Speaking to FeyenoordPings, former Premier League midfielder Ibrahim Afellay believes Arne Slot will join Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur have recently emerged as a potential destination for Feyenoord manager Arne Slot, as reports suggest that the Dutchman could make the move to the north London club.

Arne Slot, a 44-year-old with an impressive managerial record, led Feyenoord to clinch the Eredivisie title this season, catching the attention of many top clubs across Europe. Tottenham are touted to be interested in him.

During his tenure at Feyenoord, Slot has undoubtedly maximized the potential of his squad, extracting more from his players than many thought possible. This is what has caught the eye of most people around the world.

Slot’s progressive approach to the game aligns well with Tottenham’s philosophy of attacking football, which has long been cherished by the club’s supporters. The appointment of a manager who shares this vision could provide the team with a much-needed rejuvenation and a renewed sense of purpose.

Speaking about such a scenario, here is what Afellay had to say about Arne Slot and his chances at Tottenham

“If that club applies, you have to be a big boy to refuse. I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes then. Tottenham Hotspur is a great club, very different from Southampton or Aston Villa. At Feyenoord, Slot reached the maximum, he got more out than in. Do you expect him to reach the Champions League final next year?”

Slot’s attacking mindset and tactical astuteness have made him an appealing choice for Tottenham, as they strive to bring back the glory days to their loyal fanbase. Let’s hope we get him.

However, his appointment is not without its constraints though. The appointment of a manager without a proven track record at the highest level might not fully appease the fans’ desire for immediate success.
