Football Manager predicts Arne Slott will be sacked in February and current Liverpool manager will be replaced by current Premier League manager

Football Manager predicts Arne Slott will be sacked midway through his first season at Liverpool.

Slott, who currently coaches Feyenoord, is expected to succeed Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool coach.

The Dutchman has revealed his intentions to take charge of Liverpool and a deal could be agreed at the end of the weekend.

90Min ran a simulation on Football Manager 24 to see how Slot would perform at Anfield.

In the simulation, Slott was appointed Liverpool manager after beating Tottenham Hotspur’s Anj Postkoglu.

Slott has opted for a 4-2-3-1 formation that has proved successful in pre-season and also has Benfica winger Ricardo Horta, who joined before Klopp left. The new manager also opted to use Trent Alexander-Arnold in midfield.

However, Slott has had a challenging start to the season, with Liverpool suffering five defeats in their first 12 games, at the hands of Aston Villa, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

Things improved for Slott in October and November, before he signed midfielder Maurits Kjaergaard from Red Bull Salzburg in January for £40.5m.

However, by 2025, things have taken a turn for the worse for Liverpool and Slott. Defeats to Norwich and Nottingham Forest increased the pressure on the manager, although Liverpool did progress in the Champions League with a win over Red Star Belgrade.

Slott didn’t last long as he was sacked in the simulation following defeats to Chelsea and Manchester United in February.

Mohamed Salah struggled to thrive under Slott and lacked his usual composure in front of goal.

In the simulation, Slott was replaced as Liverpool manager by Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi, who had previously been linked with the position in real life.
