Liverpool Legend Dirk Kuyt Analyzes How Arne Slot Will Impact Liverpool!

Former Reds midfielder Dirk Kuyt has provided a detailed analysis of the newly appointed Liverpool manager Arne Slot and how he will impact the team.

The appointment of Dutch manager Arne Slot by the Anfield giants at the end of this season upon Jurgen Klopp’s imminent departure has been finalised.

The Merseysiders have paid a total of €13M to the Eredivisie side to secure the services of Slot and his staff Sipke Hulshoff and Ruben Peeters, as reported by Fabrizio Romano.

However, the decision of the Reds’ higher officials is not being respected by everyone as many pundits and fans are not convinced by the manager.

Comprehensive Tactical Analysis Of Arne Slot By Dirk Kuyt

Even though the announcement of this new hiring should be relieving for the Kopites, somehow they are still not happy about it.

But former Liverpool midfielder-turned-icon Dirk Kuyt has approved of the appointment of his countryman. While discussing this with The Athletic, Kuyt enlightened,

“What people like most in Holland, where his reputation is so high, is that he has his vision, his style of play.

It’s different from Klopp, but many of the principles are the same.”

Slot has a unique playstyle that allows his team to play innovative and assertive football. His impressive attacking style of football paired with aggressive defending and high intensity resembles quite a lot with Klopp’s ‘Heavy Metal’ football.

Slot’s Ability To Adapt To Adversity

The 45-year-old has also shown his tactical acumen and resilience at Feyenoord, despite losing key players like Luis Sinisterra and Tyrell Malacia.

Arne was quick to adapt to these situations without changing his fundamentals and dominated rivals like Ajax and PSV to secure the 2022-23 Eredivisie title.

“Before his second season, he lost a lot of key players… People doubted the new players who arrived and said he would need time to get things right, but he proved them wrong.”

Dirk Kuyt elucidated.

These instances show Arne Slot’s calibre and what he can offer despite the speculations regarding him not proving himself at the highest level of European football.

As the Klopp era has almost come to an end, it would be interesting to monitor how Liverpool undergo the transition under Slot.
