Florian Plettenberg appears to have confirmed a recent update on Ruben Amorim’s future amid ongoing Liverpool links.

The renowned Sky Germany journalist tweeted ‘👀✔️’ underneath @LFCTransferRoom’s tweet on X (formerly Twitter), relaying one claim from Renascenca.

The outlet asserted the Portuguese coach had informed Sporting’s president, Federico Varandas, about Liverpool’s interest in the interest of kickstarting the search for a potential successor.

The German reporter had inspired a series of relative rebuttals from journalists in England and Portugal over his claim that the ex-Benfica star had made a ‘verbal agreement’ with the Merseysiders.

Sources close to Liverpool have indicated that the search is far from finalised, even if the 39-year-old is an appreciated quantity.
