Sporting Lisbon manager Ruben Amorim has told Mais Futebol that he intends to win another title with the club, and insists he is not looking at other jobs amid reported interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

Amorim has impressed many since taking over at the Portuguese club in March of 2020, introducing an exciting style of play and developing top talent for the club.

He has already won the Portuguese league title last season, as well as the league cup and super cup (Transfermarkt).

This season Sporting are off the pace in the league, trailing leaders Benfica by 15 points with ten games to go.

However, Amorim’s side were competitive in the Champions League, where they beat Spurs in Portugal and held the Lilywhites at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Amorim has been linked with the top job at Tottenham recently Correio da Manha (as relayed by Sport Witness) in light of speculation that Antonio Conte will leave the club at the end of the season (Daily Mail).

Now, after beating Londoners Arsenal in the Europa League this week to advance to the quarter-finals of the competition, Amorim has spoken on his future at Sporting.

He said: “I don’t forget what we went through this year and it can go back to.

“Four weeks ago, with Midtjylland, we were talking about white scarves. It was in the previous tie. I don’t delude myself with that.”

“I am very happy here, my goal is to at least win another championship and I am not looking for anything, but I do not know tomorrow.

“Everything in my life happened very quickly.”

On claims he is the next Jose Mourinho, he added: “New Mourinho will not exist and I am prepared to continue with the Sporting project.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I was really impressed by Sporting Lisbon and the style of play Amorim has them playing when I watched them in the Champions League this season, and they’ve brought that same energy to the Europa League, too.

Amorim would be a fine choice to succeed Conte if necessary, and I’d like to think we could persuade him to come to the Premier League.
