Ruben Amorim, the coach of Sporting CP, has emerged as the frontrunner among football betting sites to succeed Jurgen Klopp as the next Liverpool manager. This shift in the market occurred after Xabi Alonso, the previous favorite, withdrew himself from contention, opting to remain with Bayer Leverkusen for the upcoming season. Alonso’s decision has triggered significant changes in the managerial betting market, with Amorim’s odds being slashed from 10/3 to a best price of 4/5 in some places.

The Portuguese tactician’s sudden surge in popularity is not confined to Liverpool alone, as he is also reportedly on Barcelona’s radar and has been linked with a potential move to Chelsea amid speculation surrounding Mauricio Pochettino’s future. However, Liverpool may have gained an advantage over their competitors by being aware of Alonso’s intentions to stay at Leverkusen several weeks ago.

Reports in the Portuguese press have suggested that Amorim is open to the prospect of joining the Merseyside club. Currently, Amorim leads the betting market by a considerable margin, with Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi being the next favored candidate at 4/1 odds with BetVictor.

Meanwhile, the odds for Germany’s head coach, Julian Nagelsmann, have shortened to 7/1, indicating that he remains a contender in the race for the Liverpool managerial position. As speculation continues to swirl, football enthusiasts eagerly await the final decision regarding Klopp’s successor at Anfield.
