Liverpool sack Mike Marsh in backroom reshuffle

Football News

Liverpool have released first team coach Mike Marsh following the club’s end-of-season review, reports the Liverpool Echo.

The Reds slumped to seventh place in the Premier League this season and Marsh seems to be the first casualty after a disappointing campaign in which Liverpool never really mounted a challenge for the top-four.

Marsh's contract at Liverpool expires this month and at a meeting this week with Brendan Rodgers, Tom Werner and Fenway Sports Group executive Mike Gordon, the decision was made to part ways with the 45-year-old.

The decision was made in what was described to be a “comprehensive plan for improvement” by the club.

The news will come as a shock to many as Marsh had, up to his sacking, spent six years at the club, joining as an academy coach in 2009.

Marsh played over 100 times for Liverpool in a four-year spell at the club.

Other changes

Goalkeeping coach John Achterberg has retained his position despite ruling over a torrid season for Liverpool’s number one goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

It is still unclear as to whether Rodgers himself will be released from his position despite guiding Liverpool to second place the season before last, missing out on the Premier League title by just two points.
