Newcastle chiefs lining up “incredible” Eddie Howe replacement : Fabrizio Romano shares new update

He uses an attack-oriented 3-4-3 configuration.
Newcastle United officials are apparently looking for a “incredible” manager known for playing offensive football, with Eddie Howe under increasing pressure to keep his job.

Howe faces pressure at Newcastle.
The Englishman has had an excellent time at St James’ Park, leading the Magpies clear from the Premier League relegation zone when he joined in 2021 and then making them a true force again last season.
Reaching the Champions League in 2022/23 was a fantastic achievement for Howe and his players, and the hope was that they would kick on again this season.

Unfortunately, things haven’t gone as planned, with injuries undoubtedly playing a role in Newcastle’s troubles, but too many poor performances and choices have also contributed to their current position of ninth in the table.

Saturday’s 4-1 defeat away to Arsenal was a humiliating experience for the Magpies, who were blown away in the first half in especially, and it has put Howe under undue pressure to keep his job. It’s unclear how close he is to being fired, but a fresh update indicates that one potential successor is already being considered.

Newcastle want Ruben Amorim if Howe leaves
According to a fresh update from TEAMtalk, Newcastle are eyeing Sporting CP manager Ruben Amorim as Howe’s successor at Newcastle, should they part company with the current Magpies boss.
“Sporting Lisbon manager Ruben Amorim has emerged as a target to replace Eddie Howe as Newcastle United manager in the summer, TEAMtalk can exclusively reveal. Amorim has established himself as one of the brightest young coaching talents in European football, with the 39-year-old making a great impression at Sporting Lisbon since his appointment in March 2020.”

The report also points out that Amorim adopts an “attractive style of play”, which could appeal to Newcastle fans, with the Portuguese known for going with a forward thinking 3-4-3 formation as his system of choice.

Given some of the performances and results this season, it’s fair that Magpies fans are thinking about life after Howe, and Amorim is probably one of Europe’s leading young managers right now.

The fact that he is apparently a front-runner alongside Xabi Alonso and Julian Nagelsmann to succeed Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool speaks volumes about his reputation in the game, and at 39 years old, he is still just getting started in managing.
Football prospect scout Jacek Kulig describes Amorim as “incredible” in the past, and he won the Primeira Liga title with Sporting in 2020/21. If the PIF makes a decisive choice on Howe’s future, he appears to be a strong candidate to replace him.
