Ruben Amorim gives clear statement on his future after Liverpool turn tables

Posted by

Ruben Amorim has committed his future to Sporting Lisbon after failed talks with West Ham.

The 39-year-old was forced into a public apology to his fellow staff after reportedly attempting to apply pressure on Liverpool by engaging in talks with the London-based outfit.

Portuguese football insider Pedro Sepulveda shared the head coach’s comments on X (formerly Twitter). He went on to add that the former Braga boss is at the top of Chelsea’s shortlist to replace Mauricio Pochettino should the Argentine depart this summer.

A 2-0 win over rivals Tottenham to bring the Blues within two points of the European spots may have bought the 52-year-old some time.

Liverpool have avoided managerial mess

Just a quick glance at Bayern Munich will tell Liverpool fans all they need to know.

On top of that, we’ve managed to avoid a prolonged ‘will they, won’t they?’ situation with Amorim – one well-handled by our key decision-makers ahead of the summer. Instead, Feyenoord’s Arne Slot is now set to link up with us ahead of the 2024/25 season.

Now we just need to sit back and try and enjoy the final few weeks of Jurgen Klopp’s reign as Liverpool boss.

Let’s give the 56-year-old a send-off he’ll forever treasure!
