McMahon accepts Anfield offer

John McMahon is to leave his coaching role at Shrewsbury and join Liverpool as reserve-team coach. McMahon joined Shrewsbury from Tranmere in 2005, but admits the lure of a move to Merseyside was too great. He is now looking forward to working with manager Rafa Benitez as the Reds chase the Premier League title. "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," he told the club's official website. "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. "Ultimately I would have liked to have left the club with them being promoted but it wasn't the case. "I've really enjoyed my time with Shrewsbury and the chairman, manager, the staff, players and spectators have been fantastic to me."
