‘Will join’: Journo spots online announcement that directly affects Liverpool this summer

Posted by

The departure of a significant portion of Liverpool’s backroom staff this summer will leave Richard Hughes and Michael Edwards with a serious void to fill.

One name that now looks like a dead-cert to join Arne Slot at Anfield is that of Feyenoord assistant Sipke Hulshoff.

The Dutchman’s assistant will already be known by the Reds’ Dutch contingent in Virgil van Dijk, Cody Gakpo and Ryan Gravenberch having also worked with the trio as part of Ronald Koemans’ team.

Lewis Steele has since shared on X (formerly Twitter) that the KNVB have already confirmed the 49-year-old’s departure from the international setup, paving the way for a move to L4.

That said, it has to be beneficial to Liverpool, not to mention Arne Slot’s adjustment in Merseyside, to have his assistant constantly to hand in his new job.

Virgil van Dijk has already spoken quite positively about Hulshoff’s tactical acumen. Hopefully, it fills the considerable void left by Pep Lijnders’ looming departure.

“You see what his qualities are and I personally certainly like that. Hopefully he can continue that well. He is very clear and tactically strong. I like the moments when he leads a training session. I think I also speak for the group,” the former Southampton man told vi.nl.
