ARNE SLOT ENTERS RACE TO REPLACE KLOPP

There’s a new name among the favourites to be the next Liverpool manager. It comes after new reports that Ruben Amorim isn’t exactly a certainty.

Slot has enjoyed a great time with the Dutch side after taking over in 2021. Feyenoord were a fifth-placed team when he got the job but he quickly got them to third - and to the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League final.

LATEST RUBEN AMORIM REPORTS DRAW PORTUGUESE SCORN

One journalist says there’s ‘no chance’ that recent reports about Ruben Amorim come to fruition. The Sporting boss is linked with Liverpool.

Pedro Sepúlveda has moved to dismiss talk that Ruben Amorim could stay with Sporting CP beyond this season. Amorim has been linked with a move away from the club over the last six months, particularly to Liverpool.

But Sporting President, Federico Varandas reportedly feels he can convince Amorim to remain in place. After all, the manager won Sporting's first title since 2002 with their 2021 triumph and is now on the brink of becoming their first boss since the 1960s to win it twice.
