Arne Slot admits he wants to become new Liverpool manager and is confident agreement will be reached

2 minutes read

Feyenoord manager Arne Slot publicly expressed his desire to take on the role of Liverpool FC’s new manager during remarks made on Thursday night.

The 45-year-old Dutchman, who emerged as the leading candidate following discussions this week, made the statement before his team’s Eredivisie match against Go Ahead Eagles.

“It is no secret that I’d like to become the new Liverpool manager; my decision is clear,” Slot told ESPN Netherlands. “Feyenoord and Liverpool are in negotiations, and I’m waiting to see what will come out of it. I have every confidence that the clubs will reach an agreement.”

After Jurgen Klopp’s surprising announcement in January that he would be leaving Liverpool after nearly nine successful years in charge, various names have been linked as potential contenders, with Feyenoord boss Slot being the latest.

Liverpool has initiated talks with his current club regarding a deal to bring him to Anfield, and Slot is eager to join. It will require a compensation fee of approximately €10m (£8.5m) to release him from the final two years of his Feyenoord contract, and negotiations between the two clubs are ongoing.

Slot, who declined an offer from Tottenham last summer, secured the Eredivisie title with Feyenoord last season and won the KNVB Cup earlier in the current campaign. Regarded as one of the most highly-rated managers in Europe, he appears set on moving to Liverpool.

Under Slot’s leadership, Feyenoord clinched victory in the KNVB Cup on Sunday and secured the Eredivisie title last season. Additionally, he guided the team to the 2022 Europa Conference League final in his debut season after succeeding Dick Advocaat.
