Announced in the sights of PSG, the Leões coach would even be the priority of Luis Campos. But he is still far from having left Lisbon.
Will leave? Won’t leave? A time announced as sealed, the fate of Mauricio Pochettino may not be completely fixed. While waiting for the big announcements from Nasser Al-Khelaïfi scheduled for next week, the case of the Argentine coach is causing a lot of talk. This morning, the idea of seeing him stay in Paris took on a little weight.
However, Pochettino’s future remains uncertain. The name of Thiago Motta was mentioned again and yesterday that of Ruben Amorim was announced as the priority of Luis Campos, the future sporting director of PSG. Young and talented, the Lusitanian has an attractive profile for the new Parisian project. Except that he is still far from leaving Sporting.
Amorim loyal to Sporting?
This morning, the Portuguese press is unanimous on this subject: “Amorim does not leave” (A Bola), “Amorim, Faithful” (Record). To explain this trend, the newspapers first recall that the Sportinguistas coach is under contract until 2024 and that it is unlikely that PSG will pay his €30m release clause. But that’s not all. According to Record, there is no contact between Paris Saint-Germain and Sporting Portugal. Nor with the agents of the coach.
For the moment, Amorim’s plan remains the one he announced on May 14, after the last game of the season against Santa Clara (4-0). “Talk to my agents? I took my decision. I don’t want to leave like this, I’m not going to leave now. I know I run the risk of being fired, but you’re going to have to put up with me for another year! » And according to In BolaAmorim reportedly confirmed this trend to his inner circle.
