Liverpool confirm appointment of Arne Slot

Liverpool have confirmed the appointment of Arne Slot as the club’s new manager with the Dutchman formally set to take up his position on June 1.

The 45-year-old will replace Jurgen Klopp at Anfield after the latter’s decision to step down from his role at the end of the 2023/24 campaign.

 

Slot had confirmed that he would become Liverpool manager on Friday, though the Reds have waited until the conclusion of the Premier League to announce his arrival.

“I can confirm that I will become the trainer there next year,” Slot said.

“Until now I was not thinking about this being the build-up to my last match, but that starts coming now. At the beginning of the week, you are thinking about training and those kind of things.

“But the feeling gets stronger now. That is why I’m a little bit late now [for the news conference] because I wanted to say goodbye to some people personally and take time for them, more than just shaking hands.

“So yeah, the feeling grows. I understand that good results help, but it is very nice to feel that people really are thinking it’s a pity that I’m leaving.”

The Feyenoord fans serenaded Slot to a rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone as he waved farewell following the club’s 4-0 win over Excelsior.

 

Slot guided the Rotterdam outfit to the Eredivisie title in 2022/23 and to KNVB Cup success and Champions League qualification this season. The club’s 92 league goals this season is their highest in 40 years.
