Amorim approach means West Ham have changed course


West Ham United’s pursuit of Ruben Amorim, the coveted Sporting CP manager, receives a spark of hope thanks to journalist David Ornstein’s comments.

Amorim, a 39-year-old tactician, is expected to leave Portugal at the end of the season. West Ham and Liverpool are among the clubs vying for his signature.

Ornstein, while acknowledging the unlikelihood of Amorim choosing West Ham as his top destination, reveals a key detail that will excite Hammers fans: the West Ham project holds some appeal for the Portuguese manager. This suggests there’s still a chance for the London club to turn things around.

West Ham’s interest in Amorim stems from their potential need for a new manager when David Moyes‘ contract expires at season’s end. Amorim’s impressive track record, including a league title, multiple cup wins, and the current dominance of the Portuguese league with Sporting CP, makes him a highly desirable candidate.

The attacking, possession-based style Amorim employs is another factor that resonates with West Ham fans. Many have voiced their desire for a more proactive approach compared to the conservative tactics often used by Moyes.

While the road to securing Amorim remains challenging, Ornstein’s insights offer a glimmer of hope. The door is not completely closed, and West Ham can still make a case for their project to convince the talented manager to join them.
