Slot focused on Feyenoord task as Liverpool speculation swirls

SoccerNews in Eredivisie 4 May 2024


Arne Slot insists his focus remains on Feyenoord but acknowledged his confidence that an expected move to Liverpool will come to fruition.

Jurgen Klopp will depart the Reds at the end of this season, with widespread reports in the Dutch media suggesting Liverpool have already agreed a compensation deal to bring Slot to Anfield.

As speculation swirls over the Dutchman’s future, Slot was keen to reiterate his commitment to Feyenoord, who are second in the league and face Zwolle in Sunday’s Eredivisie fixture.

“For the 25th time, I really can’t answer it,” Slot said as questions continue to flow over the Liverpool links.

“There is nothing official yet and I am sitting here with a Feyenoord emblem on my chest, so the intention is for this press conference to be about Feyenoord, but I think you will try [and ask about Liverpool] anyway.”

Slot led Feyenoord to their second Eredivisie title last season after taking over the club in 2021.

It is believed that he topped the list of Liverpool’s favoured candidates due to his attacking playing style and ability to develop players.

“I still have the confidence that things will turn out well, but I really can’t give any further answers,” Slot admitted, in his only concession over a move to the Premier League.

“If this continues, this will be an unpleasant press conference.

“I just think it’s appropriate to give all the answers to these questions at the end of the season, because I’m still busy with Feyenoord here and Liverpool are also still busy with their season.”
