Achterberg joins Reds

10 June 2009 01:03
Veteran player-coach John Achterberg has left Tranmere to take up a post as goalkeeping coach at Liverpool. The 37-year-old Dutchman, who spent 11 years at Prenton Park and made over 300 appearances for Rovers, will work with the reserve and youth team goalkeepers at Anfield. Achterberg told the Liverpool Daily Post: "This is a dream chance - I need to take it with both hands. "It`s a massive wrench for me to leave Tranmere after so many years, the fans have always been so great to me and hopefully they always will be. "I`d like to think the Tranmere fans will understand my move, however, as I`m joining one of the best clubs in the world."
