Liverpool deny Ruben Amorim offer as club continues search for Klopp successor

Sporting CP manager Ruben Amorim has not been offered the Liverpool vacancy, according to James Pearce

Reports suggesting the Portuguese manager has been offered the Liverpool job appear wide of the mark. 

Per The Athletic reporter, senior sources at the club have been adamant that no such approach has been made, and there’s no verbal agreement in place.

Amorim’s remarkable achievements with Sporting CP have captured the attention of Europe’s elite. 

His first season saw him deliver their long-awaited league title, ending a 19-year drought. Sporting currently sit comfortably atop the table again, with a four-point gap on Lisbon rivals Benfica, and they have a game in hand. They are also in the final of the Taca de Portugal. 

These successes have put the young manager into the spotlight, and several European clubs, including Barcelona and Chelsea, are after his signature.

Liverpool are on the hunt for Jurgen Klopp’s successor, and Amorim is a strong contender based on the club’s data research led by Will Spearman. 

His attacking brand of football aligns with the philosophy instilled by Klopp, and his ability to develop young talent would bring a seamless continuation of the club’s strategy.

However, Liverpool are known for conducting thorough searches. Despite Amorim’s impressive resume, the club is still actively evaluating other viable candidates. 

Credible sources close to the club have now refuted claims of an advanced agreement with Amorim.

The Portuguese manager himself has also remained coy. He refused to guarantee his future at Sporting, and his comments suggest a desire to continue his project there, at least until the end of the season.

Liverpool fans will be desperate to have a new coach in place soon, but they may have to exercise some patience.

Amorim remains a frontrunner, but the club is determined to make the right long-term decision and is exploring all options before making an official offer.
