Amorim, 39, has emerged as a potential candidate to succeed Jürgen Klopp at Liverpool, especially after Xabi Alonso confirmed his intention to stay at Bayer Leverkusen next season.

In response to rumors suggesting he had engaged in talks with Liverpool and even agreed to personal terms, Amorim stated in Thursday’s press conference: “This is the last time I’m going to talk about my future.”

He emphasized, “There was no talk, much less an agreement. The only thing we all want here is to be champions with Sporting, and nothing will change.”

Asserting his commitment to Sporting, Amorim clarified, “I’m the Sporting coach. There was no talk or agreement with any club. [I’m] just focused, as always, on defending my club.”

Furthermore, Amorim addressed speculation about his future by stating, “And since I really have nothing to say: There will be no interviews or agreements with the Sporting coach. The deal is done, whether for this club or another.”

Amorim’s contract with Sporting CP runs until June 2026. Despite his long-term commitment, he has previously hinted at uncertainty regarding his future at the club.

“The future is with [Friday’s opponents] Gil [Vicente],” he commented. “I’m not going to talk about that. We’re always asking the same questions. The aim is to win titles.”

Acknowledging the unpredictable nature of football, Amorim added, “I can’t guarantee that we’ll win the championship, so I can’t guarantee [that I’ll stay].”

Currently, Sporting CP leads the Primeira Liga, sitting four points ahead of nearest rivals Benfica with a game in hand.

Amidst speculation surrounding his future, Amorim’s focus remains on achieving success with Sporting CP in the ongoing season. As the club strives for domestic glory, Amorim’s leadership and commitment will continue to be pivotal in their pursuit of silverware.
