Slot silence, Carvalho’s future & Inacio interest – Latest Liverpool FC News

Arne Slot‘s silence after becoming Liverpool head coach has curiously continued on Monday, on a day that also saw the club celebrate its 132nd birthday.


Slot’s silence continues

Slot officially took charge at Liverpool on Saturday, but you wouldn’t really know it!

Since then, it has largely been radio silence at Anfield, with no official first interview released and a generally low-key feel.

We would expect plenty of content imminently, but having been Liverpool manager for three days now, it seems odd that nothing of note has been said yet.

Maybe we’re just impatient!
