With Michael Edwards, the new FSG chief of football, leading the hunt for a manager, it is believed that Arne Slot is Liverpool’s first choice. Gary Neville has a notion regarding Slot’s potential involvement.

The announcement of Liverpool’s new manager is rapidly approaching, and it will be Michael Edwards’ largest early choice in his new job as FSG’s “CEO of football.” Arne Slot appears to have been chosen to succeed Jürgen Klopp.

The Feyenoord manager is generally seen as a slightly unexpected choice, but since the unbeaten Xabi Alonso declared he would be staying at Bayer Leverkusen, there hasn’t been a very obvious favorite to fill the role. Sporting manager Rúben Amorim was declared the front-runner after that information, but it now seems unlikely.

Liverpool lined up many other ducks before appointing the new member, including Edwards, who rejoined FSG after stepping down as sporting director in 2022. Since then, he has appointed Richard Hughes as the new sporting director, and it is believed that he is also considering making further hires.

Before the Merseyside derby, Gary Neville said on Sky Sports that he could see Edwards’ fingerprints on Slot’s possible appointment. In addition, he offered his own hypothesis regarding the data guru’s visit to Liverpool.

Regarding Slot’s possible arrival at Anfield, Neville stated, “It’ll be something that obviously has been driven by Michael Edwards and the team there in terms of sort of wanting a different type of approach.” “Perhaps the conflict and personality test with Klopp were the reasons Michael Edwards left Liverpool all those years ago.

“At this point, he’s asserting his authority and bringing in a player he believes can propel Liverpool forward. We’ve seen that the careers of Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United and Wenger at Arsenal have both been challenging, so we’re not sure how that will work out. Liverpool must strive to get that right because Klopp is a huge figure there.”
