BREAKING NEWS: Announced by Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool face a tough task to appoint a new manager, as reports suggest that Xabi Alonso has turned down the opportunity to take charge at Anfield. The Spaniard, who was heavily linked with the job, has reportedly informed the club that he will not be taking the role. This leaves Liverpool with two other candidates in the running for the position, with “sources” claiming that interviews will be held soon.

Footballwave sources have indicated that Ruben Amorim and Julian Nagelsmann are being viewed as potential successors to Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

Amorim, currently managing Sporting Lisbon, and Nagelsmann, in charge of the German national team, are reportedly being considered alongside Xabi Alonso as potential candidates for the managerial position at Liverpool.

Amorim, aged 39, has caught Liverpool’s attention due to Sporting’s impressive performance this season and his notable success in developing the team in recent years. Sporting currently leads the Portuguese top flight by one point, with a game in hand over second-place Benfica. Additionally, they have progressed to the last-16 stage of the Europa League. It is anticipated that Amorim will be interviewed for the Liverpool job.

Nagelsmann, whose most recent club managerial role was at Bayern Munich, was dismissed in March last year before assuming the role of Germany’s national team manager. His contract is set to expire after this summer’s European Championships. However, one potential hurdle is that he would be unavailable to oversee pre-season training at any club until July.

While Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou was initially considered a potential replacement, sources have indicated that he will decline any offers to leave this summer and is not regarded as a viable candidate by Liverpool. Similarly, Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi has been under consideration but is not ranked as highly as Alonso, Nagelsmann, or Amorim.

Following their controversial 1-0 away victory against Nottingham Forest on Saturday, which propelled them to the top of the Premier League table, Liverpool are scheduled to face Sparta Praha in the Europa League last-16 on Thursday evening.
