Arne Slot has insisted he does not believe the Liverpool job will be any tougher than the one he’s had at Feyenoord.

Soccer News cover comments from the Feyenoord boss today as he gears up to replace Jurgen Klopp at Anfield this summer.

Liverpool remain locked in talks with Feyenoord over a deal for the Dutch manager, who was named as the surprise candidate to replace Klopp when he departs in the summer.

Negotiations over the deal for the coach and his backroom team have been ongoing for the best part of two weeks, with an announcement now expected once Klopp has taken charge of his final game this weekend.

In the meantime, the focus is now firmly on Slot and what he will bring to Liverpool moving forwards, with all indications that a major overhaul is on the way this summer.

The move to Merseyside will undoubtedly be a major step up for the 45-year-old, who has so far managed Feyenoord, AZ Alkmaar and had a short spell as the caretaker manager at SC Cambuur.

He, though, cannot see the job he is taking up at Liverpool being any tougher than the one he has done with his current employers.

“I think that almost every trainer of a top club is on the edge of being overworked,” he said.

“Being a head coach is a very tough job. Especially at a top club with so many opinion makers in front of you every week. I really experienced this, as it turns out, last season at Feyenoord as tough.

Expanding on why he didn’t think the job would be tougher, he said: “That would also have been the case if I had stayed at Feyenoord. Expectations in De Kuip are also high. People expect good football and good results. That has often been successful, but as a trainer you are constantly working on that.”
