Liverpool look like appointing Ruben Amorim as their new manager, following recent developments on the managerial merry-go-round. The 39-year-old has been at Sporting since 2020, leaving Braga for a managerial transfer worth £8.65 million, becoming then the third-most expensive boss ever. He guided the Lisbon outfit to their first title in 19 years and has been one of the most impressive gaffers on the continent for four seasons, now. It was believed that Liverpool were looking at both Amorim and Roberto De Zerbi – but following updates from from respected sources, it looks like the two-horse race has been halved.

However, I’m not aware of anything concrete so far on this one, also because Inzaghi is fully focused on Inter and on winning the Serie A title.” These reports have since been corroborated by Sky Sports, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is leaving at the end of the season (Image credit: Getty Images) As per Sky Germany, De Zerbi and Julian Nagelsmann are the two leading contenders for the Bayern Munich job, given that Xabi Alonso has ruled himself out. Nagelsmann was sacked from Die Roten almost a year ago.
