Ruben Amorim, the most serious manager to replace Jurgen Klopp. This is what you need to know about him

The decision of Xabi Alonso to remain with Bayer Leverkusen has dealt a blow to Liverpool’s hopes of securing him as Jurgen Klopp’s successor. With Klopp’s impending departure at the end of the season, Alonso had emerged as a frontrunner for the managerial position at Anfield, given his status as a Champions League winner during his playing days with Liverpool. However, his commitment to Leverkusen, where he has overseen an impressive unbeaten streak of 38 games this season, has dashed Liverpool’s aspirations of securing his services.

Alonso’s decision leaves Liverpool searching for alternative candidates to fill the managerial vacancy. Sporting Lisbon coach Ruben Amorim has emerged as the new favorite among bookmakers, ahead of contenders like Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi and Germany boss Julian Nagelsmann. Amorim’s success with Sporting Lisbon, including delivering their first league title in 19 years during the 2020/21 season, has garnered attention and positioned him as a strong candidate for the Liverpool job.

Despite the disappointment of missing out on Alonso, Klopp’s impending departure comes at a time of considerable success for Liverpool. Under Klopp’s stewardship, the club has experienced a transformation both on and off the field, winning their first league title in 30 years in 2020 and lifting the Champions League. Currently, Liverpool sits behind Premier League leaders Arsenal only on goal difference with ten games remaining, highlighting the team’s continued competitiveness under Klopp’s guidance.

As Klopp prepares to bid farewell, he believes he is leaving behind a team well-equipped for success in the future. With a blend of young talent and experienced veterans such as Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk, and Mohamed Salah, Klopp is optimistic about Liverpool’s prospects moving forward. However, the task of succeeding a manager of Klopp’s legendary status may have deterred Alonso from making the leap to Anfield, paving the way for other contenders like Amorim to emerge as potential successors.

Ultimately, Liverpool’s search for Klopp’s successor is crucial in ensuring the club’s continued success. With the Premier League title race heating up and the possibility of a deep run in the Europa League, the appointment of the right manager will be pivotal in shaping the club’s future trajectory. As Liverpool weighs its options, the coming months promise to be a period of transition and anticipation as the club prepares for a new era under a new leader.
