Angel Maria Villar, the interim UEFA president, and general secretary Theodore Theodoridis are bookmaker William Hill's favourites at 6-1 to replace Michel Platini as head of the European soccer's governing body.

Michael van Praag and Giancarlo Abete, presidents of the Dutch and Italian football associations respectively, are also front-runners at 10-1 with former Manchester United chief executive David Gill an outside chance at 16-1.

Frenchman Platini is to resign as UEFA president after losing a top-level appeal against a ban for ethics violations on Monday.

"There will be a number of candidates up for the role of president and this looks as though it will be a hotly-contested race just as the FIFA one was," William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said.
