Jurgen Klopp set to step down as manager of the Reds after end of season

According to reports, The Reds have reached a “verbal agreement in principle” with Ruben Amorim to take over as coach of Liverpool.

Beginning with the upcoming season, the 39-year-old former Portugal international is prepared to take on an exciting new challenge in England, even though he is presently at Sporting. After it became apparent that current Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso would not be available this summer, Amorim became a major priority for those at Anfield.

Amorim and Liverpool have informally agreed to a three-year agreement, as reported by Sky Deutschland. On Merseyside, the paperwork is awaiting his signature, as the Premier League’s biggest teams are rumoured to be finalising their talks with Sporting.

Amorim has caught the attention of Bayern Munich as well, who are getting ready to part ways with Thomas Tuchel. According to reports, Chelsea inquired about the Portuguese’s possible availability after the current season, given that Mauricio Pochettino is facing unsettling doubts about his future at Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool, who are bidding adieu to German coach Klopp, appear to have won the battle for Amorim’s expertise. After nearly nine years in charge of the Reds, he will be leaving in the summer, and there’s still a chance he may leave Amorim with a Premier League title-winning team.

Prior to the Spaniard’s decision to remain in Germany for at least another campaign, Liverpool turned their attention elsewhere.

Amorim would be a little risky to take over as manager at Anfield, but all teams will have to take a chance on an inexperienced boss come summertime due to the general dearth of experienced managers available. Thomas Tuchel, who will leave Bayern Munich in the summer, is the only real alternative for a manager who has won multiple titles; nevertheless, due to his lacklustre season at the Allianz Arena, his reputation has somewhat declined this year.Portuguese football writer Tom Kundert has also called Amorim a “miracle worker,” stating that he possesses the necessary skills to become the next greatest manager in international football.
