Arne Slot reveals TWO new recruits will join Liverpool in the 'near future'

Arne Slot held his first press conference as Liverpool head coach on Friday afternoon and he revealed that there will be two new staff members joining the Reds in the 'near future'.

While he has already conducted his first interview with the club, offering supporters a glimpse of his personality, Slot spoke to British reporters for the first time on 5 July.

Joined by new sporting director Richard Hughes, the Dutchman answered a series of questions on his predecessor Jurgen Klopp, his football philosophy and a range of other topics.

During the conference, he was asked about additions to his team of staff, with Liverpool having already announced three new arrivals behind the scenes.

However, Slot confirmed that there will be two more staff members joining him at Anfield shortly.


Speaking to the media, Slot was full of praise for the members of staff that had already joined him on Merseyside, while admitting there were more to come.

"I think what has been announced already is Sipke Hulshoff [new Liverpool assistant manager], who I've worked with at Feyenoord and our former club Cambuur Leeuwarden as well," said Slot. "He's sitting in the room here as well, like you probably saw. That's been announced already.

"Already the goalkeeping coach has been announced [Fabian Otte]. I haven't worked with him but we have spoken to him and we are really happy that he is going to join our team.

"We're expecting two others to join, with more announcements to come in the near future."

Slot didn't divulge any further information on the upcoming additions to Liverpool's backroom staff, while he also forgot to mention the arrival of Ruben Peeters, who will be the lead physical performance coach next term.

Klopp was obviously the most significant departure at the end of last season, but he was not the only one to part ways with the Reds.

His assistants Peter Krawietz and Pep Lijnders left - the latter taking over as RB Salzburg manager - as well as the likes of Vitor Matos, Andreas Kornmayer and John Achterberg.
