“What Liverpool fans can expect from Arne Slot” — Reiss Nelson



"What Liverpool fans can expect from Arne Slot" -- Reiss Nelson

Speculation over who will succeed Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool‘s manager has intensified, with Feyenoord boss Arne Slot emerging as a frontrunner for the coveted position.

Klopp’s announcement in January about his impending departure at the end of the season set off a flurry of rumors regarding potential successors.

Among the contenders, former Bayer Leverkusen player Xabi Alonso took himself out of the running by committing to his coaching role at the Bundesliga champions.

Now, attention has turned to Arne Slot, who reportedly sits “at the forefront” of Liverpool’s managerial search. Talks between the club and the 45-year-old Dutchman have purportedly commenced, with Liverpool potentially having to fork out £9 million in compensation to secure his services.

Slot boasts an impressive resume, having clinched the Eredivisie and KNVB Cup during his tenure at Feyenoord. Known for his aggressive, front-foot approach to football, he has also garnered praise for his ability to nurture young talent.

One such player is Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson, who flourished under Slot’s guidance during a loan spell at Feyenoord in the 2020/21 season. Reflecting on his time under Slot, Nelson spoke highly of the manager’s influence, citing his role in helping him find his form and secure regular playing time.

“Holland was great for me. I felt like Arne Slot is a great manager,” Nelson remarked, emphasizing Slot’s knack for maximizing player potential.

“He really got me into my rhythm. He gave me a lot of opportunities to play and I excelled.”

Slot’s managerial prowess has not gone unnoticed in the Premier League, with previous interest from clubs like Leeds, Chelsea, and Tottenham. While he recently signed a two-year contract extension with Feyenoord, Slot hinted at his desire to coach in England, affirming that his next career move would likely take him abroad.

“My next step will not be a club in Holland,” Slot declared.

“If that is my next step, then I’ve failed completely. The normal next step will be to go abroad, and I’ve always said the best league in the world is the Premier League.”
