Official: Liverpool Announce New Coach

Liverpool have announced that Arne Slot will become the new head coach to succeed Jurgen Klopp.

The German tactician had announced that he would be leaving the Reds after the 2023/24 campaign and had an emotional farewell on Sunday.

On Monday, Liverpool formerly announced Slot as their new coach after the Dutchman penned a three-year contract.

“The 45-year-old will join the Reds from Feyenoord ahead of the 2024-25 season after a deal was reached with the Eredivisie club for his services,” the club stated.

“Slot will replace Jürgen Klopp at the helm following his decision to step down from the post at the end of the current campaign.

“The Netherlands-born coach will arrive after three highly successful seasons with Feyenoord, during which he led them to the league title in 2023 and was named Eredivisie Manager of the Year on two occasions.

“He will now soon become the first head coach of Liverpool FC from the Netherlands – with his first pre-season in charge of the squad set to get under way in July.”

Slot has big boots to fill as the Reds won eight trophies under Klopp, including the Premier League and UEFA Champions League.
