Feyenoord star reveals HUGE Arne Slot impact amid Liverpool negotiations

Feyenoord goalkeeper Justin Bijlow has revealed the immense impact that Arne Slot has had on the Dutch club since his arrival, while also highlighting what the coach has changed during his tenure. 

Slot is now expected to become Liverpool's next manager after entering negotiations with the Reds to replace Jurgen Klopp at the end of the season.

The 45-year-old has impressed in his native Netherlands, winning the Eredivisie and KNVB Beker, as well as reaching a Europa Conference League final with Feyenoord.

It appears that the announcement of his move to Liverpool is imminent and could even come in the next few days, with Bijlow heaping praise on Slot and wishing him well for the next step in his career.


As reported by Dutch outlet De Telegraaf, Feyenoord's Bijlow has revealed the significant impact that Slot has had on the Rotterdam club over the past few seasons.

"When the coach came, we had a completely different philosophy at the club," said Bijlow. "Playing football from behind was not our thing. The professionalism, and everything surrounding it, has improved a lot. [Slot has] played a large part in that.

"It's a shame for our club [if Slot leaves]. But just like with a player, you also give him a nice step because he has done so well."

Slot has had plenty of praise from the Dutch media over the past few days and also received a glowing recommendation from former Liverpool star Dirk Kuyt.

Slot has been commended for overachieving with both Feyenoord and his previous club AZ Alkmaar and has employed an attractive, attacking style of football during his short managerial career.

He is a huge fan of both Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp, and already has some silverware to back up his exciting potential.
