What does it mean to represent Liverpool FC:
"From my early days of playing soccer, the name Liverpool FC has been synonymous with quality soccer and an overwhelming passion for the game from both the club and it's supporters. Throughout my life playing and coaching soccer, Liverpool's greats -- both coaches and players -- have been some of the people who have inspired me and fueled the passion I have for the game. To now have the opportunity to work for this great club is fantastic for me and I look forward to sharing the pride and passion of what it means to be part of the Liverpool family to the families in this club and the surrounding communities."
