Arne Slot does not believe managing Liverpool will be more difficult than what he has done at Feyenoord.

The Dutchman is due to be announced as Jurgen Klopp’s replacement in the coming weeks, marking the start of a new era at Anfield.

Slot led his Eredivisie side to the title last season and was linked with the Tottenham job before it was given to Ange Postecoglou.

But he is now set to finally make the switch to England as Klopp looks to wind down and relax for a while following a nine-year reign on Merseyside.

Slot has big shoes to fill but is joining a club that will give him time and patience like with his predecessor.

However, the 45-year-old does not think he will need time to adapt and is expecting a challenge similar to what he has experienced in his homeland.

He said: “I think that almost every trainer of a top club is on the edge of being overworked.

“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.

“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.”
