Arne Slot Confirms He Will Replace Klopp At Liverpool

Feyenoord coach Arne Slot has confirmed he will succeed Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager from next season.

Klopp announced in January he will be leaving Anfield at the end of the season.

Although Liverpool have yet to confirm Slot’s appointment as their new manager, they have reached a £9.4 million ($11.8m) compensation agreement with Feyenoord.

The gaffer used Friday’s pre-match news conference to bid farewell to Feyenoord.

“Until now I was not thinking about this being the buildup to my last match, but that starts coming now,” Slot said.

“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. You can say that with words, but you can feel it if people truly think that way. That does mean a lot to me.”
