John McMahon joins Liverpool as reserve-team coach

Rafa’s summer shake up of the academy continues as John McMahon joins Liverpool as reserve-team coach reports Sky Sports News. McMahon will leave his coaching role Shrewsbury and admits the lure of a move to the Reds was too great. Speaking about the move McMahon said: “If any Premier League club comes knocking at your door it is something that you have to consider and with it being Liverpool it was a job that I couldn't refuse. To work with a manager of the quality of Rafa Benitez and an assistant manager like Sammy Lee is brilliant and it's a place where I can continue to learn and develop as a coach and hopefully give them something back.” McMahon spent eight years on the coaching staff of Tranmere Rovers, where he had two spells as caretaker manager, before becoming first-team coach at Shrewsbury Town in June 2006. He replaces Gary Ablett as Liverpool reserve team coach.
