Klopp successor: He is Liverpool's preferred candidate

Liverpool FC has apparently decided to look for a successor to Jürgen Klopp. The preferred candidate comes from Portugal.

Xabi Alonso, Roberto De Zerbi or Antonio Conte. Most recently, many coaches at Liverpool FC were considered successors to the outgoing Jürgen Klopp. As various media reported (including Sky and the Portuguese newspaper Record), the English have chosen a preferred candidate.


Ruben Amorim is the name of the man who will be on the Liverpool sidelines in the future. The Portuguese currently coaches Sporting CP and led the Lisbon team to their first league title since 2021 in 2002. Things are looking good this year too, and Sporting is in the cup final. The 39-year-old Amorim had recently avoided committing to the club.

Negotiations with Sporting

However, there is a catch. Amorim has a contract in Lisbon, which is why Liverpool also has to negotiate with the club. As a professional, Amorim was active for his youth club Benfica for almost his entire career. He has also played 14 international matches for Portugal. Recently there were also rumors that FC Bayern Munich was interested in Amorim as a coach.
