Tottenham set to hold talks with Sporting CP manager Ruben Amorim

According to Portuguese outlet Record, Tottenham Hotspur are set to hold talks with Sporting CP manager Ruben Amorim at the end of the season regarding the managerial vacancy at N17.

The club’s board is reportedly considering a number of options, including the talented Sporting Lisbon boss, Ruben Amorim. Hence, they are set to hold talks at the end of the season to see if he is the right man for the job.

While Amorim is not a household name, he has been making waves in the Portuguese league with Sporting Lisbon, a club that has been experiencing a resurgence under his leadership. This has impressed other European clubs.

Despite being relatively young at 38, Amorim has shown himself to be an adept coach who excels in developing young players. This is particularly important for Tottenham, who have a number of promising young players coming through the ranks.

While Amorim’s success at Sporting Lisbon is undeniable, the question remains whether he can replicate this success at Tottenham. The Premier League is a much more competitive league than the Portuguese league, with all due respect to the latter.

If the talks with Amorim go well, Tottenham will have to trigger his release clause, which is said to be around £17.5m. This is a significant amount of money, but it is a price that one needs to pay to secure a good manager.

Another factor that could work in Tottenham’s favour is their good relationship with Sporting Lisbon. The London club recently signed Pedro Porro from Sporting, and this could help them during negotiations if they decide to make a move for Amorim.

While Amorim is one of the leading contenders for the Tottenham job, he is not the only one. Arne Slot, the current AZ Alkmaar manager, has emerged as another serious contender while Julian Nagelsmann is also in the fray.
