Slot intends to bring Feyenoord’s Hulshoff on board at Liverpool – Sources


Arne Slot is poised to appoint Sipke Hulshoff, his assistant at Feyenoord, as the initial addition to his coaching staff at Liverpool once he takes over from Jürgen Klopp, according to sources at ESPN.

Klopp is set to oversee his final game as Liverpool manager this weekend when Wolves visit Anfield on Sunday, marking the end of his tenure since October 2015.

Although Liverpool has yet to officially confirm Slot’s appointment as their new manager, they have reportedly reached a compensation agreement of £9.4 million ($11.8m) with Feyenoord for the 45-year-old.

Sources suggest an official announcement is probable next week, following Klopp’s departure.

Slot indicated during a recent news conference that confirmation of his move to Liverpool would occur “in a matter of days,” and sources reveal he has already begun assembling his coaching team at Anfield.

Sipke Hulshoff, 49, has been Slot’s colleague at Feyenoord since 2022 and has also served as an assistant for the Netherlands alongside former Everton manager Ronald Koeman since January 2023.

Slot and Hulshoff previously collaborated as co-coaches at Cambuur in 2016, marking the beginning of Slot’s coaching journey, before Slot transitioned to AZ Alkmaar a year later.

With Klopp’s departure, Liverpool faces a summer of restructuring both on and off the pitch, as his existing coaching staff—Pep Lijnders, Peter Krawietz, Vitor Matos, and goalkeeper coach John Achterberg—are also set to depart from Anfield.
