Arne Slot, Feyenoord boss, has declined to comment on the increasing reports linking him with the Tottenham job, but admits it would be hard to resist a move to the Premier League. Slot lifted the Eredivisie title with Feyenoord last weekend in just his second season at the club, playing a very exciting brand of football along the way. When asked if he is aware that he is now the frontrunner to take over at Spurs, Slot replied: “That’s a question or is that for you to tell me? I just said to your [Dutch] colleagues, ‘Next question’ but I already gave a few times an answer to a certain question but like I said, this is not the moment to talk about this.” He also expressed his ambition to test himself in the Premier League, saying: “When it comes to Holland, the next step will not be at another club in Holland. If that is the next step I’ve failed completely in the upcoming few years. So the normal next step would be to go abroad and I’ve always said that the best league in the world is the Premier League.” Slot also highlighted his ability to take on a challenge, saying: “I think every coach has both and I have proved that I like to go for a challenge when I was at AZ and I came to Feyenoord. Everybody two years ago said how on earth can you go from a club where there’s such a good structure towards a club where everybody – especially two journalists in the front row – were saying it was going to be a tough moment to step in. So that was already a challenge and we took that, not only me the complete staff, and that’s why I’m privileged to say now that we’re the champions of Holland.” With Slot now appearing to be the clear favourite for the job, it remains to be seen whether he will make the move to Tottenham or stay with Feyenoord.
