Liverpool manager-designate Arne Slot has confirmed he will be Liverpool’s manager.

Slot, 46, adopted a no-holes-barred approach as Liverpool switched from Ruben Amorim to have him replace Jurgen Klopp.

And from the forgoing, the Feyenoord boss is happy making that big leap in his career from Rotterdam to Merseyside.

Futballnews understands Liverpool went on the fast-lane negotiating a deal with Feyenoord for Slot and were able to reach an agreement in days.

Meanwhile, personal terms were also agreed with the Dutchman, who was eager to take the big step in his managerial career.

Arne Slot will take charge of his final Eredivisie match against Excelsior on Sunday, May 19, before leaving for Liverpool.

Speaking in his final press conference as Feyenoord manager, Slot confirmed he will be the next Liverpool manager.

“Yes, I will be the trainer there,” he said when asked about the Liverpool move.

It is the first time Slot has admitted he will be the Reds’ new boss since the club reached an agreement with Feyenoord for his services.

Liverpool have yet to officially announce him as the club’s new manager with Klopp still in charge pending his final game as Liverpool manager against Wolves on Sunday, May 19, 2024.

Slot’s affirmation of his status as Jurgen Klopp’s successor in the waiting came hours after Jurgen Klopp also had his final press conference as Liverpool manager, admitting he has had a hectic final week in the build-up to his exit.

The one-time Premier League and Champions League winner will draw the curtain on his nine-year spell with Liverpool as manager after the Wolves match on Sunday.

Despite a late capitulation that saw Liverpool fall from their quadruple chase to settle with only the EFL Cup this season, Klopp has built a gigantic managerial career at Merseyside with six major trophies, including the coveted Champions League and Premier League trophy.

Slot’s biggest challenge will be hitting the benchmarks set by Klopp at Liverpool. Meanwhile, Klopp had rave reviews of the Feyenoord boss as his imminent successor but the Dutchman will face the sleuthing eyes of the media as he sets out for a more demanding task to man the dugout at Anfield.
