‘Confirms our news’: Sky reporter drops managerial update to make Liverpool fans sit up & take notice

Posted by

Roberto De Zerbi will reportedly be Bayern Munich’s next favourite target should they be unable to recruit Xabi Alonso.

Sky German’s Florian Plettenberg shared the update on X (formerly Twitter) – as was confirmed by German outlet SportBILD – this morning.

The Merseysiders also admire the Brighton & Hove Albion manager, though Ruben Amorim is thought to be higher on the priority list.

Liverpool could have a clear run at Amorim

It’s worth noting that Manchester United have also been linked with the Sporting Lisbon boss. That said, one might reasonably venture that our project will prove far more appealing than the current mess over at Old Trafford.

Reassuringly, we otherwise appear to have a relatively clear run at the 39-year-old should we also be unable to convince Alonso to end his relationship with Bayer Leverkusen.

The Spanish head coach has yet to make public any decision over his future whilst his side competes for a first Bundesliga title in its history.

Leverkusen could yet also box off further silverware in the Europa League and DFB Pokal.

Does De Zerbi have better merits?

The obvious differentiator between De Zerbi and Amorim is Premier League experience.

Albeit, it’s worth pointing out that a move to Anfield would still represent a seismic jump for the former Shakhtar Donetsk boss.

It’s far more likely to come down to how the pair comparatively performs on internal data tests.
