Arend Martijn Slot (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈɑrnə ˈslɔt]; born 17 September 1978) is a Dutch professional football coach and former player who is the head coach of Feyenoord.

Playing career[edit]

Slot played as midfielder for PEC Zwolle, NAC Breda and Sparta Rotterdam.

Coaching career[edit]

Slot begun his coaching career in 2013, working as a youth coach at PEC Zwolle for a year, before being appointed as an assistant coach at Cambuur, a position he held until 2017. He was then hired by AZ as an assistant to John van den Brom, before being promoted to head coach in 2019.[1] In his first season in charge, the Eredivisie was cancelled midway due to the COVID-19 pandemic. AZ came in second based on goal difference, although no winner was determined. On December 5th 2020 he was sacked as head coach of AZ for not being focused on the team, having recently negotiated a deal with Feyenoord, despite earning 2.11 points per game in the Eredivisie, the highest of any AZ-coach in history. [2]

On 15 December 2020, Feyenoord announced that the club had reached a deal with Slot for him to become the club's new coach from the start of the 2021–22 season in Eredivisie. The deal will see Slot sign for 2 years, with Feyenoord having the option to extend his contract for a third year. At Feyenoord, Slot succeeded the experienced Dick Advocaat, who led the team to a 5th place in the Eredivisie and qualification to the UEFA Conference League Qualifiers. Slot was appointed to build a new team with a recognisable playing style. Marino Pusic was appointed as his first assistant coach, while John de Wolf was retained as second assistant coach. Robin van Persie was added to his staff as a field coach.
