New Liverpool boss Arne Slot is hoping to get his ideas through to his players as quickly as possible ahead of their opening game against Ipswich Town.

The Dutchman has replaced legendary manager Jürgen Klopp at Anfield, having left Feyenoord at the end of the 2023/24 campaign after three years in Rotterdam.

He's yet to manage a competitive game outside of the Netherlands, with his first Premier League fixture coming against newly-promoted Ipswich at Portman Road on August 17th.

He's got a lot of work to do between now and then, however, with a number of players away at Euro 2024 and the Copa America. Nonetheless, he's determined that his side will be ready when they travel to Suffolk to play the Blues in 58 days' time.

“In pre-season it's all about getting players fit and getting your game idea, your game model, into the players," he said via Liverpool's official website.

“We have quite a lot of training time with a few of them; and it depends how far players will go into the tournaments they are playing, how much time we have to work with these players. 

“The playing style will not be completely different, but it would be strange if we would do exactly similar things, because although I'm the replacement of Jürgen Klopp, I'm not exactly similar to him.

“So we'll try with the players who come in at the beginning, which is quite a lot of them already, to implement our idea of football as soon as we can. And when the rest come in a bit later, hopefully the ones who are there already can help us as a coaching staff so that they know what is being expected. 

“Probably it will go as fast as possible because we have to be ready for the first game with Ipswich away.”
