Chelsea target Ruben Amorim has apologized for his visit to London last weeks to hold talks over a move to the Premier League.

Mauricio Pochettino has been tipped to leave CHELSEA after disappointing seasons, while Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp announced months ago that he would be leaving Liverpool.

Last week there were some reports that revealed Amorim had already flown to London to have talks with West Ham about a move to the Premier League at the end of the season and the 39-year-old’s meeting with the Hammers reportedly led to the Reds pursuing Feyenoord’s Arne Slot instead, and now Amorim has admitted it was a “mistake” to meet with West Ham over potentially replacing David Moyes this summer.

Amorim told reporters: “The first thing to say is that the club knew about my trip, that’s the first thing, because it’s important and changes the context. The second thing to talk about is this ‘veil of secrecy’ around the trip. I ‘secretly’ parked my car outside, ‘secretly’ walked past 15 people, spoke with the people, took photos with people and got on a plane.

‘It’s important to take away this idea that it was all done behind the club’s back, that didn’t happen.

“And now the most important point, that obviously it was a mistake. The trip, the timing was completely wrong. I didn’t think so at the time but it was wrong, especially when I’m so demanding of my players, and I’m always the first to say that the problems of individuals can’t take over the team, and I’ve taken players out of the team for much less.

‘It was my fault, I have to accept that and live with it. I didn’t think it was so bad at the time but thinking back on it it’s very clear. I’ve explained this with the players, the staff, but most important now is to carry on. I’m using the conference here to say sorry to the Sporting fans, the staff and above all to say sorry publicly to the players for the mistake that I made.”
