As the dust settles on the news that Liverpool will be appointing Dutch manager Arne Slot as the man to take over at Anfield this summer, the excitement should keep growing.

He is a young, exciting manager that has a history of strong player development, winning trophies and all while playing an attractive style of football.

In light of that, as we welcome Mr. Slot to the best managing job in the world, we decided to give you a taste of some of his best work. We ranked four of his most impressive wins across his time with both AZ Alkmaar and Feyenoord.

4. March 1, 2020 - AZ Alkmaar 2 Ajax 0 - Eredivisie League

The 2019-20 season across the world, could be seen as a lost one for many clubs. The same rings true here. Slot led his Alkmaar side into Johan Cruyff Arena in a top of the table League tilt and dominated the legendary Ajax.

This win brought AZ level on points with Ajax in the Eredivisie and with nine games to go, some had them listed as the favorites for the title.

Unfortunately for Slot and AZ, the next week saw the season suspended and they were not given the chance to secure the title outright. However, the brave performance powered by goals from Myron Boadu and Oussama Idrissi was a sign of Slot's ability to galvanize his players for big games.

They defeated an Ajax side that featured the likes of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Ryan Gravenberch, Jurrien Timber and Edson Alvarez.

3. October 25, 2023 - Feyenoord 3 Lazio 1 - Champions League Group Stage

We have one that is very recent and illustrates the progress that Slot has continued to make at Feyenoord.

Following their league title success in the 2022-23 season, the Rotterdam side were granted Champions League access and Arne Slot would make sure his men would seize the moment to the best of their abilities.

A brace from Santiago Gimenez, a player that has blossomed under Slot, was the fuel for the victory before a Ramiz Zerrouki goal all but sealed the game.

Feyenoord outshot their Italian counterparts 15-8 while completing 87% of their passes as a team while shutting down proven international stars like Ciro Immobile and Luis Alberto.

2. April 21, 2024 - Dutch Cup Final - Feyenoord 1 NEC Nijmegen 0

We have a very recent one, as in this happened this past weekend. This was Slot's second trophy as Feyenoord manager as he now had the domestic set while in charge as this cup triumph joined the league title.

Feyenoord were the heavy favorites in this match, but as all football fans know, anything can happen in a Final.

This was a wild affair but Feyenoord got the only goal of the game through talented young winger Igor Paixao just before the hour mark. While they boasted more possession, shots and passes, NEC made them fight.

A late red card to Feyenoord winger Yankuba Minteh meant Arne Slot needed to calm his side down to get across the line. They did and lifted another trophy as a result.

1. April 28, 2022 - Feyenoord 3 Marseille 2 - Europa Conference League Semifinal Leg One

Arne Slot is no stranger to success in Europe as this list shows. There were other wins that could have made it but this one stands out as his best win. A European semifinal with a legendary club like Marseille coming to town is a huge moment for a club like Feyenoord.

In a thrilling match that saw end-to-end action ended with the hosts getting the upper hand in the tie. Future Premier League player Luis Sinisterra was on the scoresheet in addition to a huge brace from Cyriel Dessers, including his 46th minute strike that would prove to be the winner.

This was a match that forced Slot to adjust on the fly from his normally aggressive on-ball attacking methods. Marseille had 60% of the ball so Feyenoord expertly switched to a more counterattacking style and it paid off.

Showing the nerve and composure to deviate from what he loves to do on such a big stage is a great credit to Slot.

His Feyenoord side would survive the second leg before falling to Roma 1-0 in the Final.
