Liverpool may have used Ruben Amorim as a decoy as a bold managerial choice arises.

Liverpool is reportedly considering Ruben Amorim as a potential replacement for the departing Jurgen Klopp. The Sporting boss had emerged as a frontrunner for the role, but recent developments show Feyenoord manager Arne Slot’s odds being slashed by bookmakers, signaling a potential shift in Liverpool’s search. Former candidates such as Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso and Germany manager Julian Nagelsmann are said to be out of the running.

According to The Athletic’s David Ornstein, Liverpool may opt for a bold choice rather than a popular one in their selection process. Recent reports indicate that Amorim’s potential appointment at Liverpool is unlikely, with talks of him joining West Ham to succeed David Moyes. Meanwhile, Slot, who led Feyenoord to the Eredivisie title last season and a Dutch Cup triumph, has emerged as a strong candidate for the Anfield role.

The Dutchman is reportedly eager for the opportunity to manage a club of Liverpool’s stature. Jurgen Klopp’s impending departure follows a successful tenure that saw him lead Liverpool to various titles, including the Premier League and Champions League. Klopp expressed his love for the club and supporters while announcing his decision to step down, citing the need to recharge and the emotional connection he has with the team and fans.
