According to the last-minute disagreement, Liverpool ‘agreed’ to appoint a different manager to Arne Slot.



Even though Liverpool has not yet made an official announcement on Arne Slot’s arrival on the eve of the Premier League season, he has already stated that he would succeed Jurgen Klopp at Anfield—but only after an extremely last-minute change in plans. On Sunday, the Reds will play Wolves at home in their final game under the great German manager before starting a new chapter with Slot, the head coach of Feyenoord.

It wasn’t always thought that Slot would replace Klopp; at first, Xabi Alonso was seen to be the most likely candidate. The manager of Bayer Leverkusen swiftly rejected the possibility of returning to Merseyside in order to focus on leading the Bundesliga team to an unparalleled undefeated season.

After an impressive four years leading the Portuguese behemoths, Sporting’s Ruben Amorim quickly came into focus as a potential candidate for the Liverpool position. However, Reds manager Michael Edwards chose to pursue Slot in a different way; the rationale behind Amorim’s rejection has now surfaced.

According to CaughtOffside, an agreement was reached for Amorim to join Anfield, but at the last minute, the financial parameters were altered. Contracts were prepared for signature, and Sporting was expected to collect £8.5 million as part of the settlement.

However, it was rumored that Sporting president Frederico Varandas abruptly changed his mind and demanded twice as much for their bright head coach. Amorim was unhappy since he was hoping to succeed Klopp as Liverpool called off talks because they were unwilling to renegotiate.

After reaching a deal with Feyenoord, Liverpool quickly moved on to Slot, while Amorim turned to West Ham with the hopes of making the Premier League the next season.

He took a plane to London as the Hammers looked at potential David Moyes successors, eventually settling on former Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui, according to a number of sources.
