What does it mean to represent LFC:
"I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the Liverpool FC Family. It is important to me to be involved with a club that is committed to developing both the player and the person -- and the Liverpool FC Way has a strong foundational value of fostering passion and a love for the game while also placing an emphasis on player development. My own coaching philosophy aligns very much with the Liverpool FC model and I could not be happier that I have joined a club that values what I value. I am even more excited to be working closely with the girls side of Liverpool -- and I'm eager to help the girls and young women in the club grow their skill, character, and passions as they progress through their time at Liverpool."
