Arne Slot is not just mentioned as successor to Dick Advocate at Feyenoord. According to Valentijn Driessen, chief football of De Cceit, ‘there is something’ between the Rotterdammers and the successful practice master of AZ.
“I already mentioned it myself. Slot is the crown prince of the Dutch trainer guild and already has international experience at AZ”, says Driessen on the newspaper‘s website. “He’s doing very well. AZ plays very recognizable football and there is a lot of talent flow. That‘s all Feyenoord wants. I understand very well that Feyenoord focuses his arrows on Arne Slot.”
After the Europa League duel with Napoli (1-1), the 42-year-old coach of AZ already dealt with the possible interest of Feyenoord. “I think if we play as well as we do, almost every player will be in the interest of any club. And if every player would answer these questions, I would find it very annoying, because it would distract from what we’re doing, namely performing very well with AZ. So let the trainer set a very good example by not going into that in any way until there is something to report. As long as there is nothing, you will not hear anything,” he said.
Driessen thought that statement was striking. “He didn‘t actually deny anything. But he could have just said, “Feyenoord?” No question of it. There’s something going on there.” Feyenoord Transfermarkt claimed earlier on the day that the Rotterdammers are even in far-reaching negotiations with Slot.
Whether that is true, can be seen, but Driessen understands that Slot is open for a switch to the title competitor. “Feyenoord is a much bigger club, much more appealing. History continues to draw. And if you put something there, you can get out of here a lot easier. But it is also true that he is at the top of the list at Ajax when Erik ten Hag leaves.”
“I think there is a chance that Ten Hag is working on his senior year. Then should Ajax possibly switch if they want to have Slot. If I am Ajax, I would take into account that this is going on between Feyenoord and Slot.”
