Cody Gakpo fires warning to Arne Slot with Euro 2024 performance

Cody Gakpo continued his fine performances for the Netherlands national team, scoring a goal in their latest 2024 European Championship game on Tuesday.

The Liverpool forward pulled the Oranje back into the game after going behind against Austria. This was his second goal at Euro 2024. He also scored a vital equaliser against Poland in their group opener.

Gakpo’s movement has been elite. His directness and eagerness to cause danger are palpable, while his creativity has also been on display.

The forward’s performances will put Liverpool boss Arne Slot on alert ahead of the new season.

Gakpo has struggled to nail down a starting berth since his move from the Eredivisie in January 2023 but could be set for a new lease of life under the new manager.

The Eindhoven-born star can be a potent weapon for Slot’s side next term as they look to compete on all fronts.

With Luis Diaz struggling to find his clinical touch on the left wing, Gakpo can step up to replace the Colombian winger.

Gakpo has delivered the goods as a central striker, but it is clear he is better on the left side of the attack, cutting in to shoot, create or combine with his teammates.

The 25-year-old’s resurgent form with the Netherlands is a timely reminder of his talent and potential.

With a fresh start under a new manager and a point to prove, Gakpo could be primed for a breakout season at Anfield.
