We certainly did not rush into the search for a new coach,” said Dennis te Kloese, technical director of Feyenoord, in a statement on Wednesday.

“It was a process that lasted many months, in which several colleagues besides myself were closely involved and many coaches were intensively followed to see who best fitted our desired profile.

“As a club, we want to build on the growth we have experienced and the successes we have achieved in recent years.

“After going through that process, Brian Priske turned out to be the logical and best choice for everyone involved.”

Priske also won the Danish championship with FC Midtjylland in 2020, and he coached Royal Antwerp in Belgium for one season.

He played in the Belgian league with Racing Genk and Club Brugge, as well as with Portsmouth in England.

Feyenoord finished second in the league this season under Slot, but won the cup. Slot, who led them to the title in 2023, will replace Juergen Klopp at Liverpool.
