Liverpool players’ reaction to Arne Slot appointment revealed after Reds agree £9.4m fee

Arne Slot is reportedly close to leaving Feyenoord to join Liverpool, with an agreement reached over a compensation fee. This news comes as Liverpool players prepare for Jurgen Klopp’s departure after nine years as manager. The majority of Liverpool’s squad have only worked under Klopp, with Joe Gomez being the only player to have arrived before his appointment in 2015. Despite the daunting prospect of Klopp leaving, reports suggest that the players are “delighted” with the decision to hire Slot as his successor.

Slot has gained a stellar reputation in the Eredivisie, leading Feyenoord to the league title last season and the KNVB Cup last weekend. Liverpool’s search for Klopp’s successor appears to be ahead of schedule, with Slot widely expected to take charge. However, the players remain focused on finishing the Klopp era as strongly as possible. The team’s upcoming game against West Ham is expected to be a significant moment, with players likely to be asked about the prospect of Slot leading the dressing room.

Meanwhile, Liverpool is currently behind Arsenal and Manchester City in the Premier League standings, with City being the favorites to win the league title. With Guardiola and Arteta set to remain at City and Arsenal, Slot could face a challenging start if he takes over at Liverpool, having only managed in the Netherlands prior to this potential move.
