After clinching the league title in the 2022-23 season, Feyenoord rocked it by earning a well-deserved spot in the prestigious Champions League. Arne Slot made sure his squad was fired up and ready to give it their all on the grand stage.

Feyenoord had their sights set on something remarkable: securing three consecutive home wins in the Champions League for the first time ever! And guess what? They did it!

Their victory against Lazio was incredible, with a fantastic score of 3-1. The match was made even more special by the outstanding performance of Mexico’s own Santiago Gimenez, who scored two goals, and Ramiz Zerrouki, who added another to the tally. With this impressive win, Feyenoord claimed the top spot in Champions League Group E.


The Dutch Cup Final between Feyenoord and NEC Nijmegen was a nail-biting showdown. It was such an intense battle, but Feyenoord showed their determination and managed to secure a hard-fought victory with a score of 1-0. This win marked Arne Slot’s second trophy as the manager of Feyenoord, and now he can proudly say that he has completed the domestic set!

The final was a close one, with Feyenoord having more shots on target and dominating possession. In the 59th minute, the Brazilian striker Igor Paixao came through with a brilliant goal, slotting the ball into the bottom left corner. It was a moment of pure excitement and joy for the team and fans alike. Feyenoord held on to their lead and ultimately lifted the trophy in celebration.

At the trophy presentation, the whole team celebrated in downtown Rotterdam! It was such an amazing moment that highlighted the incredible turnaround Feyenoord had experienced under the leadership of manager Arne Slot.

During his time in charge, Slot has guided the club to the league title, the cup, and even the final of the Conference League. Not to mention those epic victories against their eternal rivals, Ajax.

Slot himself expressed his happiness with the prize, saying, “Of course, I’m thrilled about this reward. It may not compare to the joy of winning a league title, but it’s a testament to our resilience throughout the season. We’ve been tough to beat, and we’ve continued to grow and improve. Plus, we haven’t lost a single match in 2024!”


They matched the record for the biggest knockout win by crushing Shakhtar Donetsk with a stunning 7-1 victory. With an overall aggregate score of 8-2, Feyenoord advanced to the last eight in style. A match that will be remembered for years to come.

The goal scorers were on fire! Santiago Gimenez, Orkun Kökçü, Oussama Idrissi, Alireza Jahanbakhsh, and Danilo all made their mark with some stunning goals. The way they found the back of the net was truly impressive, Shakhtar couldn’t get past them.

Arne Slot was over the moon with the result. In his press conference, he expressed his excitement, saying, “It was unreal how we quickly took control of the match. I’m so proud of my players for their efficiency in front of the goal. They were determined to get a good result and it showed.’


Losing the last four, Feyenoord couldn’t secure a win in their European matches away. In a thrilling Europa League encounter, Feyenoord faced AS Roma but unfortunately came up short in their quest for victory. The Dutch side’s struggles continued as they remained winless in nine European matches, with their latest defeat marking the fourth consecutive loss.

AS Roma secured their spot in the Europa League last 16 after a nail-biting penalty shootout. The match reached a 1-1 draw in extra time. Roma goalkeeper Mile Svilar showcased his exceptional skills, making incredible saves to deny Feyenoord’s David Hancko and Alireza Jahanbakhsh.

Feyenoord’s coach, Arne Slot, expressed his disappointment in a post-match press conference. This marked the third year in a row that his team faced the same outcome against Roma, adding to the frustration. He vocalizes, “Was this more painful than the Conference League final defeat? Perhaps it can seem like it because it’s a penalty shootout, but a final hurts more. We were close to qualifying, it’s true, but it’s not the same as a final.”

Despite the positive performance displayed by Feyenoord, Slot couldn’t hide his disappointment, emphasizing the difficulty of coming so close but falling short. Slot comments, “I don’t like losing, and even less when it’s always at the hands of the same team. We played a positive match, 1-1 was a good result in this stadium.”

Slot also praises, ‘We must recognize the merits of our opponent, and more specifically, Pellegrini who is a great player who scored a wonderful goal.” He highlighted the pride in being eliminated by a strong team like Roma, as opposed to smaller opponents. Slot drew a parallel to last year’s defeat, where Dybala made the difference, emphasizing the impact of key players in decisive moments.


Feyenoord’s UEFA Champions League journey came to a close with a narrow 2-1 defeat against Celtic. Yankuba Minteh provided a glimmer of hope for the Rotterdammers with a solitary goal at Celtic Park in Glasgow. However, a late strike by Gustaf Lagerbielke secured the victory for Brendan Rodgers’s side, following Luis Palma’s first-half penalty.

Arne Slot made an interesting tactical decision by giving Thomas Beelen a starting role at center-back. The 22-year-old replaced Gernot Trauner, making it his first appearance in the Champions League this season. Although Feyenoord couldn’t qualify for the last 16 and Celtic couldn’t catch them for a Europa League spot, this match was still important for pride.

Looking ahead, Slot acknowledged the strength of Celtic as a top club with talented players. He expects them to bounce back from their recent loss, especially with a full stadium. Slot also mentioned that he studied Celtic’s previous matches against Atletico and Lazio, finding their performances impressive despite not getting the results they deserved.


In a highly anticipated match, PSV Eindhoven emerged victorious with a stunning 2-1 win over title rivals Feyenoord at de Kuip. The result has propelled PSV to a commanding ten-point lead at the top of the Eredivisie table.

Ismael Saibari and Oliver Boscagli were the heroes for PSV, finding the back of the net to secure the crucial victory. The goals not only showcased their skill but also highlighted the team’s determination to claim the top spot.

The match saw some surprising lineup decisions from both teams. Peter Bosz, the PSV manager, raised eyebrows by starting Jerdy Schouten at center-back, a move that saw Andre Ramalho relegated to the bench. Oliver Boscagli stepped up to fill the other center-back position admirably.

On the other side, Feyenoord’s coach, Arne Slot, also made changes to his side. Ramiz Zerrouki and Luka Ivanusec were brought into the lineup, replacing Yankuba Minteh and Igor Paixao.

In the post-match press conference, Slot acknowledged that their performance was telling of their approach to the match. He admitted that there was an element of underestimating the opponent, a lesson they need to learn from moving forward.


With this victory, PSV has firmly established themselves as the team to beat in the Eredivisie. Their ten-point lead showcases their dominance and sets them up as strong contenders for the title.

As the season progresses, both teams will undoubtedly continue to battle for supremacy. Feyenoord had to bounce back from this defeat and learn from their mistakes, while PSV will aim to maintain their impressive form.

Can the 45-year-old Dutch coach lead the club to more trophies? Slot could bring a fresh European approach to Liverpool. Only time will tell if Arne Slot can make a positive impact and help Liverpool continue their rich history.
