Ruben Amorim is touted as one of the most promising young managers in Europe and a replacement for Antonio Conte at Spurs but he is comfortable at Sporting for now
Ruben Amorim has denied rumors linking him to Tottenham and has confirmed that he intends to continue as the head coach of Sporting CP. This comes amid speculation that Antonio Conte may not continue as Spurs manager when his contract expires at the end of the season.
Despite leading Spurs into the Champions League, Conte has not yet been able to deliver a trophy during his tenure, which has lasted less than two years.
Amorim one of the candidates to replace Conte
Nottingham Forest’s Steve Cooper and Roberto De Zerbi, Brighton and Hove Albion boss, have both dismissed rumors linking them to Tottenham. Ruben Amorim has gained attention as one of the most promising young coaches in Europe.
Amorim made a name for himself at Braga before taking over Sporting in March 2020. He then won the Primeira Liga title in his first full season. Despite being fourth in the current campaign after finishing runners-up to Porto in the previous one, the 38-year-old Amorim is still highly respected in the industry.
Asked about reports of Tottenham’s interest at a press conference on Saturday, Amorim said: “My objective is that I have a contract with Sporting for another three years and in my head is to be champion at least once more in those three years.
“If we win two championships in that time it’s a step forward. I’m interested in showing results and not what is said abroad.”
Amorim was quoted in Portuguese media on Saturday as saying: “I’ve always been treated well in Portugal, they follow my day-to-day; abroad they watch European games and titles, not the daily context.
“I’ve always felt recognized. When I’m good, I’m the greatest. My goal is to get back to being very good.”
