Despite speculation linking him to the Liverpool managerial position, Amorim remains focused on Sporting’s upcoming games this season and is content at the club. The 39-year-old has become the top choice in the bookmakers’ list to take over as Liverpool’s next permanent manager after Xabi Alonso decided to stay at Bayer Leverkusen next season. Liverpool and Bayern Munich are now searching for alternative options as Alonso was their preferred candidate. While there is interest from the Premier League, Amorim has hinted that he might stay at Sporting, emphasizing his pride in managing the club, his existing contract, and his happiness with the current situation. Other potential candidates for the Liverpool job include Roberto De Zerbi, Julian Nagelsmann, and current assistant boss Pep Lijnders. Amorim has a release clause in his contract valued at €15m (£12.8m) this summer, decreasing to €10m (£8.5m) in 2025. Klopp expressed understanding for Alonso’s decision to stay at Leverkusen, recognizing his success at the club and his early managerial achievements.
