Newcastle identified 39-year-old manager as a prospective replacement for Eddie Howe

According to caughtoffside, as they seek to replace Eddie Howe, Newcastle United has entered the race for highly sought-after manager Ruben Amorim. According to Team Talk, Newcastle are open to considering Ruben Amorim as their future manager, with Eddie Howe possibly leaving the club this summer. The Magpies are currently in talks with Chelsea and Liverpool, two clubs that have been keeping an eye on the 39-year-old manager.

Since taking over at Sporting Lisbon in March 2020, Amorim has established himself as one of Europe’s most promising young coaches. With his enticing style of play, the former Portugal international midfielder has altered the club’s fortunes, winning the Primeira Liga, Portuguese Cup, and Portuguese Super Cup in his four-year tenure.

Newcastle are not even close to the level of success they achieved under Eddie Howe the previous season, so things have not gone as planned. The Magpies are still considerably behind in the race for a spot in the top four, having qualified for the Champions League only to be eliminated in the group stages.

Newcastle, who entered the Champions League for the first time in 20 years last season, are again languishing in the rankings and have suffered with injuries throughout the season.
The Newcastle owners want Howe to succeed because they want to turn him into their own Sir Alex Ferguson, the legendary Manchester United manager. However, because football is a results-oriented sport, this season has been a disappointment.

Liverpool have been connected with Amorim since Jurgen Klopp announced his desire to stand down in the summer. Chelsea is also interested since they had Amorim on their shortlist before appointing Mauricio Pochettino, and they may fire the Argentine after some dismal performances.

Overall, Amorim will most likely have a plethora of options this summer. He may, however, decide to reconsider his options and begin a new chapter in his career when the season concludes.
