Coach Rúben Amorim Says His Meeting With West Ham Was Disrespectful


Ruben Amorim, a Portuguese tactician said that he disregarded his current club Sporting Lisbon by trying to join Premier League Club West Ham United.
Ruben Amorim, a young manager from Portugal who won the Portuguese League with Sporting Lisbon 2022, is one of Europe’s hottest managers.

The Portuguese club is 7 points ahead of Benfica, the team that currently holds the second place in the league.

Liverpool tried to bring him in to replace Jurgen Klipp, but the deal fell through.

Ruben Amorim, who was the subject of intense speculation at the time, flew on a West Ham United sponsored jet to London to discuss replacing David Moyes.

Amorim was left wondering how he could apologize to Sporting Lisbon supporters for disrespecting them by having talks with West Ham.


“What is important to say is that it was obviously a mistake,” Amorim said during a press conference.

“The trip was a mistake, the timing was completely misjudged, which I did not see at the time. It was misjudged.”

He added, “I gave the players an explanation. I also explained to the staff as I should have.

“But now it is about continuing forward, clearly aside from all that, publicly I ask for forgiveness from the Sportinguistas [Sporting fans]. I apologise to the staff, and also I apologise first and foremost publicly to my players for the mistake.”
