Liverpool deny Amorim offer as club continues search for Klopp successor

Sporting CP manager Ruben Amorim has not been offered the Liverpool vacancy (h/t The Athletic’s James Pearce).

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

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 Benfica and a game in hand. They are also in the final of the Taca de Portugal

Several European clubs, including Barcelona and Chelsea, would like to appoint Amorim.

Liverpool are searching 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 Klopp’s philosophy, 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.

The Portuguese manager 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 front-runner, but the club is determined to make the right long-term decision and is exploring all options before making an official offer.
