Amorim is the front-runner to be Liverpool’s next manager and he has stoked the fires with some fresh comments, admitting that he won’t necessarily stay at Sporting beyond this summer.

“Sporting is already dealing with the future, I can’t decide,” Amorim told O Jogo.

“I gave my word and I can’t go back. If we don’t win titles, I will leave Sporting. It was clear from the beginning, it was the deal I conveyed to the players.”

At this point, it would arguably be a surprise if Amorim wasn’t Jurgen Klopp‘s replacement – but then we thought similar about Xabi Alonso!

FSG have received criticism in the past when it comes to ticket prices and Liverpool have confirmed a new hike, with a statement from the club saying:

“The club can also confirm the lowest ticket price rise so far across the Premier League, with a two percent rise for season tickets and Members’ matchday tickets for the 2024/25 season.

“This works out at less than £1 per game for season ticket holders.”

It hasn’t been met well by many, including supporters’ group Spirit of Shankly, with some of the reaction understandably negative…

Will fans ever be considered more important than money?

Video of the day and match of the night

Klopp was on press conference duty ahead of Sunday’s trip to Old Trafford – here’s what he had to say:

Match of the night is Rotherham vs. Plymouth (8pm UK) in the Championship, in a big game at the bottom of the table.

The hosts are admittedly all but relegated, but a win for the 20th-placed visitors would take them four points clear of the drop zone.
