Slot responds to Liverpool gesture from Feyenoord fans during final match

LIVERPOOL 

Arne Slot has made no secret of his desire to take the Liverpool job and confirmed he was heading for Anfield when he faced the media on Friday. The Dutchman’s final match in charge of Feyenoord was a big one too with Excelsior the visitors in the Rotterdam derby.

Ahead of kick-off at De Kuip, the home support paid tribute to its title-winning boss unveiling a huge banner depicting Slot alongside the words ‘Walk on, Walk on’.

The message was a clear nod to his imminent move to Anfield with the words featuring in the lyrics to Liverpool’s iconic You’ll Never Walk Alone anthem. Slot gave his nod of approval to the banner during his pre-match interview.

He laughed with ESPN: “I think it turned out well, yes. Sometimes my head is a little bit too big but this time it is right!”

Feyenoord had earlier posted a montage clip on social media of Slot’s tenure, thanking him for his work with the club. The emotional video included the narration: “Every beginning has an end. Every end has a beginning. But the memories we made, they will last. Forever.

“We stood strong in Rotterdam, in the Netherlands, at Europe’s highest stage. We received compliments and won prizes. Now we are letting you go, Arne. With pride, we will build on the foundation you laid.

“Thank you for everything. For winning the league and the cup, thanks for the football, for the memories. Walk on coach, with us in your heart.”
