Feyenoord have officially confirmed that head coach Arne Slot has signed a new long-term deal at the club valid until the summer of 2026. Slot has put pen-to-paper on a new contract just days after talks between the 44-year-old and Tottenham Hotspur broke down.
Slot guided Feyenoord to their 16th Eredivisie title this season. In a statement on the club website, he said ‘I’m not done here yet. We have had a wonderful season with Feyenoord, with the championship as a wonderful reward for all the hard work that has been put in, but I really want to continue building.’
Slot joined Feyenoord in the summer of 2021, succeeding Dick Advocaat as manager. The former AZ head coach looked ahead to his future at Feyenoord, saying ‘After the summer, an adventure awaits in the Champions League and there is a national title to defend. Enough to look forward to, so I am proud to be and remain Feyenoord’s trainer in Rotterdam.’
Arne Slot has since told KuipTalk, ‘The clause for the summer of 2024 has been removed from my new contract. It was worth five million euros. There were multiple clubs interested but I spoke with only two of them abut their projects.’
