Amorim Talks “Not Positive”


The saga surrounding Ruben Amorim’s managerial future takes another turn.

News emerged yesterday that West Ham held talks with Amorim, appealing to him as a potential successor to the probable departure of David Moyes. This ignited excitement amongst West Ham fans yearning for a modern, attacking style of play.

However, the story took a twist when reports surfaced that Amorim might also be considering Liverpool as a possible destination to replace Jurgen Klopp. This revelation raised eyebrows amongst both fanbases.

Portuguese journalist Pedro Sepulveda confirmed Amorim’s visit to London for talks with both clubs. While details are scarce, Sepulveda suggests the West Ham meeting “was not positive.”

Sepulveda offered some comfort to Liverpool fans, stating they “won’t be missing out to West Ham” regarding Amorim. His cryptic message hinted at a potential deal with Liverpool being more likely.

With Amorim perhaps out of the picture, West Ham will likely turn their attention to other managerial candidates, with Julen Lopetegui being a possible option. However, Amorim’s profile had generated significant fan enthusiasm, making any replacement feel like a lesser choice.

Amorim himself recently downplayed rumours of talks with Liverpool, emphasising his focus on winning the Portuguese title with Sporting. His next move remains shrouded in mystery.

    A bit strnage for a manger close to winning the title to suddenly get on a place to talk to one/possibly two other clubs?
