McMahon jumped at chance

08 Jun 2009 - 15:07:04

Shrewsbury Town assistant John McMahon revealed he jumped at the chance to work with a coach of the calibre of Rafa Benitez after taking up a role with Liverpool.

McMahon has left the New Meadow to become the Premier League club's new head reserve team coach.

"If any Premier League club comes knock at your door it 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.

"It is a very hands on coaching role and it gives the opportunity to work with some of the best coaches in the certainly Europe if not the world.

"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.

"It is tough to leave but I would like to think that I have done my part for Shrewsbury."
