Liverpool have named Pep Segura as the club's new reserve team coach.

The club's academy technical director takes over the second string for the remainder of the season, replacing John McMahon, who has been in charge of the Liverpool second string since July 2009.

A structural move as part of the Reds future plans, Segura was previously part of the Barcelona youth team coaching set-up, helping to develop such talents as Cesc Fabregas and Anders Iniesta during their early years. U16 coach Steve Cooper will become the assistant.

"The club have conducted a thorough review of all operations based at our academy as part of our overall strategy to constantly improve our youth and professional player performance," said a Liverpool spokesperson.

"Pep Segura will step in as reserve-team manager on a temporary basis for the remainder of this term only, before a revised structure is put in place this summer."

The Anfield academy is famed for it's development of young talent, with a plethora of starlets currently on the books at Liverpool and the future looking bright.


Melwood remains the envy of Barclays Premier League clubs across the country, and the restructuring suggests Liverpool are looking to maintain their status as one of the top footballing clubs in the world, with youngsters developing through the second string.

"We have a clear vision of the way ahead and a number of changes will now be put in place to help us to build on the considerable progress already made," the Liverpool spokesman concluded.
