Tottenham Hotspur plans to appoint Ruben Amorim (38) as Sporting manager.
Portugal’s Hekord reported on the 3rd (Korean time), “Tottenham is looking for a manager for the next season and will meet with manager Amorim Sporting. The talks will be held after the end of the 2022-23 season.”
He added, “The two matches in the Champions League group stage and the Europa League round of 16 match between Sporting and Arsenal piqued interest in manager Amorim.”
Tottenham sacked manager Antonio Conte during the 2022-23 season. He then appointed assistant coach Christian Stellini as acting manager, only to be sacked again in a humiliating 6-1 loss to Newcastle United. It is currently managed by acting manager Ryan Mason.
With only four games remaining in the season, it is difficult to appoint a new manager. Therefore, we are looking for a new manager to lead the team from next season. The one who has recently risen rapidly is director Julian Nagelsmann, but no significant progress has been confirmed yet.
Meanwhile, a new candidate emerged. This is Sporting’s manager Amorim, who faced off against them in the group stage of the European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) this season. Tottenham lost 0-2 away at Sporting and drew 1-1 at home. It was definitely a tough opponent.
Director Amorim is a young leader who cannot be reached at the age of 38. As a player, he played for a long time with Benfica, winning 11 trophies. After announcing his retirement in 2017, he quickly took the leadership course and began to be recognized for winning the Tassa da Liga (Portuguese League Cup) in the 2019-20 season at Braga.
Amorim then took over the Sporting helm in March 2020. Tried to win. It reached the top in the Primeira Liga (2020-21 season), Tassa da Liga (2020-21 season, 2021-22 season), and Supertasa de Oliveira (Portugal Super Cup 2021). This season, they recorded results such as the runner-up in Tassa da Liga and the quarterfinals of the UEFA Europa League (UEL). ㅋㅋㅋ벳
The main formation is 3-4-3. It is the same tactical form that Tottenham has built over a long period of time. It is well known that he made good use of Pedro Poro, who was transferred through the winter transfer market, and recorded 12 goals and 20 assists in 98 games together.
According to ‘Hecord’, negotiations will be held after the end of the season. Coach Amorim inserted a buyout clause when renewing the contract in November of last year. 20 million euros (about 29.5 billion won) for overseas clubs and 30 million euros (about 44 billion won) for domestic clubs. Tottenham will have to pay 20 million euros to appoint manager Amorim.
