On Monday, we revealed that Ruben Peeters will be Liverpool’s new first team lead physical performance coach this summer.

In an interview with NOS, Van Dijk has all but confirmed that Sipke Hulshoff will also be coming in, having quit as Ronald Koeman’s assistant with the Netherlands before Euro 2024.

“I am very happy for him (Slot) and his family,” Van Dijk said.

“And also for Sipke (Hulshoff) of course, despite the fact that he will not be here (at the Netherlands camp).”

Things are taking shape very nicely for Slot, ahead of officially taking over the reins on June 1.
