Jermaine Pennant admitted in an interview with the “Liverpool Echo” that he is concerned about the employment of Arne Slot by Liverpool. The former Reds player has concerns that the Dutch coach may follow in the footsteps of his countryman – Erik ten Hag.

It’s the end of an era for Liverpool. At the end of the season, Jurgen Klopp will leave the team. The German coach enjoyed many successes with the Reds, but this stage is coming to an end. From the next campaign, Arne Slot, who previously managed Feyenoord Rotterdam, will be on the bench of the Anfield club.

Jermaine Pennant shared his opinion on the selection of a new coach. The former footballer is concerned about the Dutch coach’s arrival at Liverpool. The 41-year-old has concerns that Arne Slot may end up like Erik ten Hag, who is going through a very bad period at Manchester United.

Honestly, I’m worried about Slot’s arrival. I’m afraid that he may become the second Ten Hage who couldn’t find his way in the English league. I am in no way depreciating the Dutch league. However, it is not really a league requiring constant competition. We saw this when Ajax Ten Haga advanced to the semi-finals of the Champions League and lost to Tottenham. Back then, the team from Amsterdam was the hegemon in the country and enjoyed the championship every year, said Jermaine Pennant

Now Ten Hag is on the verge of being fired by Manchester United. Moving from the Dutch league to the Premier League is a serious step, so it worries me very much that Slot could be the second Ten Hag – added the former English footballer.
