'It's why Liverpool "scouted" me': Slot explains his tactical approach

Arne Slot was asked if his style of play is similar to that of Jurgen Klopp in the Dutchman's first interview with Liverpool's media team.

The 45-year-old replied in detail, explaining what has influenced and inspired him as a manager.

Slot said: "I think there are [similarities] and I think that is also one of the reasons why I came in, because I think the way Liverpool 'scouted' me, they were looking for, not the exact same type, but I think when something has been successful [with] a certain way of playing you would like to extend this or to go on with this. This is probably one of the reasons they came to me as well.

"Yeah, it is my style but I think it is the style of many modern coaches at the moment: we were all a bit inspired because of the rivalry between City and Liverpool.

"We were all inspired by Guardiola and Klopp and I think at a big club, which I worked in in Feyenoord as well, it is probably the only style you can play – to have the ball a lot, to have a lot of energy, and I think also now there are comparisons between the club I left behind and the club I am going to work for now.

"Both [sets of] fans love to see a team that wants to do everything to win a game and if things are tough they try to do everything to turn the game around and I think that has been done by Liverpool many times and I think that has been done by my former side Feyenoord many times as well."
