Leny Yoro transfer update, Nunez ‘warning’ & Slot speaks – Latest LFC News

Liverpool supporters have finally heard from Arne Slot, with the boss announcing three new coaches, and there has been a transfer update on Leny Yoro.

 

Slot announces new goalkeeper coach

Almost a month after he was officially announced as Liverpool’s new head coach, Slot has finally given his first interview.

Among the topics covered were the reason for the long wait, his communication with players and his involvement in the transfer market.

However, the big news was the confirmation of Sipke Hulshoff as first assistant coach, Ruben Peeters as lead physical performance coach and Fabian Otte as the new goalkeeper coach.

Otte is the name unknown to supporters beforehand and will join following completion of his USA team’s campaign at this summer’s Copa America.
