Assistant manager John McMahon is to leave Shrewsbury`s coaching staff to take up a new role with Premier League giants Liverpool.

McMahon joined the club from Tranmere four years ago but is set to become reserve-team manager at Anfield.

"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."
