Liverpool transfer news
Marsh, pictured above with Brendan Rodgers and assistant manager Colin Pascoe, has been with the club in a coaching position since 2009, having originally started life at Anfield as a player between 1987 and 1993.
As the Liverpool Echo reports, he was initially appointed as an Academy coach before being promoted to U18s coach two years later. He then stepped up to the first team following Rodgers’ appointment in 2012. His contract expires at the end of the month and the club have informed him that he will be leaving us.
It’s a decision which follows this week’s ‘positive’ meeting between Rodgers, club chairman Tom Werner, and Fenway Sports Group executive Mike Gordon. The Echo expects the major shake-up of our back-room staff to continue over the coming weeks as FSG strive to implement their ‘comprehensive plan for improvement’.
It’s also confirmed in the report that goalkeeping coach John Achterberg has survived the review.
