LONDON, May 20 (Xinhua) -- Liverpool have confirmed Feyenoord coach Arne Slot as their new head coach with an announcement on their official website.

"Liverpool Football Club can announce Arne Slot has agreed a deal to become the club's new head coach, formally taking up the position on June 1, 2024, subject to a work permit."

"The 45-year-old will join the Reds from Feyenoord ahead of the 2024-25 season after a deal was reached with the Eredivisie club for his services," explained Liverpool.

Slot's arrival to replace Klopp has been an open secret in recent days and Jurgen Klopp even lead the supporters at Liverpool's Anfield Stadium in chanting his name as he said 'goodbye' after a Sunday's 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, which ended the season.

Slot joins Liverpool after three years at Feyenoord in which he led them to the 2023 Eredivisie title which was their first title in six years, and this year he followed that success by leading them to the Dutch Cup in April.
