He said ” forget about Xabi Alonso and Pep Lijnders they are both good but if you want the legacy that Jurgen Klopp will be leaving behind to continue appoint Amorim”. Amorim has been praised for his work with Sporting, leading them to the Portuguese league title last season. He is said to be a master tactician, and he is known for his attacking style of play. With the right backing, Amorim could be the perfect man to continue from where Jurgen Klopp stops. Liverpool Should Forget About Xabi Alonso and Pep Lijnders – Amorim Is the Man for the Job”.


History seems to be repeating itself, reminiscent of the situation back in 2004 when a young Portuguese manager caught the attention of both Liverpool and Chelsea. At that time, Chelsea emerged victorious in securing Jose Mourinho’s services, who then played a pivotal role in the club’s success.

Fast forward to the present, and once again, two Premier League rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea, find themselves eyeing the same manager – Ruben Amorim of Sporting CP. The 39-year-old, formerly of Lisbon rivals Benfica, ended Sporting’s 19-year title drought in his debut full season as manager. Currently, his team trails the top spot by just two points with a game in hand. Sporting notably knocked Arsenal out of the Europa League last season and are set to face Atalanta in the round-of-16 this season.

Liverpool reportedly considers Amorim a potential successor to Jurgen Klopp, who is set to depart at the end of the season, while Chelsea has added him to their wishlist following recent struggles, including a Carabao Cup loss to Liverpool. Chelsea’s inconsistency has raised concerns, with the team closer to the relegation zone than the top four and rumors swirling about discontent among star players.

Amorim’s appeal lies in several factors. He has a defined playing philosophy, a track record of talent development, and a strong self-belief. Sporting’s £8 million investment in prying him away from Sporting Braga after just 13 matches as a manager underscores his promise. Linked with Barcelona as well, Amorim favors a back-three system and emphasizes the importance of specific player profiles in key areas.

His approach involves utilizing ball-playing midfielders in a double pivot, making wing-backs integral to the attacking structure, and valuing dominant defenders. Amorim also gives youth opportunities, as seen in Sporting’s debuts for several young talents. Despite facing challenges, he has kept Sporting competitive, showcasing his ability to adapt and overcome adversity.

While untested in the Premier League, Amorim’s adaptability and track record suggest he could thrive in English football. Unlike past Portuguese managers who struggled in the Premier League, Amorim appears poised to make a smoother transition, offering a blend of tactical acumen, player development skills, and resilience.
