Liverpool Legend says he 'knew nothing' about Arne Slot prior to Anfield appointment

Arne Slot faces big baggage of expectations upon arrival at Anfield this summer

Liverpool legend, Robbie Fowler, recently confessed that he was entirely oblivious of Arne Slot before hearing about his potential association with Liverpool. The club icon had to resort to Google for more information about the Dutch manager.

Fowler's admission comes in light of recent reports linking Slot with a move to Anfield. According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool's appointment of Slot is confirmed as an agreement has been reached on the contract details with Feyenoord. This news caught many by surprise, including Fowler who admitted: "I dived into Google to check him out."

Robbie Fowler, Former Liverpool striker, said:

"I’ll be honest, I hadn’t a clue Slot was even in the conversation among the power brokers who run Liverpool. He wasn’t someone who jumped out at me as a candidate. In fact, I knew nothing about Slot at all or the way he plays and, ­probably like many people, I dived into Google to check him out."

"He’s done OK at Feyenoord the last couple of seasons, but only time will tell if he can take Liverpool to greater heights than Klopp managed. That will be a tall order, but the more pressing problem for Liverpool is getting some stability back into players feeling the effects of Jurgen’s imminent departure. They’ve had nearly nine years of Klopp at ­Liverpool and suddenly everything is about to change."

Arne Slot has lot work to succeed Klopp

In his column for The Mirror, Fowler discussed Jurgen Klopp's final season at Anfield and shared his thoughts on the impending arrival of Feyenoord manager Arne Slot. As a former striker for Liverpool himself, Fowler brings a unique perspective on this transition period for the club.

While he did not disclose much about what he discovered during his research on Slot, it is clear that this appointment marks a significant change in leadership for Liverpool.

Liverpool are virtually out for the title race

As fans and players alike adjust to this new development within their beloved club, they also have an upcoming Premier League match against Spurs scheduled for 5th May. This game will be closely watched by supporters worldwide as they anticipate how these changes might impact team dynamics and performance.

This new chapter in Liverpool's history promises to be an exciting one for sports fans and sports betting enthusiasts alike.
