Next Liverpool Manager Odds: Ruben Amorim odds-on favourite

Sporting Lisbon boss Ruben Amorim is odds-on at 1/6 to succeed Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager ahead of next season.

Next Liverpool Manager

A popular former player at Anfield, 2010 World Cup winner Xabi Alonso was the early hot favourite to replace Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager at the end of this season, with the Spaniard primed to lead Bayer Leverkusen to their first ever Bundesliga title this term.

However, the 42-year-old has confirmed his intention to remain at Leverkusen for at least another year, prompting Liverpool's managerial search to take a different direction.

Sporting Lisbon's Ruben Amorim has now emerged as the clear frontrunner for the soon-to-be vacant post at Anfield, with the ex-Portugal international midfielder matching Alonso's profile as an up-and-coming coach with an attacking philosophy.

Amorim has turned heads across Europe since guiding Sporting Lisbon to their first Primeira Liga title in 19 years in 2021, with the typically third force in Portuguese football currently on track to be crowned champions again this year.

Aged 39, former Benfica player Amorim is a young manager with striking charisma and ambition, with his fluency in English another string to his bow as Liverpool's hierarchy seek to fine-tune their search for Klopp's successor.

Roberto De Zerbi is another candidate whose chances of getting the Liverpool job have been aided by the news of Alonso's expected stay at Leverkusen, with the Italian having received widespread plaudits for his work with Brighton in the Premier League.

Another fresh, innovative tactical mind, De Zerbi is regarded as one of the most promising managers around at the moment having been singled out for praise by none other than Pep Guardiola.

Liverpool could face a potential fight for De Zerbi's services, however, with the ex-Shakhtar Donestk and Sassuolo boss reportedly also firmly on the radar of Bayern Munich and Barcelona, who are also searching for new managers ahead of next season.
