Ruben Amorim gives CRYPTIC update on Sporting future amid Liverpool contract claims

Amorim refuses to rule out a move

"It wasn't talking about the future, I always want to answer but there are things I can't answer," he said (via A Bola). "Last year we came in fourth place and I thought I had to do something different, it couldn't be the same.”
