Arne Slot says he intends to continue as the manager of Feyenoord, ruling himself out of consideration for the Tottenham manager position.
After Antonio Conte was fired in March, the 44-year-old Dutchman was frequently mentioned as a potential transfer target for Spurs.
On Wednesday, Slot conducted discussions with the Rotterdam-based team about a prospective contract extension. Slot guided Feyenoord to the 2022–23 Eredivisie title.
Slot had this to say:
“I have been hearing a lot of rumours going around about other interest in me,” said Slot.
“Although I am thankful, my wish is to stay at Feyenoord and continue working on what we created last year.
“There is not – and there has not been – transfer conversation and yesterday’s meeting was exclusively for an extension. All talks with the club have always been only in that sense. Looking forward to next season with Feyenoord”.
Cristian Stellini was hired as Spurs’ interim manager when Conte was fired, however he was fired after only four games.
After serving as the interim manager for a brief while after the conclusion of the 2020–21 season, Ryan Mason assumed control of the position once more.
Spurs have only collected four points from six games during his six games in charge and On Sunday, they meet relegation-threatened Leeds in their final game of the season.
