Arne Slott has signed a new contract with Feyenoord.
Feyenoord announced on the 26th (Korean time) through the club’s website, “Coach Slott has agreed to extend his contract with Feyenoord until 2026. Slott, who led Feyenoord to their 16th title in club history this season, has signed a one-year contract and will remain with the club until mid-2026.”
“We had a great season with Feyenoord, winning the title was a great reward for all the hard work we put in, but I want to continue to develop. After the summer, an adventure in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) awaits us, and we have to defend our title. We have a lot to look forward to, and that’s why I’m proud to be staying at Feyenoord.”
Slott was initially tipped to be Tottenham’s next manager. In charge of Feyenoord since last season, Slott led the club to an early league title this season after finishing third in the league and runners-up in the UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL) in his first campaign. Feyenoord reached the top of the Dutch Eredivisie for the first time in six years. In their search for a new manager, Tottenham turned to Slott, who was young, promising, and skilled.안전놀이터
Once linked, Slott’s name was consistently brought up when talking about Tottenham’s new managerial candidates. “For me, the best stage in the world is the English Premier League (EPL),” Slott said at the press conference, “and I’ll see you in London. The sun is in London, and I’m going to go where the sun is,” hinting at a parting of the ways with Feyenoord, further raising expectations among Spurs fans.
However, Slott has since confirmed that he will remain at Feyenoord. “I’ve heard a lot of rumours that other clubs are interested in me,” Slott told Dutch outlet AD. I appreciate the interest, but I want to stay at Feyenoord and continue the work we started last year,” he said.
Slott told ‘AD’: “There were no discussions about leaving, we negotiated to extend my contract. All my dialogue with the club has always been in that direction. I am looking forward to the next season with Feyenoord.”
In the end, news of Tottenham’s interest in Slott’s services only served to raise his price tag. Spurs had been rejected again, and unintentionally used.
