West Bromwich Albion

Former Leeds United managerial target named among favourites for top Premier League job

Victor Orta, the director of football of Leeds, then focused on Arne Slot after attempting in vain to sign Carlos Corberan from West Bromwich Albion and Andoni Iraola from Rayo Vallecano. Iraola was not willing to force his way out of the La Liga club, thus Rayo Vallecano stopped Leeds’ pursuit for him, and Corberan quickly signed a new contract at the Hawthorns. Then, until he rejected them, the Whites seemed to think Feyenoord boss Slot may be available. “With this one, I can state with certainty that I will remain with Feyenoord,” he declared. It is evident that supporters need not be afraid. The club has made its intentions known. The fact that a team like Leeds was interested was a compliment, but we are really succeeding with Feyenoord. In the league, the cup, and Europe, we are in a wonderful place. There isn’t any letdown. Staying here is by no means a punishment.”

After a game, BBC Leeds journalists saw the former Ajax manager Alfred Schreuder strolling across the Elland Road field. Although the club indicated he wasn’t a favorite for the job, the fans’ outcry put an abrupt end to that line of inquiry. After giving interim manager Michael Skubala some time in the position, Leeds finally selected Javi Gracia two weeks after firing Marsch. Sam Allardyce replaced Gracia after that, but Leeds were knocked out of the Premier League.

The post-Jurgen Klopp plan for Liverpool includes Slot, who was supposedly on Tottenham Hotspur’s wishlist prior to their hiring Ange Postecoglou. Thanks to a 2022–23 Eredivisie title and this season’s cup win, The Times reports that the 45-year-old’s body of work at Feyenoord has impressed Anfield decision makers. When the season came to a conclusion, Klopp made known in January that he was going to leave his role at Liverpool. They will be searching for a new manager in the summer, along with other prominent European teams like Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
