Liverpool to Escalate Search for Manager with 2023/24 Relegation Battle Experience

The revelation that Ruben Amorim, a long-standing managerial target for Liverpool, is engaging in discussions with West Ham United, must have hit the Reds hard, delivering an unexpected and disappointing setback.

While acknowledging the rich history of East Londoners, it’s worth noting that they lack the extensive legacy and prestigious background of the Anfield team. Thus, Amorim’s potential interest in them presents an intriguing turn of events.

This hints at a possible undisclosed strategy by the Hammers that could catch the Premier League off guard, given the apparent lack of clear motivation for the 39-year-old to opt for a move down south.

Regardless, Liverpool seem to be swiftly exploring alternative candidates for the role, with a surprising contender recently coming to light.

Liverpool Considering Thomas Frank as Amorim Alternative

TeamTalk reports that Thomas Frank, the manager of Brentford, is being seriously considered as an alternative option if Amorim chooses to move to the London Stadium.

The Danish manager has demonstrated his prowess in handling teams, both in leadership and strategy.

However, throughout the 2023/24 season, Brentford have grappled with the threat of relegation. Their recent victory against Luton Town may have secured their status in the league.

It remains uncertain whether he can effectively manage a squad with larger egos, a challenge he has yet to face. If Ruben Amorim decides to join West Ham, Liverpool may escalate their pursuit of Frank.

If such a transfer occurs, and only if Mo Salah departs, it will be intriguing to observe if key players like Ivan Toney follow their manager to the north.

Currently, the situation is in its infancy, and no decisions can be confirmed until Ruben Amorim’s future is clarified.
