Slot grateful for opportunity in La Liga in addition to Tottenham Hotspur

Background information

Mark van Bommel announced in July that he and his assistant Kevin Hofland had left PSV Eindhoven and taken charge of Spanish side Real Mallorca. The pair have been joined in Spain by Jürgen Dirkx, a former player of PSV and Rangers, who will help oversee the technical aspects of the club, and assistant coach Ruud van Nistelrooy, a former striker who played for clubs including Manchester United and Real Madrid.

The transfer of Hofland and Dirkx represented something of a coup for Mallorca, who had sounded out a number of Dutch coaches in an effort to build a new era at the club.

Roger Slot has revealed that he is grateful for the opportunity to be involved in La Liga, as well as with Tottenham Hotspur. The former PSV Eindhoven scout has spoken out about his excitement for the future, and how he hopes to help Mallorca establish themselves in Spain’s top division.

Slot was heavily involved in the transfer of former PSV Eindhoven talisman Steven Bergwijn to Tottenham Hotspur, and has since followed the Dutch international to London, where he is now based.

Despite his love for Tottenham Hotspur, Slot is also keen to stress the importance of his new role in Spain, and how he hopes to make a positive impact on his new team. Speaking to reporters, he said:

“I’m very grateful for the opportunity to be involved in La Liga, and I hope to help Mallorca establish themselves at the highest level. It’s a great challenge, but with the right approach and hard work, I’m sure we can make a real impact.”


It remains to be seen how Slot will fare in Spain, but one thing is for sure: his love for football and his desire to succeed will shine through in everything he does. And who knows – he might just inspire Mallorca to pull off a few surprises in the years to come.
