The FC Barcelona, although now apparently has like main premise the permanence of Xavi Hernández at the head of the sportive project culé for the next seasons, the reality is that in front of the little certainty that there is on this stage, keeps in the active research of trainers that can occupy the bench the next campaign. They handle apparently candidates very known like Hansi Flick, Roberto of Zerbi, Thomas Tuchel and others of a profile a bit more discreet, whose addition in this list results perhaps unexpected for some, as Rubén Amorim.

The native of Lisbon, the one who at present directs to the Sporting CP, has been one of the so many names that have sounded for the Barcelona technical direction. His candidature is backed by the fact that, in spite of having developed his career like agent only in Portugal, has showed to be a winning trainer. It has obtained a total of five titles (four with the 'Lions' and one with the SC Knickers) in hardly five periods of career in the benches. Besides, at present his Sporting CP is litigating for going back to be champion of the League US and also has serious options to top 'monarch' of the Taça of Portugal, contest in which his group already is in the semifinals.

To this winning gene of Amorim adds him the fact that his squares are used to to be defensivamente very strong, betting by an incessant pressure to the rival, in addition to that it likes them treat well the ball and dominate constantly the possession, being ofensivamente showy. If to this adds him that the lisboeta is a technician that, to the equal that Xavi Hernández, does not doubt in betting by young players, and that he and Deco know of when they coincided in the selection of Portugal in the World-wide 2010 like players, can think that it is a candidate whose postulación is not descabellada.

Rubén Amorim, real option for the bench of the FC Barcelona?

However, in spite of the previously exposed, in his moment the FC Barcelona descartó his candidature with a comment that prayed: "Rubén Amorim is doing a good work in the Sporting and that plays a similar style to the of the Barcelona, but think that has very little experience". This 'stick' would be later answered by the Portuguese, the one who said: "it Is a fact. Only I want to have experience to be trainer of the Sporting. While mine do not remember that I am inexperto and only have four years, that is my aim, go back to win titles with the Sporting because it has happened a time and that is the only approach that have".

This exchange of words could suggest that the relation between both parts is not the best in this moment. Nevertheless, now it has arisen new information that could contradict this and go back to put in career to the Portuguese, the one who finish agreement with the Sporting CP the next 30 June 2026. The journalist Florian Plettenberg left clear recently that the FC Barcelona has not lost of sight the work of the technician lisboeta.

However, the mentioned information also sustains that, in addition to the interest of the Barcelona picture, other clubs also follow him closely. It mentions to the Liverpool like an option for the next market of summer, given the imminent retreat of Jürgen Klopp, as well as the interest of Chelsea FC, club that would be considering it in case that the things do not improve with Mauritius Pochettino. All these teams have clear that the clause of rescission of the technician is around the 10 million euros.
