Portugal star Joao Palhinha says Ruben Amorim has the ‘quality’ and man-management skills to deal with the inevitable ‘pressure’ he will face should he become Liverpool boss.

Jurgen Klopp is ending his love affair with LIVERPOOL at the end of the season as he needs to take a break away from the game – meaning that the board will need to add a new manager to the club.

That has led to speculation that the highly-rated Amorim could be the next boss into the club having built a reputation for himself as one of the best young managers in the game right now.

And amid all the speculation – Palhinha has no doubt that Amorim has what it takes to succeed at Anfield, backing his fellow countryman for the job after working under him for two years at Sporting.

‘Ruben is a coach with a lot of quality, one of the best in Portugal. He has done an excellent job since Braga,’ the Fulham midfielder told Portuguese outlet O Jogo.

‘He has in-depth knowledge of the game and has a close relationship with the players.

‘The way he is growing, he won’t stay in Portugal much longer. It will not be for lack of opportunities that he will not leave Portugal.

‘He dreams and aims to win another title with Sporting and then the future will be in his hands.’

Asked whether Amorim has the ‘capacity’ to manage a club of Liverpool’s stature, Palhinha replied: ‘Yes, of course, although the pressure is different.

‘When you coach a big Portuguese club, you have pressure from the fans and the size of the club itself, which forces you to win.

‘When you coach LIVERPOOL, you have pressure from the fans, the club and the whole world.

‘The way it is developing, I think it will be a matter of time.’
