In a press conference on Thursday, Sporting manager Ruben Amorim claimed he’s making his position available this summer because the Lions are failing to qualify for the Champions League.
That doesn’t mean he’s leaving the club, since president Frederico Varandas has a very good relationship with him. Still, that made things awkward, especially with him being recently linked to Tottenham Hotspur.
This situation gets more interesting following an exclusive story from outlet Leonino.
They feature a piece claiming Amorim had a meeting with an agent who has big knowledge of English football, and with that conversation resulting in ‘a thousand wonders’, his exit from Sporting has ‘gained strength’.
That story recalls that the manager has recently been linked to Tottenham, and with his meeting leaving him with his ‘mouth watering’, his move to the Premier League became a real possibility.
On Friday, Spurs target Arne Slot announced his contract renewal with Feyenoord, blocking any chances of a move to England this season.
Leonino then came up with a new story pointing out that Amorim’s name gets stronger in the race for the managerial position at Tottenham.
