The feelings of Liverpool players on the appointment of Arne Slot have been revealed

Feyenoord coach Arne Slot is set to succeed Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool and the feeling in the Reds’ dressing room is not a positive one.

Klopp announced at the start of the year that he would be leaving the Merseyside club at the end of the season after nine successful years at Anfield, leaving Slot with a very tough act to follow.

The Dutch coach will join Liverpool ahead of the 2024/25 campaign after the Premier League club agreed to pay Feyenoord £9.4m for his services. The 45-year-old’s style is very similar to Klopp’s and that was a big factor in him landing the role on Merseyside.

According to Football Insider, senior stars in the Liverpool dressing room are said to be privately disappointed by Slot’s appointment; who will be joined by his assistant manager Sipke Hulshoff, head of performance Ruben Peeters and analyst Etienne Reijnen at Anfield.

The Feyenoord boss may not be a big name, but he has the credentials to successfully take over from Klopp and write his own story on Merseyside in the coming years.

Arne Slot can be a success at Liverpool

Slot’s move to Liverpool is a massive one in his career, spending the entire period in Holland. The Dutch coach delivered the Eredivisie title and the KNVB Cup to Feyenoord in his three years at the club and will certainly find it harder to find success in England.

The 45-year-old will be looking to quickly convert doubters in the dressing room and having a compatriot in Virgil van Dijk as his captain will ease the transition for the manager.

It will be an exciting season at Liverpool from August onwards and good results from the start of the campaign will reassure everyone around Anfield following Klopp’s departure.
