Fulham star Joao Palhinha believes that Amorim would have no problems in winning over the support of Liverpool supporters if he joins the club. Sporting boss Amorim is reportedly the favorite to succeed Jurgen Klopp at the end of the season.

Klopp announced in January that he is set to leave Liverpool at the end of the season due to feeling ‘running out of energy’ at the club. This led the club to search for a replacement, with former midfielder Xabi Alonso initially being earmarked as their top target.

However, Alonso opted to remain at Bayer Leverkusen, leading Liverpool to turn their attention to Amorim. The 39-year-old has impressed at Sporting and his attacking, expansive brand of football feels like a natural transition from Klopp’s high-energy, pressing style.

There are reports suggesting confidence in Liverpool’s negotiations with Amorim. Fulham star Palhinha, who worked with Amorim at both Braga and Sporting, is confident that his ex-boss has what it takes to thrive at Liverpool, should the move happen.

He believes Amorim is a big option to replace Jurgen Klopp but maintains uncertainty about the outcome. Palhinha points out that Amorim is used to coping with the pressure of coaching at a club fighting for titles in Portugal.

He also highlights Amorim’s tactical preferences, such as playing with three at the back and maintaining possession. He believes that Amorim’s coaching style would be a good fit for Liverpool given the adaptability of their players.

The positive review from Palhinha will be encouraging for Reds supporters. It remains to be seen whether Amorim’s potential move to Liverpool will come to fruition, but his coaching style and ability to handle pressure have garnered confidence and hope for a successful transition if he were to join the club.
