Guillem Balague has revealed that Sporting CP manager Ruben Amorim is a big fan of Pep Guardiola and Manchester City. Amorim closely follows City and Brighton in the Premier League and admires the work of Guardiola and other top managers. Balague mentioned that Amorim’s interest in the Premier League and his admiration for Guardiola, Mauricio Pochettino, and Jose Mourinho is evident in his reading material and watching Premier League games regularly.

Although Ruben Amorim has been linked to potential roles at West Ham United and Liverpool, it has been reported that he will not be taking any job in the Premier League next season. Amorim has been successful at Sporting CP, winning 146 out of 208 games since becoming the manager in 2020. His admiration for Guardiola, who has won five Premier League titles with City, suggests that he may be waiting for an opportunity to move to the Premier League and potentially take over at Manchester City or Brighton in the future.

With Balague’s revelation that Amorim is a big admirer of Guardiola and De Zerbi, it is speculated that he may be eyeing a managerial position at City or Brighton in the future. Amorim’s interest in the style of play and management at Manchester City aligns with his own coaching philosophy, making him a candidate to potentially succeed Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium when his contract expires in 2025.
