Liverpool announce Feyenoord boss, Slot as new manager

Liverpool have announced Feyenoord boss Arne Slot as their new manager. 

The Reds agreed a compensation deal worth £9.4m with the Dutch club in April after the 45-year-old was identified as the man to succeed Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

Klopp’s right-hand men Peter Krawietz and Pep Lijnders have also departed the club, with the latter becoming manager of Red Bull Salzburg. Elite development coach Vitor Matos will follow Lijnders to Austria, with several other backroom staff departing.

After the final game on Sunday, the German called on Liverpool fans to get behind their new boss, chanting “Arne Slot, na na na na na”.

Slot’s three-year contract at Liverpool will officially start on 1 June.  He led Feyenoord to the 2022-23 Eredivisie title, and won the Dutch Cup and finished second in the league this season.

The 45-year-old is bringing his trusted lieutenant Sipke Hulshoff to Anfield, and has stepped down from his part-time duties alongside with Ronald Koeman at the Netherlands, which he juggled with Feyenoord coaching.

Head of performance, Ruben Peeters and analyst Etienne Reijnen are also among the staff Slot will bring to Liverpool.

Klopp, who had been in charge of Liverpool since October 2015, left the club following their final game of the season against Wolves on Sunday.
