On Saturday 1 June, Arne Slott will have his first day on the job as Liverpool manager, and after that you will likely hear a lot from the 45-year-old who will come in as Jurgen Klopp's replacement.

In his latest interview with Feyenoord's official website He was asked about Klopp's departure, and the way to deal with his departure. He does not hide that his dream is that there may be similar scenes on the day it ends. The interview was conducted in Dutch, but was reproduced by Hey ho.

-I'm already lucky, but then I'll get very lucky. I will take over from a coach who has achieved a much greater stature at the club where he has worked for nine years. I hope I can leave the same way he leaves now, and the way I can leave this club. But there has to be an incredible amount of things going right for it to work, he says.

There were great scenes when Slott said goodbye to Feyenoord last weekend, with banners reading 'You'll Never Walk Alone' and a club where everyone seemed to be wishing the coach well.

More offers from the Premier League

Slot is said to have turned down clubs such as Leeds, Crystal Palace, Tottenham and Chelsea in the past, before now accepting Liverpool to become the club's new head coach. He was asked about the Premier League interest.

– I don't want to sound arrogant, of course, but they are not the first club to inquire about the matter in the last three years. The advantage of performing well is that there will be clubs interested in you. It may sound arrogant, but then you'll gradually get used to the clubs following you, clubs you wouldn't have dreamed of four or five years ago, he says.

It has already been reported that he has been in talks with sporting director Richard Hughes about the team he will work with and he seems excited about the stock of players he will have at the AXA Training Centre.

– It's great and very nice that I can move from Arizona, which was also a nice club, to Feyenoord, and now to Liverpool, it's great. “What makes it even better is that I think we will have a great group of players to work with,” he says.
