Premier League Rival Sends Ruben Amorim Message as Liverpool Set to Appoint the Sporting Lisbon Manager

Liverpool appear to be on the brink of reaching an agreement with Sporting Lisbon manager Ruben Amorim.

Reports circulating across Europe suggest that Liverpool are nearing the conclusion of their quest for Jurgen Klopp’s successor, with increasing speculation surrounding a potential move for Ruben Amorim.

Throughout the season, the Sporting Lisbon coach has garnered attention from top clubs due to his aggressive playing style and consistent success in Portuguese football.

Following a setback with their initial choice, Xabi Alonso, who opted to stay with Bayer Leverkusen in Germany, Liverpool seem determined to secure the services of Amorim.

Currently, Amorim stands out as the preferred candidate, and Liverpool will be delighted to learn that one of their Premier League rivals has already expressed strong support for the 39-year-old.

Pedro Porro, a standout player for Tottenham who had previous experience under Amorim at Sporting, praises the potential Liverpool manager highly.

Porro told Portuguese outlet O Jogo: “Everyone knows what a good coach he is, he does things very well, he’s a great coach.

This week, Sky Sports Germany’s Florian Plettenburg revealed that Liverpool and Sporting are engaged in promising discussions regarding Amorim’s transfer.

Sources suggest that the clubs have reached a ‘verbal agreement’, and despite Barcelona’s interest, Amorim is inclined towards a move to Merseyside.

A contract extension until 2027, featuring performance-based bonuses, is anticipated to be offered.

Liverpool have emerged as contenders for Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi, who boasts prior experience in the Premier League.

Ahead of the recent Liverpool versus Brighton encounter at Anfield, De Zerbi stirred speculation by hinting at a potential departure from the AMEX Stadium.

Known for his admiration of Pep Guardiola, the Italian manager employs a possession-oriented style of play reminiscent of the Manchester City boss.

In contrast, Liverpool’s identity under Klopp has been defined by aggressive pressing and swift counterattacks during his tenure of nine years.
