McMahon: Liverpool fantastic opportunity for me

John McMahon paid tribute to former clubs Tranmere Rovers and Shrewsbury as he was named new Liverpool reserves manager.

"I've worked with youth players right up to first-teamers, and I think I've proved myself at both clubs," he told BBC Radio Shropshire.

"I've been loyal. I had eight years at Tranmere and three at Shrewsbury.

"It's not often a club like Liverpool comes calling, so it's a fantastic opportunity for me," he added.

"I'm sorry to leave Shrewsbury, as it's a progressive club with good people going in the right direction, but moving to Liverpool is something I can't wait to get my teeth into."

McMahon, who is the younger brother of former Anfield midfielder Steve, was on Everton's books as a youngster.
