But now he has revealed that he will stay in the Netherlands next season.

As reported by a Dutch media company ADVERTISEMENT, He said: “I’ve heard a lot about other clubs’ interest in me.”

“I’m grateful for the appreciation this shows, but my wish is to stay at Feyenoord and continue to build on the foundations that have been laid over the past two seasons.”

“There are no transfer talks going on and there haven’t been any, and yesterday’s discussion was all about a possible extension.”

“All talks with Feyenoord aim at just that. I’m looking forward to the new season at Feyenoord.”

The news comes just three days after he reportedly agreed to join the club in the summer.

Over the weekend, Feyenoord general manager Dennis te Kloese told ESPN: “[Slot] still has a two-year contract. That has already been said and no club has approached us yet.

“It’s up to Arne to say something about it [his future]. But for us there is no ambiguity about this. We assume that he will stay as Feyenoord coach.”


As for his own future, Slot said: “Everyone needs clarity quickly.” [rejected] Leeds in winter and now I stay or go.

“My departure can also be good for the club, but if there is no dream club, I will stay.”

“It’s normal in football to talk to clubs. I’m not saying I’ve done that now, but it’s not forbidden for me to speak to other clubs.”

Slot joined Feyenoord in 2021 and, at the end of his first season as coach, led them to the Europa Conference League final, which they lost to Roma.

And he has continued this year, guiding the Dutch side to their first Eredivisie title in six years.

Slot’s withdrawal from the Spurs boss race comes after Xabi Alonso and Vincent Kompany already self-excluded.

Those still in the squad include Julian Nagelsmann, Luis Enrique, Luciano Spalletti and Brendan Rodgers.
