MANCHESTER, England, April 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bookie Fred Done has once again paid out early on Manchester United winning the Premier League.
The Red Devils today beat Everton and the bookie has decided it's all over even though Manchester United have still got to play both Chelsea and Arsenal in their final four games. So anyone who backed United to win the league can collect their winnings.
The Betfred boss said,
"It's costing me 300 hundred grand but I'm delighted because my beloved United are over the finishing line in my opinion. Arsenal nor Chelsea can't catch them this time!"
Fred Done was the first ever bookmaker to pay out early back in March 1998 when Manchester United were 12 points clear of Arsenal, only for the Gunners to win the title by one point.
"Back then Fergie went mad with me and told me never to do it again, but don't worry Sir Alex you are home and hosed for a record nineteenth title."
Betfred make Manchester United the 15/8 favourites to retain the title next season and make it 20 top flight championships.
