite for Bradford City job
It has been nearly a month since Mark Hughes was axed by the Bantams following an unspectacular start to the season.
Various favourites for the role have emerged since and the latest is ex-Premier League star Joey Barton.
The 41-year-old was recently sacked by Bristol Rovers after nearly three years at the helm.
He had previously led Fleetwood Town following his retirement from playing.
BetVictor are offering odds of 6/4 for Barton to become the new Bantams boss.
He sits narrowly ahead of ex-Milton Keynes Dons head coach Graham Alexander, who has been priced at 5/2.
Robbie Fowler, recently dismissed by Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Qadsiah, is third favourite at 10/1.
Bradford will be led into this weekend’s FA Cup clash with Wycombe Wanderers by Mark Trueman.
