Liverpool View Ruben Amorim as Potential Jürgen Klopp Replacement

According to Longari, Alonso is Liverpool’s top choice to replace Klopp.

However, as Alonso’s reputation grows with Bayer Leverkusen leading the Bundesliga, Liverpool must consider alternatives in case a deal falls through.

Longari points out an intriguing possibility: Amorim, the current head of Sporting CP, is reportedly catching Liverpool’s attention as an alternative to Alonso.

The Italian journalist wrote on X (previously known as Twitter): “Liverpool evaluations in progress for the bench. Many candidates in the running, the first on the list of Liverpool is Xabi Alonso.

“Among the alternatives taken into consideration by Liverpool, the name of Ruben Amorim currently managing Sporting stands out.”

The 39-year-old’s side are presently positioned second in the current Primeira Liga season, accumulating 49 points, trailing Benfica by two points with one match yet to be played.

Amorim, in fact, steered Sporting CP to clinch the Primeira Liga championship in 2021, marking the club’s first league title triumph since 2002.

The Portuguese manager has overseen 207 matches, securing victory in 146 of them, while 28 ended in draws and 33 in losses.

Amorim’s teams have consistently averaged 2.25 points per game across these 207 fixtures. They have netted a total of 440 goals and conceded only 186.

Hailing from Lisbon, the tactician often favours a 3-4-3 formation, reminiscent of Liverpool’s setup when Klopp positions Trent Alexander-Arnold in midfield.

In the event that Alonso cannot be persuaded to return to Anfield, Amorim presents a highly enticing alternative option, to say the least.
