Amorim, PSG’s priority to succeed Pochettino

Ruben Amorim, the 37-year-old coach of Sporting de Portugal, is the favorite to succeed Mauricio Pochettino on the PSG bench. The information, advanced by Foot-Mercato last week and confirmed by Le Parisien this Monday, places the young coach in the orbit of the Parisians after Zidane’s almost definitive no.

The incorporation would be a request from Luis Campos in line with Antero Henrique, who has worked in the shadow of Qatar since he left in 2019 as sports director and who has become a trusted man of the Emir for his unconditional work in the sovereign Arab state .

Amorim, who won the Primeira Liga with Sporting de Portugal in 2021 and qualified for the Champions League round of 16 this season, has a release clause of €30 million, a price that PSG is willing to execute in view of the Parisian team’s needs to find a coach to succeed Pochettino.
