Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been made favourite by bookmakers to succeed David Moyes if the current boss is the next man to face the chop.
It would be a complete U-turn for the now club ambassador, who previously told fans at Old Trafford to "stand by your new manager."
Moyes has seen his odds shorten dramatically to be the next manager to be sacked, following an influx of bets made after their 2-0 defeat to Greek champions Olympiakos in the Last-16 first-leg tie of the UEFA Champions League last night.
David Moyes has seen his United side endure a terrible season in his first term in charge, with them seemingly relinquishing their Premier League crown after falling 15 points behind leaders Chelsea.
They also may not be in the Champions League next season as 4th spot is occupied by rivals Liverpool, who are 11 points in front.
Sir Alex Ferguson managed the reds for an astonishing 26 trophy-laden years. Most notably, Fergie never once finished lower than 3rd in Premier League history.
The former Everton boss confessed that last night was a bad night for the red devils, stating that:
"It was our worst performance in Europe, for sure. We never really got into it. We didn't derserve anything. We never got to grip with things," he said.
"We came in with a good mindset but it didn't show today. We have a shot but we didn't offer anything. I take responsibility."
