Aston Villa’ next manager: Rúben Amorim distanced himself, for now.

According to The Athletic website, Rúben Amorim is one of the names linked to succeed Steven Gerrard, sacked from Aston Villa yesterday.

Few days ago, there was talk of the English man departure, given the bad results, and the heavy defeat by 0-3, at Fulham’s home sealed his fate. There was talk of Mauricio Pochettino, but the Argentine will not be very interested, as well as Thomas Tuchel.

Rúben Amorim reacts to Aston Villa’s alleged interest: «Once again…»

The Portuguese coach was asked about those reports in the preview of the game with Casa Pia A.C.

“As for other clubs, I coach Sporting. I have nothing to say, once again…’
