The Lowdown: Wolves suffer Amorim setback
The Premier League side are yet to replace Bruno Lage following his sacking after the 2-0 defeat to West Ham last weekend, though Fosun and Jeff Shi have been extremely busy identifying potential successors.
The Portuguese is claimed to have been the Wanderers’ top target after his compatriot’s departure, though that may have suffered a setback after he admitted that he is happy with his project in Lisbon.
The Latest: O’Rourke’s comments
Speaking to The Transfer Tavern, O’Rourke claimed that Wolves would be delighted to secure Amorim as the man to take over the reins from Lage.
“It’d be a really exciting appointment. I think Amorim’s regarded as one of the best young coaches in Europe with what he’s done in Lisbon, and obviously, they’re in the Champions League right now as well.”
The Verdict: Next to impossible
Whilst Wolves are a highly regarded club, it’s unlikely that Amorim would leave Sporting given the success he’s currently enjoying there.
Amorim also has five pieces of silverware to his name having won the Primeira Liga, League Cup and Supercup titles, so for him to swap this for the Midlands right now is probably unrealistic.
