Feyenoord manager Arne Slot has announced that he will be joining Liverpool this summer to succeed Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool reached an agreement with the Dutch manager late last month, but the club has yet to issue an official statement. Slot himself acknowledged that he was uncertain about when his new role would be formally announced.

Despite initially attempting to keep details of his move under wraps, Slot has now confirmed that he will be heading to Anfield.

“It sometimes feels strange to be doing everything here for the last time these weeks,” he told the media on Friday. “I was also a little later today, because I want to take my time for a good farewell with everyone.

“There has been no official announcement yet, but I can confirm that I will be Liverpool’s coach next season. But that is no surprise to you.”

According to Fabrizio Romano, Arne Slot officially signed his contract with Liverpool on Friday, finalizing his upcoming move to Anfield.

One of the primary reasons for the delay in the announcement is the need to secure work permits for the staff members Slot intends to bring with him.

The 45-year-old manager plans to bring several members of his backroom team to Merseyside, including assistant Sipke Hulshoff, who recently resigned from his position with the Dutch national team to avoid conflicts with the European Championship this summer.

Slot’s time at Feyenoord will conclude on Sunday with a match against Excelsior, just hours before Liverpool bids farewell to Jurgen Klopp.
