Slot officially takes charge as Reds manager on June 1, ahead of what is hopefully the next great chapter in the club’s history.

The Dutchman won’t be able to work his magic alone, however, and Ruben Peeters has now been confirmed as part of his backroom staff.

The 32-year-old has been Slot’s head of performance at Feyenoord for the past three seasons, but his role at Anfield will be first team lead physical performance coach.

It looks like he will have a role similar to Andreas Kornmayer and Andreas Schlumberger, doing parts of their respective jobs under Klopp.
