“Still Discussing” – Fabrizio Romano Shares Latest Update as Liverpool Look to Appoint Next Manager

Liverpool are diligently considering their options for the appointment of a new manager for the upcoming season.

Following Jurgen Klopp’s departure after a distinguished nine-year tenure, the Reds face the formidable challenge of finding a suitable successor to the esteemed German tactician.

Former Liverpool player Xabi Alonso emerged as a contender for the managerial position. However, Alonso ultimately opted to continue his tenure with Bayer Leverkusen, thereby removing himself from consideration for the role at Anfield.

In a report dated April 5, Santi Aouna, a journalist for Foot Mercato, claimed that Liverpool have commenced discussions with Sporting boss Ruben Amorim, facilitated by his intermediary, and the 39-year-old manager is willing to make the move to Anfield during the upcoming summer transfer window.

As per information shared by Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool are currently evaluating several candidates for the managerial position, with Amorim being highlighted as a primary contender in the mix.

Romano noted that discussions within Liverpool’s hierarchy are ongoing, emphasising that no final decision has been reached at this point.

Additionally, it was mentioned that Brighton manager Roberto de Zerbi was previously under consideration as a potential option, although Romano expressed unawareness of any significant progress regarding his candidacy.

What Has Romano Said About the Potential Next Liverpool Manager

Romano wrote on Daily Briefing: “Again, I keep repeating I’m not aware of any contacts between Roberto De Zerbi and Liverpool – at least not so far. It’s completely quiet on that one.

“On Ruben Amorim, he remains the main name on Liverpool’s list for the role – but he is not the only one. Nothing is done or decided yet.

“Liverpool are still discussing the situation internally but they have made contact to be aware of Amorim’s situation, as reported days ago.”

The Reds should avoid making any impulsive decisions, a stance the club are unlikely to deviate from, especially given the established structure.

Michael Edwards and Richard Hughes will oversee the search for the next manager, leveraging metrics and data to identify the ideal candidate.

Presently, the primary focus lies on the ongoing season, with Liverpool engaged in an enthralling title race. Following their 3-1 victory over Sheffield United at Anfield on Thursday night, the Reds currently lead the Premier League table and aim to sustain their winning streak as they face Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Furthermore, Liverpool remain in pursuit of Europa League success this season. While the club continues its meticulous selection process behind closed doors, any announcement regarding the new manager is likely to be deferred until Klopp’s departure is official, to prevent potential disruptions to the team’s performance for the remainder of the season.
