Ruben Amorim has been managing Sporting CP since 2020

Following the unexpected announcement that Jurgen Klopp will be leaving his position as manager of Liverpool at the end of the current campaign, several well-known and foreseeable names were linked to take over.

The most prominent ones are Roberto de Zerbi and Xabi Alonso, along with a plethora of others that don’t appear very feasible but are nevertheless being connected. But on Saturday, Ruben Amorim, the head coach of Sporting CP, will make a debut.

Since assuming charge in March 2020, the 39-year-old Portuguese coach has completely changed Sporting, and the Lisbon team is presently leading Liga Portugal, ahead of their bitter rivals Benfica.

One could argue that Amorim and Alonso are similarly developing their careers, with Amorim nearing a transfer to a premier European club.

Amorim’s team is well-known for their appealing, adaptable, offensive, possession-based style of football; they typically use a 3-4-3 configuration. Over the last two seasons, he has excelled at player development.

Over the past few years, Liverpool analysts have been observing Sporting a lot to observe centre-back Goncalo Inacio, who has been strongly linked to a move to Anfield.

Amorim, who is shown above during his Benfica playing career, is rumoured to have a €20 million buyout option.

Before moving to Portugal’s capital in 2020, he started his coaching career at SC Braga, where he helped Sporting win their first league championship in 19 years.

They advanced to the Champions League quarterfinals the next year, and they defeated Arsenal convincingly in the last-16 of the Europa League to get to the quarterfinals last season.

In 2020, he claimed the Portuguese League Cup with Braga; in 2021 and 2022, he did the same with Sporting. He reacted as follows when he was speculated mentioned to the Man United position earlier this season:

“I’m not going to make any kind of comment on these situations. We don’t know the future, it depends on the results. Regarding the future, I have an idea for the end of the season but I won’t say it now. But the results and the context take us to something different.”
